I recently got this Charles Daly (Sauer) drilling. Any help with these proof marks be greatly appreciated. I the serial number is 39885(I am guessing mid to late 1890s). Was sold as 30-30 but if that is same as modern 30/30 there is no neck down case and the chamber looks fairly unform(not a necked down case). This is my second drilling and these are never sold accurately. (Last was suppose to be 20g ended up being a 16g lined to shoot a modern 28g over 11mm Mauser.). This one so far at least the shotgun caliber is correct 12x12. [img]https://postimg.cc/gallery/KFdbT88[/img]

Here are some more pictures. Note the funky rear peep site which was added (I guess the original got broken) and the front site replacement. (Can’t expect much better for under $1k).

Those sights look like retro fits. Can you pleasure us with some images of the marks / stamps on the underside of the tubes?

Typically a best guess for these gems would be 38-55?

If you could show a chamber cast or even "slug" the barrel, we could likely ID the caliber, assuming it is a Daley( they were mostly American calibers).

Here is info from a gunsmith about the gun.

Yes the peep site is definitely added but looks pretty old(looks like brass screws). If appears not well placed/centered.

The Wildmann / Cavemann w/ a Staff is a Sauer trademark as well as an internal process mark. The Imperial Eagle is also a Sauer internal process mark. All of these marks are Sauer inhouse stamps that pre-date the 1891/1893 German proofmark laws.
