Just bought this one, I found the old catalog pic but nothing else anywhere. Anyone have any information or have seen one sell?
I just bought the thing since it’s the only German drop lock I had seen in the flesh.

I have no information to contribute, but that French catalogue ad copy is scenery-chewing poetry.

Can you show how to drop the bottom plates and remove the locks.
It doesn’t appear to operate as the WR drop locks I have seen.
Best Regards,

Better pictures is really making that wood pop! What a score. Lovely gun with a pretty cool action.

Thanks, I had never handled a drop lock before this. I always assumed the triggers on these would probably be less than nice. Pleasantly surprised. Anyone else shoot a drop lock and what are the pros and cons?
