Just picked this up from a friend and would like some info on it. It shows W.collath Frankfurt on the top, has No 5660 Cal 3 11/15 under the barrel. Also has dear, dog and bird engravings. I was told it is a 16 gauge, is that correct? Everything seems to work ok on it. Minor chips on the trigger guard. Thanks for any info provided.

Teschner - Collath sporting arms are quite novel with their eccentric breech. Georg Teschner(Johann Gottlieb Teschner) founded the concern in 1838(the same year Wilhelm Collath(Carl Wilhelm Theodor Collath) was born) and brought it thru the pinfire age I believe. Wilhelm Collath found gainful employment @ Teschner in 1859. And the story continues from there. There was a satellite stamping station or satellite proof facility @ the Teschner - Collath concern(later W. Collath & Sohne) & they had their own bore gauges:

0 = 10 gauge
1 = 12 gauge
3 = 14 gauge
4 = 16 gauge
5 = 18 gauge
6 = 20 gauge
7 = 24 gauge
8 = 28 gauge

I guess a novel way to peddle cartridges. The 11/15 is probably a 11.15mm X ? cartridge. Images might net you additional info.


Cheers,
