Thank you !

The hammergun is a 20ga, marked on the rib "Mannesmann Acier Special", whatever that means.

You're correct on the Ithaca - it's a ca.1911 28ga Flues grade 1-Special (steel barrels & upgraded wood) - a very early 28ga.

Mannesmann Special Steel, probably a Belgian maker, possibly French.

Thanks


In my many years of collecting I have only seen one case with The Winchester name. I'm sure the Winchester name will bring a premium but I can't say how much. Suspect the case could be used for M12's as well.

LOM cases are only a hinderance to folks who like to drive around and jump out of the truck and shoot birds, in states where transporting a gun uncased is illegal. :-)


Like was said earlier if you hunt several spots in one day take down cases are a pain in the arse.

Plus I don't shoot my guns dry and I also don't care for dust or lint on the working parts of my action.

I don't even care for take down cases going to the range....I got a brand new top of the line 34" Americase I bought and have used one time....'get gun out of the safe take gun apart get to the gun club take gun out of case lube and put back together....it never ends it's just one continuous never ending line of unnecessary bull.

But If you are a fair weather hunter then take down LOM cases are great and the kOOl factor is just immense...

"Billy bOb wood you have a look see at that feller...Wonder what air lOOm he got stuffed off in the weird looking case....Billy bOb you think itz one of them tomson sheen guns...

Fred it might be a violin and he's going to play for us.

Gezzzz Billy bOb I can sure tell he means business...".

Myself I could give a damn what Billy bOb or Fred thinks.

If it's raining or snowing and you and your gun are wet I'd rather have a zippered case I can get my gun in quickly and that I can also dry out pretty quick back at the hotel room.

I guess you could carry one of them small puppy tents around with you to cover you and your gun and your kOol gun case while you're packing up.

As one get's older the kOOl factor plays less and less a factor in most peoples lives.

Unless of course you never had a Harley Davidson before you were 30....

Then Katy bar the door.

We all know the 50 or 60 year old guy with his first Harley right ?

He's looking kOOl on that Harley with his pockets full of Viagra....kinda tempting.



Not the first time I've had to eat crOw...ran up on a Bianchi leg O mutton case and I'm a sucker for Bianchi gun leather.

I have a question.

I've got a 16g. French hammergun made in the 1870s, with the odd French feature of having the fore-end permanently attached to the action. When you taken the gun down, you release the fore-end, then lift out the barrels, and your shotgun is in two parts. You don't get three.

I've been wondering: what did the French use for cases for these kinds of guns? The conventional leg-of-mutton will never work.

Yes, like this one.

I kinda like LOM cases, if they're old ones, for old guns. I've got several makes, but the Redheads are usually pretty nice cases. I do use Beretta "socks" to slip the gun in before putting it in the LOM case, tho'.



For the more modern guns I use a maker's "flat case"....................Perazzi, Beretta, FAIR, Dickinson, etc.

Well, it has been said that you learn something everyday, and I guess this was my lesson for today. I have a couple of LOMs that I use and I have always thought about how with a couple of guns they sometimes are loose and move around a bit. I always looked them over closely for any bluing wear, etc. I never even thought to put them in a sock, of which I have several, to alleviate the movement. Amazing the little things you can overlook, eh!? Thanks for the lesson!!!

Those Beretta two piece socks are nice, and not overpriced.

You see a few LOM cases for two barrels. Few months ago a LOM case for three barrels was on EBay. That was an odd one. I wondered how heavy it would be with three barrels in it. Guess it was for the hunter with s set of 26”, 28” and 30” barrels for his one favorite gun. I’ve seen many two barrel sets, both factory and composed with orphan barrels but only a couple three barrel sets of any type.

I like LOM cases, maybe the looks more than the functionality. For long distances or extended use I have other cases which I like more. But for a quick trip to the club or a local hunt they work well.
