I was given a Davenport model 1885 12 gauge with a 30 inch barrel it is in alright condition wood is kinda beat up but would it be safe to shoot modern loads? Dont know its age but was told its real old.

Better have it checked out by a gunsmith. Certain types of barrels on early shotguns wont handle modern loads, Damascus being one of them if I remember right.
