Thank you . Bob

Don't know the chamber size, but there are a few good choices for home defense, Winchester PDX1, 000 Buckshot. 2 1/2" has 3 000 pellets and the 3" has 5 000 pellets. Any of these will deter a bad guy.

The 3" Brenneke Slug will take out just about anything up to 350 lbs.

"Can you tell me when it was made"

Sometime after 1977 is the best I can do. That's when it was introduced.
