Happy new year to all.
I would be very grateful if someone would point me in the right direction regarding the proof marks on the gun shown below:
My apologies for the quality of the pics.
My question is: Is that marked 1200 Kp/c (which seems to be low for a magnum proofed gun) or is that supposed to be Kg/c?
The question is in itself moot as I use it with magnum shells and was told when I bought it that it would handle any known 12 gauge shell upto 3". I have always wondered about the marking.
Any other info would be much appreciated.
The gun itself is marked "Super Solway" and was bought from Elderkin and Sons, Gunmakers in the UK in 1984. It is just a non ejector wildfowler with thirty two inch barrels and three inch chambers made by AyA.
I use it for ducks (lead shot, I do not live in the USA or UK and am not required to use non-tox.)and it spends much time in boats and saltwater and looks it. The bores are mirror though!
All the best
