    I got this in a trade today, i have had my eye on it for some time. It is made in belgium i think in the 1920s. the bore is .410 under the barrel is 10.6. i don't know who made this little gun there is llh under the wood this was a belgium barrel maker. there are liege proof marks with the FG.

    one mark on the side looks like a fly i have seen it before on guns cant remember what it means. the barrel is 1/3 hex and 2/3 round its 32 inch long has a bead sight. i was thinking this was a boys gun for its size but the l.o.p is 14 inches.

    There is a nicely done engraving on the stock looks like a buffalo with green eyes The barrel is damascus. i looked under the butt plate like all old guns i get and i found a small paper that reads M..J.S. nov 1922. u guys got any info on this little guy. its in good shape it maybe fun to fire it or make it shoot some quarks.

    looks like it could be whats sometimes called a monkey gun. they were made in belgium and sold to south american native tribes to hunt, they used these for birds to use the feathers and small game and monkeys.
