Was this gun built with 2-3/4" chambers?

Very little chance of that. Anything other than 2 3/8" original chambers would possibly be mentioned on the original order or stock book entry.

No, I don't mean 2 5/8". I meant 2 3/8" meant to be used with 2 1/2" shells a common boring of the day for 20 gauge guns.
