What is the value and history of the Nitro Hunter shotgun?

Nitro Hunter: Trade name manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and retailed by Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, Kentucky. "Nitro" implies that it was intended for smokeless powder. That and the hammerless design indicate it was probably manufactured c. 1907 - 1930's. Not much collector interest in hardware store guns, but if it is checked out by a qualified gunsmith, it may be worth $200+ as a shooter.

What is the value of a Champion 20 gauge choke single barrel shotgun?

Since there are no IJ collectors bidding these up unless in like-new original condition, it is worth from 1/2 to 2/3 the price of a new single shot or about $45-$60. Or even less if it is rusted or broken. But then, if you can add a few dollars worth of electrical parts to a rusty one, these are offered as floor lamps for $300 or more.

Are Iver Johnson shotguns well regarded?

IJ shotguns were always well-made and dependable, but inexpensive guns. They did not go the extra mile to make a truly fine firearm with perfect fit and finish that would make them stand out in a crowd.

I received an, old at the time, Iver Johnson 12 Ga "Matted Rib" with 32 inch, full choke barrel,for my 12th birthdayin 1947. That gun has never missed a beat, whether hitting Jack rabbits in the Mojave Desert or cotton tails and pheasants in the fields of Iowa. I've used about every load, including modern high- base in it. I believe it to be as good as any high-dollar gun. My four sons have all used it in their shooting and hunting education.The only complaint ever regestered against it was when it "kicked like a mule" and knocked down a younger and smaller cousin in 1950.That was one of the many times I slipped in a load of oo buck. We after doves at the time and had been using 71/2 or 8. It' still in good shape and looks very good. I reblued it and refinished the stock about i952.The serial number is 31500E. I looked it up in a Stoeger gun catalog a long time ago and saw that it cost a whopping $7.50 when new. I believe it was made about 1895. but I'm not sure of that!I'll probably pass it on to one of my Grandsons someday, since I got it from my Grandfather. Richard Stover

Additional info---When the British Purchasing Commission was after anything in the US that went bang, in 1940-41, it bught a quantity of 38 cal IJ revolvers. However, they were not wellr e garded and considered unsound and at times unsafe. Hence they were not issued to British (or British European allies)but to the various Police forces in Britain. Police at that time were not routinely armed but a PC could, whilst on night duty, simply claim a pistol when goiing on patrol, if they felt likely to be at threat - in London at least.

When was a gun with the serial number 12383 made and what is its caliber?

Since you posted under this topic, I assume you are asking about an Iver Johnson gun. IJ made many different models from 1870 to 1978 and this number may have been used on any or all of them. They made mostly inexpensive revolvers and shotguns and a few automatic pistols. There is no way we can tell you what the caliber is without seeing it. Repost with some details, particularly action type, size, and EVERYTHING that is marked on the gun.

What is the manufacture date of an Iver Johnson 38 SW safety hammer revolver sn h 70781?

1926 The first course of action to discern the value of a gun is to identify the make, model, manufacturing date, and variation. The book "Iver-Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Firearms 1871-1993" by W. Goforth may help accomplish this. Then it's a simple matter of looking your gun up in one of the many firearm value books, such as the Blue Book of Gun Values, or the Standard Catalog of Firearms.

What is the value of a 410 Iver Johnson shotgun?

Well, it's going to depend a lot of exactly what type shotgun it is, but the most common IJ is a break-open single shot. Most utility singles go for $35 to $70, but since you have a 410, there are people out there who will pay $150 - $200 for an old used one when they could buy a new one for $90.

What is the value of a 12 gauge Iver Johnson?

Iver Johnson started making shotguns in 1883 and didn't stop until 1987. There will be a lot of different 12 gauges in there and the value will depend on the age, model, and (most of all) condition. These were well-made and dependable guns but not the sort that collectors shell out big bucks for. Regardless of the model, unless it is like new it is unlikely to be worth more than $250. Conversely, unless it is broken or badly rusted, it should be worth at least $50.

Can you fire a 30 mm round in an M5 5.7 mm carbine made by Iver Johnson and if not what size should it be?

5.7mm = .224(in inches).... So a 30 cal. wont work because a .30 cal is .076 in. larger than what you need.

You CANNOT fire the .30 Carbine round in that gun. You need to obtain 5.7mm Johnson (Spitfire) ammunition. If you subtract 5.7mm from 30mm, you find that the 30 mm is a big honker, about 1.2 INCHES in diameter, 24 mm larger than the 5.7. The US Military uses 20 mm CANNONS. I'm tempted to say, if you can stuff it in there, go for it. But I fear that you might. I will say, NEVER use ammo in a gun that was not specifically designed for it. Somehow, though, the image of a 1 inch cannon shell being stuffed into a roughly 24 caliber weapon does give me a chuckle, though. Think it through, then try it. A bit of thought here would work wonders. Be careful. No, you absolutely can not fire .30 carbine in an M-1 Carbine chambered for 5.7 MMJ (.22 Spitfire, .22 Johnson, whatever). First of all, the bolt won't close on the round if you try, which is a Very Good Thing. If it did, and you pulled the trigger on it, you would be in for a lengthy hospital visit and short one M-1 Carbine.
