Hi, I have purchased a Franz Kettner cape gun in 16g/9.3x72R. This has beautiful engraving and awesome Burl wood and appears to be in great condition. Has anybody here had any experience with this maker? Posted in the right forum now, thanks for the messages.

Show some pics of the gun and any script or numbers, these guys can give you its pedigree. Especially barrel and action flats.
Kettner sold some great prewar pieces. I have a pair I’m the family custodian of for now.

I looked at all the guns, mine has the action release under the forearm and it’s made of Buffalo Horn as is the long trigger guard. Thanks for posting that. My German is very rusty however.

Texasbdog,
AS you have likely figured out by now, Franz Kettner mostly marketed other maker's guns rather than making them "in house". Many of the guns marked Kettner but made by someone else may have a "house mark" of the actual maker somewhere on the gun, though not all of them. This is why it is important that clear photos of all markings should be posted. Even if the actual maker can't be identified, proof marks can provide other important information.

I have pictures of all the proof marks I think. Journeymen is sending me an email so I can send them too him. I’m very curious bout this gun. The serial number is 628.
