Hey everyone! This is my first post and I am going to ask a lot from you! Awesome site!
I found this in a barn on my father's property that used to be a hunting lodge, this was in the attic rusted up.
We have shown it to gun shops and no one has any idea what this is. I researched the markings with this awesome resource.
From there I found that this was made in belgium AFTER 1893, it's a 12gauge, that's about all I got... I am not an experienced antiquer.
So I still have NO IDEA.
Here's a sequence showing the workings of the bolt.
If any more pictures are needed simply request them.
I am looking for information as to what kind of trigger that is, who made it, if I should get it restored and use it, also if it ever saw service in the military.
Thank you so much for your time.
