I just acquired a 12 ga. Iver Johnson with 32 inch f/f barrels and ejectors. The
gun has etched on left side of action: Iver Johnson and under this brand name
Hammer forged. Is this gun a earlier version of the Hercules Super Trap? It
mounts a high rib and looks like a Trap gun. When was it manufactured? Any other
information would be appreciated. As further info, the gun has a high solid rib and splinter fore-end with ejectors. Serial number is 5109E.....any idea of date of manufacture?
