What’s the manufacturer of a 16 gauge Long Tom?
I have a 16 gauge long tom shotgun number 211684 that has no manufacturer listed on the gun. I need a “open lever” for it and a butt plate. The open lever broke and it was brass welded to put it back into operation, but will not hold for long.
After 1915, and up into sometime in the 30s, they were made by the J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company. Your Long Tom was probably made for smokeless powder, HOWEVER- the length of shotshells was not always 2 and 3 quarters- and 100 years IS getting old.
Is it safe to shoot a Long Tom shotgun?
Please understand that just because an unfired shell will FIT, does not mean it is safe to shoot. Modern shells have a crimp that must have room to unfold- where the ALL brass shells did not. Unless the zombies have chewed their way thru the front door, and all your other guns are inoperative, i would leave the Long Tom hanging in a place of honor.
