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.
Best Regards,
JBP

Three triangles with S is Simson trademark though the 'S' is usually contained inside the middle triangle. Wonderful gun with outstanding engraving.

Sure looks like one gun of a multi-gun set.

The 2 on the action, forearm, and barrel
so as not to confuse it with like components
from the #1 gun.

The W and other marks are most likely the tube makers

That would be my guess too. That gun is of high enough quality to be one of a pair. But odd that it isn't marked 2 on the outside, as is typical on pairs.

These are much better photos than on the other thread. The Simmons logo is clear now. The barrels are marked 16/70 and the action shows a 16/70 on each side of the water table. There is a 16.70( note the period). This is confusing. If there were 16 months in a year, I would say it is a date. I believe it is a post war, East German gun and I am not as "up on" East German marks as I would like to be.

A very nice quality sideplayed boxlock. I have one similar to it in 12g, but it was a Merkel action and it has fine engraving instead of the deep relief.
I am surprised that given the high quality of the build that it does not have a makers name on it.
