    I've had this for a little over a year and am just getting around to looking at it. It's a Riverside Arms Takedown 12ga.

    The only marking on the receiver is on the right side and it says:

    RIVERSIDE ARMS CO.
    Chicopee Falls,Mass. U.S.A.

    It's the double humpback model with the trigger guard safety.

    Serial # is 65xx B

    It originally had a 30" fixed choke barrel on it but there was a bulge about 7" from the muzzle and the muzzle had a small dent in it. So, I did what any man would do and cut the barrel to ~18.5".

    I know finding a date of manufacture is pretty tough. I was hoping someone could give me maybe a date within 5 years.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Adam
