Hello to the group. I have a nice gun I would like more info on. It is a Hugo Hensel combination gun. 16ga and 8x57 with 27.5" barrel. It has claw bases and a very nice stock, cocking indicators and lifters. 6# 3oz. total weight. I could not find it in the blue book (for information on the gun).
Does anyone have a source for knowledge on this pretty little thing? Thank you. Trying to post photos.
Forward the pics to me & I'll gladly post them for you.
Looks like there was a Carl / Karl Hensel, Hugo and A. Schmickal @ some point. Maybe I can sort it out.
Raimey, thank you for the help. How should I forward pics to you? I can attach to email but need address.
Look @ my profile or send me PM. Or I can send you one.
It would be helpful if you send Raimey photos of the proof marks on the bottom of the barrels, so he can post them. While I never estimate the value of someone else's gun that I don't have "in hand". I will say you can expect the value to be lessened somewhat due to the replaced or refinished buttstock( it doesn't hurt for using it, however).
