looking for info on old shotgun

Bought a cool old double barrel. Story goes that is was confiscated after WWI in occupied Germany. It says F.R.Hartstang Coln on the rib. It is 16 gauge with double triggers and lots of engraving on the silver receiver. Has very nice wood with a cheek piece. Any info would be appreciated.

Good pictures if you can please. A lot of those scripts on the rib were the maker of the steel, as a lot of the shotguns were assembled by a man who ordered the parts.

Re: looking for info on old shotgun

See the 10.7 mm thread started by Big Redneck on this forum. The best bet is to start your inquiry on the Double Guns forum

On the German & Austrian sub-forum. But be ready to add a ton more information about all the markings and numbers on the gun + pics.

See all the info that Big Redneck got on his thread there.
