I am trying to locate my Dad's Bohler and Stahl Over/Under 12 gauge that was made in Suhl, West Germany.

He came home from WW 2 with this shotgun and it was sold by a pawn shop in Waco, Texas about 1979 or 80.

The only things I can remember about it are that it had a dark wood stock and forearm and it was stamped Bohler and Stahl on the upper barrel and also stamped "Suhl, West Germany" also on the barrel.

I do not remember any other stamps on the shotgun.

It had fine engraving on the receiver and once had an ivory sight on top of the upper barrel.

I have been looking for this shotgun for 37 years to no avail.

If there is anyone out there who might have an idea on where to look for it, please let me know.

Thanks very much.

First, Suhl was in East Germany. I've viewed hundreds that are similar. Boehler Stahl tubes would have been sourced from Austria or bar stock was sourced and tubes were drawn.

Cheers,
