With my limited knowledge I think the gun is the following: dated 1905- 1912, black powder, standard model due to basic engraving and case harden finish.

Not foot but I think Fiir or it’s a Fur with dots above it.

That means “not for ball” in the shotgun barrels.

108/40 is the gauge of the bore, an odd way of describing a rifle. I figure it is a quick check with a plug gauge. The measure is 8.87mm but I think it corresponds to a 9.3mm calibre. Maybe 9.3x72; a common drilling rifle barrel.

I just read that 113 could stand for Jan. 1913 and the larger G proof without a crown stands for black powder. Is that a correct understanding to the wise? If that is true any idea what this would range in price? The gun is in the 90 percent range, case hardening is great shape and bores are shinning and rifling is good. Just a tiny bit of movement in the in the action when locked. Wood I’d good also.

I found an caliber still used in Scandinavian for moose hunting of 10.8mm X 47Rmm. May be that’s it.
