    I was recently offered a Remington Rider single barrel in a .28 ga. I don't know much about these guns, othere than they have a cocking lever on the side of the receiver. I thought since this was a .28 it might be worth something. Anyone have any information they would like to share? Thanks. Blair

    Blair, if I recall, the number 3 sidehammer was the first made, number 9 was next with a few minor changes and looked better overall. I've never seen a .28 ga. though.

    Many of these old guns were shot with black powder shotshells, watch out for mild to severe bore pitting.

    Blair-

    In my 30th edition blue book it lists the Model no 3 and Model no 9 single barrel.

    No.3- 12 ga., single barrel, 30 or 32 in. barrels, top lever break open, button release forend, plain pistol grip stock. Aprox. 87,850 mfg. 1893-1903.

    No.9- similar to No. 3, screw release forend, auto ejector. 65,698 mfg. 1902-10.

    The book lists 11 values but no percentages. $450 - $65 for both.

    The text is verbatim, no mention of .28 ga.
