I am selling my last 10 gauge it is a incredibly nice condition shotgun. I have owned this gun for 5 years and have shot only a couple of times. I had planned to do a lot of research on it but time slipped by and never did. I did see that there is more information now then when I purchased the gun. A search of the web will provide more information.

The German hunting gun web site stated this and has a catalog in German.
Paubel, Carl/Karl- Suhl

Carl or Karl Paubel took over the J. Funk & Co. firm in Suhl sometime between 1873 and 1882. The J. Funk and Co. firm was founded in 1854 by J. Funk and Robert Schmidt. In 1873 they had 80 employees and exported to Russia, England & America.

Carl Paubel was located at Pfarrstraße 3. Following is a price list from Axel Pantermühl’s vast archive. The address on the barrel (Porussia) is not a mis spelling. Porussia was an area relatively close to the Russian border and referances to it go back to the 16th Century and up to the late 19th Century.
My understanding is Carl Paubel was related to the Funks and took over that business.
The pictures speak for themselves on the quality of this shotgun. It’s just as nice in person as the pictures reflect. The wood finish is original and very nice. Checkering is fine and sharp, bores are excellent with 4” of choke length. The original Horn Butt Plate is excellent with no worm holes. The Damascus finish n the barrels is original and has great contrast. Gun “ SNAPS ” Closed and is perfectly on face. Case color is original and I believe better than 90%.
If you have questions please feel free to PM me.

Here is some information on this fine gun.

The gun is interesting. It has some features similar to the Lindner sourced Daly and other maker's guns. I wonder what the forend loop looks like. Nice gun.

Stunning gun. If I didn't already have a 10 gauge Hollis hammer gun, I'd be tempted.
