I haven’t bought it yet but if I do those barrels will need to be black/ grey not brown. You may have a closer look soon enough.

That brown on those barrels is definitely not correct, almost looks like a copper wash.

I need to work on black and white finish some more, I usually do a very nice two tone brown that is appropriate on British guns.

I have handled quite a few high condition Daly Lindners & Sauer with pattern welded tubes and they were all brown for some reason. Not sure if over time it is due to patina over time or what?

So, does this Kuhn wear Crown over Crossed Sidearms or HAL over Crossed Sidearms. More than likely the initials >>AS<< denote tube effort by Albert Stobb.

What is that other chicken scratching just below the Crossed Sidearms?

Great piece of wood.

It’s on gun broker.
My Remington 1894 had been returned due to ffl closed down (covid outbreak) and license holder is fighting for his life now. Gary is the Gamebore shell dealer here in Louisville and many of you have ordered shells from him. keep him in your prayers.
I won’t be bidding unless I know what I’m into on the Remington which may be another 2k project and things kinda squirrely with my gun guys all quarantined and sick.
Good luck

So it's pre-1893 Raimey, with the crown over pistols. Also the older style side bolsters on the action.

>> ......the barrels were refinished by Dan Morgon of VT, Auction Locks up nice and tight and barrel are on face , wood is solid no cracks. the receiver is beautifully engraved. This shotgun is marked on barrel Frank Kuhn Maker 476 N. Eighth ST. Philadelphia ,he was at that address from 1881 to 1897, Kuhn is listed as Gunsmith and importer and retailer , There is Provenance with this Shotgun the small oval in the stock is marked presented to John B Leifried by George Heft , both men are Civil War Vets they were active Masons in Philadelphia John the owner of the Shotgun Died in 1912 the Leifried Family are still in business in PA.....<<

Anyone know of this >>Dan Morgon<< of VT? I do wonder what effort he contributed to the tubes?

Just curious Raimey. Was Kuhn known to have brought in any other guns from Lindner?
