One non-technical test is to hang the barrel loose by a line and give it a moderate rap with a wooded dowel or hammer handle and listen for any rattles. It should ring. You will recognize the sound what you hear it .....
This is info I’m looking for. Thank you. And yes the tire and string proof test will obviously be conducted. I don’t know why I just want an original side by side percussion shotty and examples in firing condition won’t get any cheaper. Even the ones of lesser reputation.
