Hagens Sports Forretning was a gundealer in Oslo, Norway.
Forretning=business. It still exist as a small gundealer/gunrepair business in one of Oslos suburbs.
To the middle of the fifties Hagen Sport had its business in the main street of Oslo, Karl Johan street.

I believe the A/S translates roughly to mean "share company." Perhaps more or less equal to "corporation."

AS: (Norwegian)Aksjeselskap: Stock/shareholding company. When were the models 200E/201E introduced? I always thought they were a post-war model, while 400 was the pre-war equivalent.

Modell 400 was a cheaper modell than modell 200 and arrived about 1932. Modell 200 come on the market ca 1925.
Both with the hammers at the bottom lockplate.

The 300, 301, 302 has an anson & deeley lock.
101, 201, 301 had better engraving
202, 302 had false sideplates
204, 203, 303, 304 had sidelocks.
204 was a simpler modell than the 203.
300-304 had quadruple closing of barrels.
304 was the top of the range.
400 serie could also be delivered as combination gun shotgun/rifle, with modell nummer 410, 411 with or without ejektor E.

Damn Ellen, I was thinking Denmark for Forretning, which may mean "importer." (About 90% of of words in Norsk and Dansk are the same.)
