jawohl, meine Fruended.. Sicher in Deutsche und Seguridad en Espanol, si como no?? Eine bocksflinten de einer klassen, Ja!! El Zorro- Der Fuchs!!
Como sospechaba es muy bonita y para mi fue fabricada con báscula Sauer por algún armero artesanal Alemán de la época.
Pero mejor continuar en Inglés para dar lugar a que opinen los verdaderos expertos en el tema.
CJ, a german engraver told me that A. Kowalski made the barrels. I don't know who made the gun, but I think it was Bernhard Merkel Suhl (BEMESU). Pictures can resolve this question.
No, not sourced from BEMESU or Sauer as it passed thru the Zella-Mehlis proof facility in late 1929. Interesting ledger stamp of a fraction though? Looks like the tubes were worked after it was originally finished.
Although the longarm wears the name of Büchsenmacher Adrian Kowalski in Ahorn, I do not find him in any period listings. However, I do see that he is currently active. Maybe he performed some task on it in recent times.
I don't know if the engraver was a temperance man or not, but Suhl engraver & historian Henrik Frühauf might be able to identify the engraver.
Raimey, what a surprise! Can you explain more about Zella-Mehlis and why you say is not a Bemesu shotgun.
Have you got Frühauf contact for send him the pictures?
Any touchmarks on the standing breech(area between the strikers) or on the water-table?
Sorry, Raimey, I don't understand you.
Looks a lot like my Simson...my barrels are away at present, so I cannot compare proof marks, but I believe both started at the same factory.
Another possibility! A Bemesu, a Simson... ?? I don't see any horn trigger guard in a Simson gun, so I supose mine is a Bemesu, very similar to some SxS of the catalogue.
