All this worn chicken scratching is Sauer numbers and process marks along with a script >>K<< in a jagged circle which denotes tube work by either a Kelber or Klett. This tube mechanic received compensation by applying this stamp as well as accepted liability if the tube were to fail.

The Calibre stamp(CAL:.....) near the lower rib is a diameter stamp & was applied by the Belgian mechanic(Liège) that made the pattern welded tubes.

The script >>L<< on the forend hanger for the pin is more than likely for effort by a Langenhan/Gebrüder Langguth/Luck mechanic. Almost all Sauer offerings wear this script L.

All of these are Sauer inhouse process marks. Wildmann w/ Staff, S&S over crossed longarms surmounted by a Crown and lowercase scrip g are all seen in tandem, or coupled, on early Sauer offerings.

We can determine the cartridge the drilling is chambered for, if you provide a chamber cast and "slug" the bore. Neither the serial number and none of the pre- proofmark markings will help in this regard.

There is a 1901 patent date on the rear site(not the pop up peephole site). Was gonna send it off and get it cleaned up but since it has been on it 120 years I reckon I will let it ride.

I don't think the barrel sight is original to the gun. It looks like an add-on, like the tang sight.

In a gun this old, especially one that has been modified, I would definitely slug the barrel and do a chamber cast, even if I knew the original chambering. It could easily have been rechambered.
