  1. Hi, Can anybody tell what the initials GI under crown stand for on Belgian Shotguns? I believe it's the gunmaker's initials Mark, because they don't match with any official belgian proof marks. Thanks
  2. Thanks again, for sure is a pre 1931 one
  3. Thanks a lot for this! I will remove (next week)the wooden bad plate and check!
  4. Hi all, I recently purchased a manufrance robust Brevete and I am trying to find out the age and model of the Shotgun. It's the first of the robust family I' ve ever seen that intead of a number for model, it has a letter. Where on other models (barrel flats) writes No 7 , or No 6, etc the certain shotgun has a capital "A". Any help? Thanks!
  5. Thank you, Indeed, made my (marriage) Day 😁😁😁😁 Thank you! πŸ‘πŸ‘ 😁😁😁 I had two presents two unwrap! Thanks πŸ‘πŸ‘ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Good oneπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€£ 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
  6. Hi all! Just got married and got a bettinsoli special pernix for wedding present. I checked on the internet and can't find anything about this model! It looks similar to x7 lite, but not exactly the same! Does anybody know something regarding the SPECIAL PERNIX (DE LUXE) model? The shotgun is a game gun, multichocke, 3" chambers, 26" barrels with straight grip stock, oiled finish, (AA+ grade walnut). Serial number 199577, year of manufacture 2005 (BZ in rectangle mark).
  7. On the rib "Linsley Bros Lands Lane Leeds"
  8. Probably, this is the case (W&S), commissioned to Linsley Bros. It's good though I found a name on it. I ll have to re-registrate it now, since on the shotgun papers for the moment is written as "unknown brand"
  9. On my attempt to restore the gun, I find out that is a Linsley Brothers made! Thanks again for the answers!
  10. Thank you for all the information! Indeed it's very interesting! I would love to see a PHD grade work on the subject!!! Such an interesting and full of history discipline!!!
  11. Well, I love antiques in general, so I ve converted two of those into gun cabinets Thank you for your answer! I really enjoy digging into history of shotguns! Specially if it's one of my own shotguns. I may never come into a solid conclusion, but I will find some peripheral history...
  12. Well, up to now, I am gothering all the look-alike shotguns and then one by one I go through forensic style research 😊. Thanks once again πŸ‘
  13. Probably you are right...still, I ll give it a try!!! One way or another, the gun will curry it's own history and maybe I can only imagine it while sitting in my living room and admiring it lying in the gun cabinet
  14. Indeed, it didn't so far 😭
  15. From a quick look of Thomas Wild and Midland shotguns, couldn't find a similar one. My shotgun's SN is a 3 digit one (411), which it's kind of weird, since usually the SN is a 5 digit number. Still looking on it, thanks again for all the info! I own now three antique shotguns and I am looking forward to build a nice 10-15 old shotguns collection! But since I love shotguns and history, I' d love to learn all the possible information for each one of my shotguns! I' m continuing the research for my little Birmingham treasure. I ll let you know if I find something solid! Thanks again πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
