Does the shotgun come apart? Once apart can you remove the forearm?

Sometimes there a stamps hidden under the furniture.

OK, Here is what I found. Bison is a name used by the German company, Herbert Schmidt, who made shotguns ealy in the 20th century. See links.

2)choke usually is the same as modern extra-full chokes. I heard if it didn't have choke anywhere on the barrel, it could be a cylinder to a imp/cylinder. Hope this helps.
