Restored grandfathers shotgun 16ga. Boxlock. Now is a little restored and it´s only for my pleasure.

IT is unknown manufacturer, there are some Belgian proof mark on it. There are also and some unknown. I'll post them later (bad light now).

Raimey, Jani, Lagopus, .. once said, "Quite a puzzle." If you have any idea who might be manufacturer please post .
It's nice to shoot the shotgun, which is 30 years left in an old house in the village.










Thanks, Mario

Mike, Looks like your shotgun, proof mark was 60-70% the same.

PV is in the same place but without a lion on it, small letters on the barrels are in the same positions, as well as mark of their weight. Original butplate not the same.

Tomorrow, I will photograph and put on a post.I am not on the same computer tonight.

Thanks, Mario.

Quite the puzzle indeed especially without pic of the marks but I'll give it a stab anyway: Cugir - http://www.umcugir.ro/hunting%20rifle.htm

Thank you for joined in Raimey, that really look like,
On the website Cugir writes that only after the Second World War started to produce weapons. "Since 1945 we have produced soviet type weapons and ammunitions", if not mistaken.
My gun is older than that.

Tomorrow I will photograph and post a picture of proof marks.

Thanks, Mario

Ah, Mario, you knew I couldn't pass up a good puzzle. I look forward to the pics. It might be Czech with Belgian sourced components. I can't remember if the craftsmen near the Cugir Arsenal sourced Belgium or not. In what country was the house in which it was found or located?

What's the language there: http://www.umcugir.ro/index.htm ?



Kind Regards,

It seems too simple an answer and I wasn't sure. But thanks for the conformation. Just a dialect difference between there & folks in the Czech Republic?

The Romanian and Czech languages are very different. While the Czechs are Slavs, Romanians are not.

With kind regards,
Jani
