Identification of gun manufacturer
      #346941 - 18/11/20 11:41 PM

Dear gun lovers!

My brother asked me to find out a manufacturer of the gun he inherited. Although, I love guns but I am not a specialist this culture. I try to share the link on my Dropbox where I have photos of the rifle (can try to use another server).
I deduced only that the gun was fabricated before 1939 in Germany. I honestly could not find the mark of the manufacture in the internet. The main purpose of this research is interest, the second purpose of it is the value of it.
I hope you could help me with this.

Thank you in advance!

Andy

There are a lot of marks on the gun to answer your questions. A good way to decode these marks is to use the "Standard Directory of Proof Marks" which you can buy on the Internet.

If you are sure it is a German Gun, you can repeat this post on the German Gun Collectors site and get many helpful comments.

Have fun with it.

No idea on the manufacturer but it does have typical German shotgun proofs.
12 bore with choked barrels made January of 1913 maybe?

Not a particularly valuable gun Iím afraid.
