Looking for help identifying the maker of this French Gun I purchased. Any additional info would be great. It’s a 20ga, around 60-65yeras old.

Photos posted slightly enhanced.
-- 20 bore triple proofed.
-- Barrels are by Heurtier.
-- Barrel boring by Pierre Terrier?
-- "Magnum" "Aerne"? on the top lever? Aerne is a French Sur-name - can't associate it with a Saint Etienne gun maker.
-- Nice case coloring.
Anything on the water table? - no photos. Also any retailer's name on the plate in front of the trigger guard?

Might be what folks call a French guild gun when they can't figure out who the maker is. I've got a couple of those...Geo

Qui était cet homme masqué?

Juste comme ça, nous savons qui a fabriqué l'arme, et nous avons une bonne explication de la chose 3 » 20. Belle. Merci, Fab!


Best,

Ted

There isn’t much on the water table. Nothing on trigger. Quality seems great, really like it and will shoot it soon.

What is this guild gun you speak I have never figured out how this guild system worked did each outworker contribute labour and hoped to be paid or was there a business man who financed it?did a guild finance it who did the guild sell through?this supposed system would be in conflict with mfg.and retailers who used the out worker system.im up for any comment or explanation.
