    ... what brand is that? My Dad's uncle brought this shotgun home from the war and we've had it ever since but the only manufacturer's mark I see is a wolf on engraved in the metal on the side. That and the serial # (29,xxx) are the only marks.

    Can anyone tell me more about the shotgun?

    Thanks,

    jcrobbins,
    Welcome to the forum. There's a couple knowledgable shotgun guys on board, so your gun should be identifiable. First - you're going to need to dismount the barrels from the receiver and look on the bottom of the barrel set as well as on the flat part of the receiver, where the barrels rest - called the "water table." If (and most likely it is) the gun is of European manufacture - there will be an array of markings and numbers in both places. Either take a couple in focus pics of those markings or fully describe those marks and numbers - as written. This info will help nail down the country of origin and possibly the manufacturer of the gun.

    I'll add that it will not be a military gun "taken from a German soldier" but more likely a sporting gun "liberated" from a German farmer..
