Thanks. Will post next week when it arrives. I plan on installing horn basket weave plate, so will weigh much less without the pad. Those buggered hinge pin caps should be easy Enough to fix. Hopefully everything is tight, you never really know till they arrive.

It is an Anson & Deeley Body Action platform with cocking indicators made towards the end of WWI or the early 1920s in Suhl. The tubes were either sourced from Hänel where they were completed by the most competent mechanic Gebhard Helmuthhauser / Gebhard Helmuthäuser or Gebhard Helmuthäuser who was listed @ Bergstraße 1 or Gebhard Helmuthhauser / Gebhard Helmuthäuser or Gebhard Helmuthäuser was sourced for the tube work. There are some odd single >>K<<s on the tubes and the serial number is low so I would hazard a guess it was a Suhl young >>K<< mechanic that was trying to make some bread money @ the end of WWI.

Any monogram on the butt; logo on the floorplate or steel stamp?

Cheers,

No names or other stamps I have lots of pics but won’t get gun till next week.
Never seen this engraving pattern before but like the style. I have extractor gun very similar. More pics






Thankfully they just added pad without cutting or squaring off..
Horn trigger guard and grip cap intact.
Still looking for that lindner 16 ga deal but till then I will keep finding these.
I will have to get those slots fixed it will drive me crazy.

Here is my leberecht that looks similar. I can see taking both of these guns to have a backup on dove hunts. One zella other suhl. Amazing I bought both of these for less than a new Benelli. Insanity.

Yeah, that floorplate engraving is different & looks like pineapples??? But there the engraved amoebas around the floorplate screw looks to form a >>H<<. Is there similar engraving on the sides of the frame? What ejector platform is it?

Cheers,
