Hi all,
Looking for some help. Thought I'd post on this forum since it is more specific to my shotgun.

Any help identifying what model it is, what the initial T on one and the initial W on the other underside of the barrels indicate would be appreciated. The initial H appears on the flats of the stock. Is this a rare gun? I can’t find any similar photos of this fine 1908 Sauer sxs shotgun. Let me know if any of my interpretations of markings etc. are incorrect. Would hand polishing the flats affect the value? Approximate value of this shotgun?

This was my grandfather’s shotgun. Here's what I know about it. SN: 143655, 16 gauge, sxs, 26 ¾ inch, black powder, Krupp 3 Ringe Weapons Grade Steel, chocked barrels, 70 mm chambers, extractor, Greener safety, made March 1 or Jan 3, 1908, by J P Sauer and Sohn, Suhl, Germany. The Krupp barrels were made in Essen Germany. Barrels have a mirror finish. There is also a single crown on the right side of the flat. I’ve read that was Sauer's indicator of excellent barrel material and shooting abilities.

The engraving of the dachshunds is very detailed. If enlarged, there is a buckle shown on one collar and faint markings of field vegetation can be seen around them.

Thanks,
Bob

http://www.shotguns.se/html/1900_to_ca_1914.html Read model VIII ?
I doubt those are dachshunds.
Very nice customized gun,not imported if it says sincher in side safety vs safety.
Probably Gi bring back.
That 3 ring steel is modern fluid steel but needs to be looked at by qualified barrel guy, I would trust those barrels over any modern Turkish guns if original thickness.

It does say sincher in the side safety.
I agree that having it inspected prior to firing it is necessary.
Thanks
Bob

The word on the safety should be "sicher", instead of "sincher". I made additional comments on the other forum.

Yes , it is sicher.
The more I look at the dogs, they are probably chocolate German shorthair pointers. Comments and guesses would be appreciated.
