You might tell us what brand it is, for starters.

Sounds like its gonna be a tough one but pictures are essential. :? Take the stock off and look on the underside of the receiver and barrel. Photo ANY marks. Chances are we'll never find the exact maker, if you are correct about pre-war Belgium, :roll: but it'll be fun look'n. :wink:

If it's any help to you, about 2 years ago I sold a 16 gauge bolt action shotgun that was made in the 1950's. It was a J. C. Higgins with a fixed modified choke. It worked perfectly although it had a couple of small rust spots on the barrel. I got $95 for it.

EDIT: Oh, another difference was that my gun was not a single shot. It had a tubular magazine that held about 4 or 5 rounds.

The pic of the full gun isn't clear enough to tell what it is. The pic of the stamping looks like some bubba took a set of letter dies and whacked the barrel. Is that the only mark on the barrel?
