My model 12 pump 12 gauge is stuck in the bolt open postion.

It's manufactured in 1948 and shot very little. When the release is activated the pump handle moves rearward about an inch, but that is as far as it goes.

Should take it to a gunsmith, but if you want to loosen it yourself, get some spray gun cleaner, or even gun oil (light) and put it inside as much as possible, keeping in mind that it may be loaded with a stuck cartridge(point in safe direction at ALL times). Loosen with the lubricant, open action up and inspect throughly. If there is a cartidge in it, discard safely, as the lube may have ruined it and an old cartridge may be unsafe. If you can get the action open, try to clean out possible corrosion with swabs and q-tips soaked in the lube. Depending on how it was stored all this time, you may have to disassemble and lube more completely. Google the name and model number to try to find diagrams or assembly help.
The best thing is to take it to an "old-timer" who is familiar with older shotguns and have them inspect it, or take it to a gun show or shop.
Treat it as Loaded until you can prove otherwise by opening the action! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIRE!

Trying to find year and manufacturer of a single shot 410 breakover shotgun. Serial number L5972 has serated area by notched site.


iver johnson single barrel champion shotguns with a single letter suffix to the serial number were manufactured between 1920 and 1929. it seem that most of the 410 were used quite a bit and very few are in excellent condition. the original finish was an oil finished stock, browned barrel and case hardened frame.

CHAMPION MODEL 36--------------------------------1909-1922
Single barrel; rebounding center mounted hammer; top lever operated break open design; gauges: 12, 16, and 20; barrel length: 28, 30, and 32 inches (features barrel and lug forged in one piece) bored full chock only; American black Walnut but* stock and fore-end; automatic extractors; weight 6¾ pounds; overall length with 30 inch barrel 45 inches; case hardened receiver (nickel available as option), browned barrel; automatic ejectors extra cost option; .410 bore, 24 and 28 gauges offered in 1913; 24 gauge dropped 1928; all gauges except 12 dropped after 1941; name changed to Champion single Barrel in 1917.
CHAMPION SINGLE BARREL---------------------------1923-1978
This is the same gun as the earlier Model 36 champion except that the smaller gauges are now built on the same frame as the large gagues. See above picture for specifications. The exact year production stopped has not yet been determined. Some of these single barrel shotguns have been seen with Canadian marking, these were most likely shipped to Canada and then marked as there is no evidence that Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works ever had a manufacturing factory in Canada

I replaced the pump and it's working, however, when I turned on the machine and the boiler came up, there's a stream of pressured steam coming out of releasing through the top of the machine. Any id


Hopefully, your pressure gauge is working, and if it is at 1.2 bar or so, then you have a failed anti-suction valve or boiler safety valve.
The ASV is the smaller fitting; it might be stuck, so you could try tapping the little button. The boiler safety valve is another matter - it will open at some point past 1.8 bar, which means the pressurestat is shot or its adjustment has been tampered with.

It's most likely the ASV - they do get stuck open as well as closed...

Where can I get a replacement stock for my J stevens arms & tool co. 12 gauge shotgun serial number 00 219


First, some general info:
The company name was the J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co. up until WW-I. At that time their factories were taken over by New England Westinghouse for war production. After the Great War, Savage acquired the factories in Chicopee Fall, Mass., and set up the J. Stevens Arms Co. a wholy owned subsidiary of Savage Arms Corp. In addition to Stevens firearms thesr factories turned out a lower priced line of guns under the Riverside Arms Co. name up to about 1930 and the Springfield Arms Co. from 1930 to WW-II.
You can begin to date your gun based on the way the Stevens company name is written:
J. Stevens and Company 1867-1886.
J Stevens A&T Co. or
J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, 1886-1915.
- no guns produced 1915-1920
J. Stevens Arms Company 1920-c.1940.
Stevens c. 1940-1991. AND 1999+
if both the Stevens AND Savage names appear, post 1948.
After 1948, all Stevens and Savage guns carried a date code stamped onto the gun. The date code stamp is a circle or oval containing a letter and a number. The letter coorespondes to the year of manufacture using the following translation. A is 1949. B is 1950 and so on through X. This code can be found almost anywhere on the gun and sometimes requires removing the stock to find it.
Also, later ones share a common platform with Savage Arms.
That said, you can find parts for Savage/Stevens/Springfield/Fox here:

When was my winchester model 12 16ga shotgun serial#787927 manfactured?


Nicknamed, the Perfect Repeater at its introduction, this shotgun se tthe standard for pump action shotguns throughout its fifty one (51) year high rate manufacture and production life. From 1912 until the shotgun was first discontinued by Winchester in 1963, nearly two million Model 12 shotguns were manufactured and produced in various barrel lengths and grades. Initially the M12 was chambered strictly for 20 gauge, however 12 and 16 gauge versions came out in or around 1914, and the 28 gauge version of the Winchester Model 12 came out in 1934. A .410 version was never produced; instead, a stripped down variation of the Model 12, commonly known as the Model 42, was derived directly from scaled drawings of the model 12 and produced instead. The year of manufacture for serial number 787927 is 1939. hope this helps! im pretty sure that this is right. check it out on the web.

My little giant 554425 will not come on


Hi,
Either the float is stuck or the pump is stuck...
To release the float a good shot to the side of the pump is all that it will take....
If that does not work then a few screws and the top will come off.. the pump is a very simple spinner.. make sure ther is nothing jammed in there...
if that all checks out replace the unit, the motor is shot....
you should be able to find a new one at a HVAC supply house for around fifty bucks...or check www,grainger.com for a replacement condensate pump.
