I have a Merkel sidelock. It is a 12 ga. 2 3/4", made in the 60's. I believe it is either a model 47 sle or a model 147 sle. How do I tell which & what is the difference?

There was the basic modell nr. 8 with the full pipe sideframe reinforcement being a base modell with extractors then the 47E having ejectors & additional adornment(might have been a 47 but not sure). Then the 147E was an upgrade of the 47E; then the 147EL was an upgrade of the 147E. I believe in the early 1990s(1994??) the Modell Nr. 8 was discontinued?

Now the sidelock is a whole other animal as 147S, 147SL but I am not sure @ all 'bout the 147SLE, but that doesn't mean much.

Cheers,
