    ****FOR SALE IS A "CHAMPION" SINGLE SHOT 12GA SHOTGUN MADE BY IVER JOHNSON'S ARMS & CYCLE WORKS SOMETIME BEFORE 1915****

    The condition is fair/good (see pics)..

    the barrel is 19"...

    $100 obo..

    "The Iver Johnson "Champion" was first made in 1880. It had twist steel barrels, exposed hammer and a top lever to open it. The stock was walnut. It was called the Top Snap. The next version is the Side Snap which has a side lever to open it. There was also a Side Snap Hammerless. All were made from 1880 to 1900.

    The Top Snap improved was made from 1901 to 1904.

    The Champion Top Snap was marked "Champion" and manufactured from 1905 to 1908. It opened with a top lever, has a 28", 30", or 32" browned barrel, a rebounding hammer, and ejector. The receiver is case hardened and the stock is walnut."

    I would check with a gunsmith before even thinking of firing this gun with todays loads..

    call Ken @ (503)998-7769 with any questions or interest..

    thanks for looking!
