Well, there's no chamber length in the proofs, so that means it's chambered for the short (2 1/2") shells, and you've been really lucky that it didn't let go on you. The proofs are the pre-WW2 pattern, so it's likely that this gun was finished in the white by Simson, and then completed by someone else; are there any marks on the bottom of the gun, in front of the trigger? Also, are there any marks on the water table (the flat part in front of the firing pins, on the main part of the shotgun)?
