Hi, I've got my hand on a German 3 barrel gun with a few marking on it. I would certainly need help in identifying this gun. I will post all the pictures which may help the ID this gun.
Thanks in advance

Good pictures! We have an expert on all things Drilling. When he shows up, I am sure he can tell you all you want to know! He might want a couple more pictures.

Roux underlever action w/dolls head extension. Proofed in Suhl between 1893 and to perhaps shortly after WWI. 1912/13 proof law was in effect but not able to be implemented because of WWI. 118/35 is generally the 9,3 X 72R cartridge, still available. Cast chamber to be certain.
Crown over S, proof for shotgun barrels
Crown over W, proof for choked bores. How much choke you will have to measure
Crown over U, proof for thorough visual inspection
16 is bore and circled 16 is 2 1/2 in. chambers. Shells still available.
Obviously Nitro proofed
Krupp Fluid Steel
Assume "Frandsen" to be retailer, not necessarily maker.
Proofed with apparently 2 grams of Schultz Pulver, (powder)
Can't decide bullet but should be around 200 gr. and it was lead.
Very typical drilling of the era, made for the trade.

Wow, this great. What about the inscription ''Veile'' the the leftt side of the barrel, what is that?
What do you think it's worth ?
Greatly appreciated. Thanks

Marble is correct, I missed that.

sooner, after 15 years of seriously playing with German firearms and their history, most of it is at instant recall. However, I do have a fairly decent library as well and, evidently I should use it more often.

It's a drilling, that IS the model. They neither had nor used models names or numbers on firearms made "for the trade." As far as who actually made it, that might never be known.
