just when I thought I was finished buying rifles a drilling popped up that I had to have!
16X16 over 9.3x72R, hammer gun made by Bohler Stahl with a box of Sellior &Bellot ammo .
Then a friend lucked into another 2 1/2booxes of RWS for me at a show this weekend!
I have shot pheasants and Sharptails and Ruffed grouse with the shotgun barrels but haven't had a chance to kill a deer with the 9.3 barrel yet. I have all of November to get that f]done though, and at 100 yards it is quite capable of that from what II have seen from my offhand targets.

Looks like a nice old gun, and it is good to see such good use being made of it.

FWIW "Böhler Stahl" on the barrels just means that they are made from steel by Böhler, a major steelmaker. It is not a reference to who made the gun itself. Böhler is still in business too.

Ah, like " Krupp" or " Solligen " stamps!
Jeepers tyete are no other markings except for proofs on who would have built it!
Guild gun of some sort?

Yes, that would be my guess. I wouldn't worry about it, just enjoy it for what it is.

What sort of chokes does it have? Tight and tighter, in typical German fashion?

A quick check with my plug gauge said Mod/full, but I have been meaning to mic them to find out. Not that it matters, both barrels have killed pheasants, sharptails and ruffed grouse on the fly, so I am happy!
Going to try and kill a white tail with it this week.
