Raimey did you see those in pics? I missed them before.


No, I missed them sounds like G. Helmuthhauser or Haenel?

Unless you mean those in the above pic?

Besides the big H, there were 2 capital Hs with 6 pointed stars above them that I can’t see or make out in this pic. 1 on each tube, but you are better than me at this. If you can see them here that’s awesome I could only see in fluorescent lighting. sounds like it just confirmed your original post above?
Thanks

Looks like same engraver, pineapple/ sad daystar jibberish and barrel mechanic as well?
This one is even a bit more ugly than mine.

Yes indeed. A Zella Sankt Blasii - Mehlis example from September 1923.

One sees that stamp on wares 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. I am not sure on the single >>K<<.

This one just came back,Cole Haugh did a great job. I had him CCH and add a leather pad to my length. Saved another classic German gun and wow I’m happy I did.

Fantastic wood. How does this one differ from Campero's??? I assume it passed thru the Zella-Mehlis proof facility?

This one is out of suhl, Campero’s is definitely a step up from this gun his reminds me of the Kettners(216 model)without the top mounted Kerner top sear. This trade guns engraving looks much better under new case colors, the wood and horn turned out great!
I have learned my length of pull is little longer than I once thought hence the leather pad.
I think this next German 16( the suhl game scenegun) will be a great mate to this one it’s the same measurements and will be receiving the same leather pad. Both have incredible wood for the grade of guns they are.

These 2 will be going on a later season dove hunt soon, I have a 80 acre corn field (not mine) being cut just in time next week.

By the way, Cole repaired some missing horn on the trigger guard of that kettner(I also picked it up today and delivered it to my father in law, happy guy) with some Horn dust and epoxy mix. It turned out great as well.
