Actually Bladeswitcher was the 1st to hint @ Japanese origin.

Is there any engraving or cross-hatching @ the muzzle?

You wouldn't happen to reside close to Bozeman or Livingston, would you? I know a few knowledgeable folks in that area.

Call it what you may..... But I believe you spend some time over @ Doublegunshop where from time to time there's a wealth of knowledge.

Look just over 1/2 way below @ the Roma6:

So I wonder if it is / was a Roma6 platform?

I have seen several of those in Italy & they fake the sidelock well.

To the earlier question-there are no markings on the butt of the stock.



And no brand name or importer markings anywhere on the barrels?


As mentioned earlier, marked for steel shot implies modern manufacture. IIRC, post 1968 commercial import requires both maker and country ID plus importer name and city to be stamped on the gun. The lack of this information points to a personal import by someone returning to the States from Japan (military, diplomatic or business?). Somewhere deep in the bowels of the BATFE archives is a Form 6 listing a generic description, maker, s/n and owner or dealer that handled this as an personal/occasional import.

Actually, the Roma 6 has a dummy pin located about where a tumbler axle would normally be but, the pin appears a bit smaller in diameter and lacks the typical line or arrow to indicate whether cocked or not. Its still a good fake.

About three hours from each and don't suspect I'll be making it down there anytime soon, unfortunately.
