Welcome Larry. A Research Letter would provide the gauge, DOM, original configuration, and to where the gun was shipped https://lcsca.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=43784&module_id=245742 If a 12g the chambers would be (unless otherwise marked or after-market lengthened) 2 3/4"; 16g or 20g could be shorter and need to be measured, as does the choke constriction. There is also a great deal of information in the FAQs https://lcsca.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=274&club_id=43784 ANY vintage double deserves a check and clean by a qualified double gun smith before use.

Larry, If it is a 12 gauge gun, it would have been built in 1919. Go to FAQ on the site and there are is a lot of info there. Best, Mike
