I don't have an Iver to check, but most single shots have a release mechanism in the forearm. Look for a metal arm in the center of the forearm, recessed. Most SS simply use the lever for a pull down release. If no lever or button, try pulling down on the forearm itself. One of mine has this feature.

Once the forearm is off, simply release the barrel (as if to load) and the barrel is usually free at this point.

Hey, someone else who actually has one of these! My grandfather passed his on to me, and it's proven to be a great Trap gun for me. To disassemble the Champ, you simply pull down on the forearm, and it'll pop off. Then you push the lever on the tang to the side, as you normally would to load the chamber. After the action breaks open, just grab the barrel and push down/pull towards the buttstock. It'll pop right off.

Doesn't get much easier than that. :) Enjoy your excellent shotgun!

thanx for the replys
dam that was a tight fit unreal it came apart just as you described thanx alot dude
and i came by my shotgun the same way it was my father inlaws and sat in the garage for 31 years .
only to be resurected but i wish the bore was looked after .but that came up mighty fine with jb bore paste ,it still had the case hardening on the reciever but no more lots of rust to get rid of.
Is there a way to get that case hardened look again??? im guessing it will be chemical process??
thanx again guys
