If it says Made in Spain, then it is a Spanish gun. Sounds like they used Krupp's fluid steel barrels on it.

Pics, especially of the markings under the barrel and on the action flats will help

Krupp was a well-known German steel maker. Krupp made the barrel blanks, not the shotgun.

Fluss stahl means fluid steel, as opposed to twist or laminated steel barrels. It is not the model, name, or brand of your shotgun. We would call these forged steel.

If it says "Made in Spain" on the side of the barrels or receiver, the shotgun was made in Spain.

Greetings LAST CHANCE, and welcome aboard,

As oneounceload mentioned, please post some pics. Try to get the water table markings a accurately as possible. You might consider rubbing chalk in the marks for contrast.

Although some manufacturing identifiers have become synonymous with brand names (FN = government made and FIAT = Auto made in Turin, Italy come to mind), fluss stahl isn't on the list.

At one stage Spain had a reputation for producing cheap guns made of soft metal. I would assume that making, and marketing a gun using a well known German steel would go some way in overcoming buyer resistance.

Mundial is quite well known for producing quality knives; I do not know them as a gun manufacturer.
