Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 4766


I have what I think is a french double barrel shotgun, with a double trigger. The barrel has stetienne engraved followed by 17.0 on left side and stetienne 17.1 on right and on the flat part where the stock attaches, PT with either a crown or a W above it. There is also a small round stamp with MM in the middle and lettering around the inside of the circle - possibly regieie or fe - unclear and also the number 65 and 376 and acier superieur. Do you know anything about this shotgun or where I may be able to research it? thank you.


All I can determine from what you tell me is that your gun was made in St Etienne France and has a barrel of "Superior Steel". I cannot determine the maker.
