I am not sure all that chicken scratching adornment is pre-WWII. But I could be easily mistaken.

I have no idea when that engraving was done but, it was done by a master. It does not have that bas relief, Germanic style to it, IMO.

Not all engraving can stand the scrutiny of magnification to the extent that gun can. Just superb.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

Jtplumb is correct that this O/U Krieghoff is more that just what meets the eye.

A selective Safety to switch between Automatic & Non. Have you seen such Stan?? Also, can you ID the single trigger type??

The adornment just maybe >>Jugendstil<< or Art Nouveau???

It is the switch / toggle on the triggerguard bow that has me puzzled. I am not much of a Single Trigger follower, so I really have no idea of its function.

Any thoughts on the selective single trigger?(Joseph Kautzky or an early Miller??) There's a thread around here somewhere that several are ID'd and discussed.

Also, there's another Krieghoff / Remington(Maybe REMO) thread where a similar O/U is compared.

This is a release for trigger group or drop lock. I have seen Krieghoff drillings with removable trigger group but was different design. It would be exciting to see a tru drop lock here, I know kettner sold a sxs drop lock.

That is exactly what it is just like on the Krieghoff Primus Drieling. Sometimes one has to hold their teeth just right to slip it back into battery.

With the top latch design that looked like a Westley Richards variant I was hoping for the mystical German drop lock?

Mariner Browning had a single trigger that looked like this one from the outside, I mean exactly like this. I wonder where he might have found that design after seeing this one.

I’m sure it’s a trigger plate blitz action with it being o/u it would have to be something nobody has seen before.
