    looking for manual or tear own instructions for Iver Johnson 12 gauge

    I just picked up an Iver Johnson Champion 12 guage. It's in pretty rough shape. No rust, a little pitting, but the blueing is about 60 percent gone. The gun has had the barrel cut down to 18-1/2 inches by a gun smith.

    I want to do a cold blue treatment on it but thought it would tunr out better if I tore it down to blue. Unfortunatly I am new to shotguns and don't want to get in over my head.

    Could someone point me to a link where I could find an owners manual or a description of how to tear the gun down?

    I did find this:

    But I dont get how your supposed to remove screws #552 and 555 since the barrel has to come off to get to them.

    I would really like a manual, and would be willing to pay for it.

    Thanks, but I already looked there. I have found that Iver Johnson sold the guns other other brands too, such as:

    T. BARKER H& D Folsom Co. New York wholesaler
    BLACKFIELD Hibbard-Spencer & Bartlett Co. Chicago wholesaler
    BLACKIMP K-S-CO Keith-Simmons Co. San Francisco wholesaler
    CHALLENGER George Worthington Co. Cleveland Ohio wholesaler
    DIAMOND ARMS CO. Shapleigh Hardware Co. St. Louis wholesaler
    EASTERN ARMS CO. Retailer Sears, Roebuck & Co. (just before or just after WWII)
    FAMOUS Hirch Mercantile Co San Francisco California wholesaler
    FALCON National Lead Co. San Francisco California wholesaler
    HERMITAGE K-S-CO Keith-Simmons Co. Nashville TN wholesaler
    IDEAL Charles Williams Stores Brooklyn New York retailer
    KING NITRO Shapleigh Hardware Co. St, Louis wholesaler
    MARSHFIELD (MARSHWOOD?) Charles Williams Stores Brooklyn New York retailer
    MONITER Paxton & Gallager Co. Omaha, Nebraska wholesaler
    NEWPORT Hibbard-Spencer & Bartlett Co. Chicago wholesaler
    OLYMPIC ARMS CO. Morley & Murphy Hardware, Green Bay WI and Morley Brothers Saginaw MI wholesalers
    RANGER Retailer Sears, Roebuck & Co. (just before or just after WWII)
    REVONOC (REV-O-NOC) Richardson & Conover Hardware Co, Kansas City also see with Hibbard-Spencer & Bartlett name
    SCOUT Frankfurth Hardware Co. Milwaukee WI wholesaler/retailer
    SIOUX Larson Hardware Co. SD wholesaler/retailer
    TRIUMPH Montgomery Wards & Co retailer
    TRUE BLUE Shapleigh Hardware Co. St. Louis wholesaler
    VOLUNTEER Belknap Hardware Co. St Louis wholesaler
    WESTERN FIELD Montgomery Wards & Co retailer
    XLCR W. Bingham Co. Cleveland Ohio wholesaler


    If any of these sound familar to anyone, I would appreciate some help.
    As nears as I can tell they were manufactured in Fitchburg Mass so if anyone has a single shot with one of these names and especially if it is made in Fitchburg, I would be interested in hearing from you.

    In all reality if you are just going to do a cosmetic bluing I wouldn't go past a field strip,then I would go ahead and follow instructions for blueing,downside is cold blue jobs don't hold up real well over time
