    I found an old shotgun in an old building at my grandpas. It was lodged between studs on the wall. It was all rusted up and needed some tlc. My grandpa said he remembered shooting squirels with it when he was little. I took some pics. the only name on it I could find was T. Dumoulin & co. on the side. The top of the barrel says "Fine Damascus Belgium". the bottom of the barrel has some markings also pictured. Is there any info on this gun or maker out there?

    Here's a site with belgian proof marks like those under your barrel:

    Dumoulin in its various forms was a famous maker of good to excellent quality shotguns.

    It is a Henri Pieper action finished by Jannsen Fils of Liege...google near any Jannsen "Interchangeable" or "Machine made" and you will see a mirror image of your gun.

    This gun is in NO WAY related to any of the 10 or so Dumoulin makers.

    Hi robertchambers... thanks for the input .. if it is not a T. Dumoulin & co. why is it printed on the side of the plate just behind the hammer ? My pictures don't show it very well. Its well worn. Any thoughts would be great.
    Thanks, john
