    found at flea market - sold as 28 gauge but i soon learned that it is a 24 gauge - has no makers markings at all - has many pre 1939 german proof marks - crown over N , crown over B , + crown over U - also has # 24 in a circle + a proof date atamp of oct. 1932 - semm to be much better quality than average cheap single barrel - no clue as to maker , use , or value - found three different suppliers of 24 guage brass but all are back ordered for 2-3 months - also could use some loading data - any info would be appreciated - embarassed to say how little i paid for it - thanks in advance -

    Never be embarassed to say you got a deal. My first pistol was a flea market deal and I loved it.

    Looks to be an EXTRAORDINARY piece. Nice find...! I just love those old single barrel SGs.

    I've been a member only about 11 years. I'm gonna try to make it Sunday - today the titanium in my leg isn't accomodating...must be the weather.
