Is it breech loaded? Could you add a photo of it opened?

It's a breech loader. Never saw a percussion with a lever lock. M__

What Mazo said about test firing the gun in a tire. Shooting it in a vice will loosen or damage the stock.

Mike, ya done good! I have an old tire that I use to shoot questionable guns; put the butt inside the tire (flat on the ground) pull trigger(s) with a long cord. I need to get back to my shotgun projects!

I was walking out of a gun show a couple months ago and noticed this old shotgun hidden under some junk at one of the tables.   Stopped and asked bout it,  it had a $200 tag on it.   I was joking with the gal at the table that I thought it said $20 not $200.   She thought I was serious and countered with $25.   Of course I gave her $25 and took it home with me.     It's a cheap old hardware store gun but it locks up tight and everything functions well.  Someone sanded the stock so most of the metal is proud of the wood and the checkering is sanded flat.  The right side hammer screw has been replaced with a hardware store metric screw but it works OK.   I'll find a correct screw somewhere.   I think it's a shootable piece but I'll probably mount it in a vise and bag it down to fire it the first few rounds.    I'm going to load some brass shells myself so the loads will remain light.
