This gun is a wand. A shade over 5-1/2 lbs with barrels a shade under 29".

This is a "Blitz" or trigger plate action gun. Makes for a slim, round bodied action, comfortable to carry.

Has cocking indicators, doll's head, double underlugs. Fine checkering, Greener safety, ivory bead, horn forend tip, swivels, nice little gun.

Apparently Emil Kerner was a retailer and most of the guns were made by Merkel or Sauer, this looks more of the Sauer style.

It's marked "Emil Kerner Suhl" on the left barrel and "St. Louis" on the right, perhaps they were thinking of importing to the US?

There is no proof date code, only a s/n, 1817 on most parts. Suhl started requiring proof date codes in 1923.

The original LOP at 13-5/8" was too short for me so I had a pad added (without cutting the stock) to bring it out to 14-5/8". I am including the original buttplate and screws which can be reinstalled if desired (see last picture, not screwed down yet).

Nice gun for a young shooter with plate and add pad or wood extension later on.

C&R Eligible.

$1850 plus S&I.
