Will an Iver Johnson Champion 12 gauge gunstock fit a Newport 12 gauge single shot?
There were 3 different models of the champion shotgun in 16 gauge that were produced.The Iver Johnson champion top snap model was made from 1905-1908.The champion model 36 was made from 1909-1922.The champion single barrel was made from 1923-1978.If your shotgun has a serial number and a prefix letter before the serial number,we should be able to identify the year of production.Please include this in your description to help better identify the year of production.
single barrel was probably an Iver Johnson. There were double barrel models made probably by Iver Johnson and possibly Stevens. They were made under contract after WWI for Sharpliegh Hardware in St Louis. This was common practice as Iver Johnson would put your Company name or logo or P/N on anything they made . Iver Johnson originally made bicycles and merged into firearms. Their Champion guns were sold with as many as 20+ different names…

Where can you get a barrel for a 12 gauge single shot receiver stamped EXCEL that fits a stock from an Iver Johnson but not the barrel?
Iver Johnson did use the 'EXCEL' trade name for some hardware store guns. However, the guns are earlier than the more common Iver Johnson Champion model and Champion barrels will not fit the EXCEL marked frames. You will have to keep searching the internet, eBay, etc, and hope that somebody puts one out for sale. email@example.com

Where can you find the age and other information about an Eastern Arms Co 16 gauge single shot which was made by Iver Johnson Arms for Sears?
That will depend on which Iver Johnson you have. The one most commonly encountered is the single shot Champion which will range from $25 for a parts gun to $150 in like-new condition. If it has a matted rib, add $25 in all grades. If it has a ventilated rib, those prices nearly double. Then there are the Skeeter Model and the Super Trap, both single shots which run from $375 to $1100. A Hercules…
We cant verify the SD108 model number, however: The "Hercules" was the trade name used by the Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works on shotguns made for the Montgomery Ward Co. Of Chicago. The "Hercules" made for Wards was a copy of the Iver Johnson "Champion" model which is a single shot shotgun with exposed hammer. They were made between 1909 and 1956.
You still haven't told me what type of shotgun it is, but Newport was a Brand Name used by Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co, Chicago (1882-1962). If it is a double barrel sidelock with outside hammers, it was probably made by Crescent Arms Co, Norwich, CT. A double barrel hammerless boxlock more likely by J Stevens Arms Co, Chicopee Falls, MA. or a single shot exposed hammer by Iver Johnson, Fitchburg, MA. Regardless of the…
Adco has no connection to your shotgun. They import semi-automatic shotguns made in Turkey. Diamond Arms Co was a trade name used by Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis, MO, on shotguns imported from Belgium c. 1880-WWI or made by Stevens and Iver Johnson from about 1900-1940. A single shot with serial numbers is most likely an Iver Johnson Champion.
