Just picked up this 16 g ejector German Trade gun-
No serial no. , just the proof dates and gauge/chamber markings with Simson and Schilling indicators. Any speculation on how this gun came to be?
Lunchbox gun hidden away from Nazi takeover of Simson?
What does the " 2" on the watertable and forearm metal refer to? W on the barrel and the small "L" marks ?
No makers buttplate, just a grooved horn material. Stock has normal dings, dents , but the metal work , all screws and bores are in great shape.
