I understand that the german proffs are actually west german which ment it was post war. I am not sure someone told me that once. My dad said he may have even got it when he was in europe, he visited often. I am hearing some conflicting stories from different family these days. The family is in agreement that "Karl" was the smith, but after that it is hard to piece everything together. It is a 16 ga. and it is marked for Nitro propellants. The lockwork is tight, and the stock was fitted for my great uncle who was about my size, so the shotgun fits me real well. I enjoy shooting it, and many friends are surprised when I hit the number of clays that I do considering the barrel length and one barrel is choke full. My great uncle had it made for duck/geese. He loved to hunt those water birds.
