Iver Johnson Champion
« on: December 23, 2018, 10:10:21 AM »
This is another rescue piece. I have had it for a year and a half. The exterior of the wood was in rough shape. It had a broken trigger spring and was missing the firing pin and tension spring. Dirty as all get out inside of the receiver. It is in fine working order now and shoots a very good pattern with my hand loaded brass hulls. It is in 12 Ga. and sports a 32 inch BBL. The closest that I have come up for a date of manufacture is between 1920 and 1929.

I have been roaming my local woods the last two days looking for a late season turkey to harvest with it.

I had one in 20 gauge many moons ago.
