NEED INFO: EDUARD KETTNER O/U 20ga "Pointer Light" Pics

We can't find another like it anywhere on the web. I've found several SxS's and a 12ga O/U and a few combos, but no 20 gauges...

What we have is an extremely rare, apparently, over-under on consignment.
It is marked with the maker noted above. It has a single trigger, with very detailed scroll work over the entire receiver. It's very light. The name, "Pointer Light" is etched on the bottom of the receiver. Very deep, rich bluing on the barrels like a Browning. Barrels are stamped, "20 GA" and "3 Inch".

Does anyone have a value range for this gun, or a place where I can find some more information on it?

We know it was made in Germany, and Kettner is the Cabelas of Europe.
Original MSRP or some catalog pics would be great.
Thanks in advance...

Proof marks will determine a LOT..........pull the barrels and take photos of those and post

WIll do.
I'll try to get them up tonight. We've had a few knowledgeable fellows "appraise" it. The estimates range from 1-3 thousand dollars...
We're not sure it is worth that much.

Kettners are worth about $2500 IIRC

NOT made in Germany.
The proof marks are Italian; it was apparently made there for the German dealer.
Made in 1994 (BD in box is the date code.)

I think the (BT) might be a maker's mark. I found one reference to a Zoli marked BT.

If ol Wild will back that $2500 post with a cash offer, let him have it.

Roger that!!!

Truth be told, we'd let it go for less than that. Not trying to get rich on one gun, just trying to make a living...

Here's a chart of proof marks:

My old eyes are having trouble with your photo - it's blurry to me.

See what matches and go from there


Good luck

Wild aint paying $2500, he doesnt pay retail, ever (unless he is desperate). Wild would stick $2199 on the tag if he paid $1200 for it, and take $1799.

Now that I see its a new Kettner (I thought it was an older one) retail is $1799.
