How do I confirm year, model and manufacture of a 100 yr old shotgun?
My father has a 12 gauge hunting shotgun given to him by his father who was given to him by a British man. My dad thinks the gun is pre-WWI and bought from Army and Navy Mail Order store that went out of business. He also believes it is 1 of a pair. We located a serial no. on the barrel but don't know what to do from there. My local gunsmith wants to charge $40 to authenticate it.
