Wolfgang - I assumed there were many as well. But it seems this Prince's Hat is specific to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and only certain lands within. The detail that narrows the possibilities further yet is the "R" initial, of course.

Are there any YouTube videos for tearing down a back action hammergun? I do have a set of Chapman screwdrivers. Also, how can I clean the stock without removing finish? I wish I had ultrasonic cleaner for the metal furniture but that's out of the que

When I began reloading in the 1960s the dominant trap load was a Federal paper hull, Federal Primer, 23 grains of Red Dot, a nitro card, two Felton Blue Streaks and 1 1/8 ounce of shot. Then along came the little PGS (Plastic Gas Seal) from Alcan to

The cartridge is too long for an inerta puller? Well color me 'surprised' again. But come to think of it - I said that in my original post. The cartridge in question is 'rare' if you live in the American cartridge world. Otherwise, it's anything but

You might consider posting over on Nitro Express.com as well. A wealth of info and very experienced double rifle shooters frequent that site. Graham Wright's books may shed some light on the subject.

Fuhrmann - I think so too. The Archducal Coronet is similar to the Prince's Hat but there are subtle differences. Looking at an enlarged version of the image on this gun sure looks like the Prince's Hat to me.

I am a good curator, as my guns would indicate. There are better products than 3-in-1 and vaseline, but those work if you keep up with your maintenance. I also like Mobil one and CLP, and a lot of things in between.
