winchester cooey mdl 840 shotgun

i just acquired one in 16 gauge. all it says is proof tested and full choke. i'm wondering if it will handle 3" shells or is it just 2 3/4". is there any way of finding out without going to a gunsmith? some of them have 2 3/4" only but this one has nothing except what i just mentioned.
