This is a 12/65 G Boxlock Gun of belgian Maker Ad. Jansen, proofed in 1925. Probably made for a german customer, who’s family crest is engraved on the underside of the action. To me the engraving with Ducks on the left and Partridges on the right side seems to be very typical for Suhl. The trigger guard is made from horn and there is a foldable rear sight notch on the barrels. Barrel length is 70 cm, weight 2,8 Kg. The Gun swings very well and is a pleasure to carry and shoot. Recommended loads should not be more than 32 grams, because of recoil.

The typical Suhl engraving shows the close earlier connections between Liège and Suhl, a fact which seems to be rather unknown. And of course it was a “Win-Win” situation as we call it today. The above Gun is a nice example.
