Hi, I have a zabala hnos. s.r.c.- eibar 12ga 3" ic/mod 26"brls. It has kassnar imports-harrisburg-pa. on right brl. On the inside of the frame and brls there are many proof marks a 12-76 in a oval? a ZH in a shield (company logo?) a bp in a shield, a #2 with crossed rifles a 1000 Kgs and a Gmos stamped on it. the ser# is 1638XX. the gun is in 95% any info as to the value or markings would be helpful. Thank you

12-76 is the gauge (12) and the chamber length in mm (76mm = 3 inches)

ZH is, indeed, the manufacturer's code Zabala Hermanos (Zabala Brothers)

The 2 with the crossed rifles represents the final black powder proof of 8,818psi

BP in a shield represents the reinforced smokeless powder proof of 12,090 psi

The 1000kg represents a proof pressure of 1000 kilograms per square centimeter or about 12,193psi (Spanish proof for 3 inch shells)

There should be a number in front of the Gmos. That number represents the weight of the barrel in grams.

Eibar is the name of the town where the gun was built and proofed.
