iver johnson champion 12 ga single

I would like to get a rough idea as to when my champion was made .
The serial number on the trigger guard is : 43487
The serial number on the barrel lug is : 06908
The barrel is 30 " long , is choke bored ( real tight choke ) and bright and shiny. A couple of people have told me this gun was made for bp but I seen bp bores on vintage arms and most of the barrels looked like they had pot holes... this barrel is perfect. I believe this is not the original barrel
I have fired high velocity rounds ( #5 shot ) with no problem . I generally keep the gun on the tractor so when the occasion arises I can put a rabbit or some squirrel in the pot for supper.
I anyone has an idea as to how to put a date on this gun I would appreciate it
