Hello to all. I'm having a real problem trying to find out the name and year this shotgun was made. I have researched very good and can't find anything. Maybe someone has seen one or know about this gun. I'll give what info. I have. Under the barrels are the following: The letters "ELG in an oval with a star under the letters
On the right barrel is a V with a crown; also the letters 18.8 there is also some kind of mark that I have no idea what it is. On the left barrel is a R with a different crown over it. I'm aware of the Belgium marks, and the proff marks are the V&R (I think.) I havent removed the Butt plate as of yet. I'd like to know something before I do that. I don't have any info. other than that. It has lots of scroll work and engraving on it. I have plenty of pictures on "Photobucket." Here's how to get to the pictures: (http://photobucket.com/1800sBblgun
) When you get to the page click on "all albums" then scroll down to "Old Doublebarrel shotgun" Click on the picture and it will enlarge and then just click "Next" to advance through the pictures. That's all there is to it. While you are there you might want to look at my 1949 Chevy truck that I'm just about through with. Any info. will be appriciated. I put them on Photobucket because I put a good many pictures on there. Thanks for taking the time and maybe helping. If you want to email me feel free to do so at (Steven1oakridge@yahoo.com) It also has the letters stenciled on the underside of the right barrel "LCH." The gun is 50 1/4" long and the barrel is 34 1/2"
