Re: how to copy and print case labels?

That's fine, if you have an original label to copy. If you have not, there are some firms selling them on the internet. In the UK for example: peterdyson.co.uk A label is 20£ They didn't have my label (H.J. Hussey Ltd) so I ordered from: csmcspecials.com in the US. A label costs 18$ This US firm als...

Re: Price valuation on a Hussey shotgun

Dear Taylor, the gun really looks to be in excellent condition. A few more pics to enjoy would be nice. You seam to be good at posting photos, which is not easy on this forum. You ask a Swede living in Germany where to sell the gun in the UK! I am really not the man for that. I hope John or Tim will...

Re: Price valuation on a Hussey shotgun

Congratulations Taylor, to a very nice shotgun. You will find a lot of information on Hussey under : "H.J.Hussey serial numbers" on this forum from about a year ago. I have a H.J.Hussey Ltd Imperial ejector No. 14032 which I think was made around 1904, if this helps. The gun is lovely balanced and I...

Re: Capegun

Wow, that is really interesting to read.
Thank you for telling us the story.
A wild boar with a weight of 400 lbs is deadly opponent.

Re: Capegun

Thank you for the answers. I must contradict you John. I have seen all thees combinations buildt, perhaps with the exeption of the o/u shotgun with a rifle barrel at the side.

Re: Capegun

I learned something new today; that a "Büchsflinte" is called Capegun in English. Is the superposed model which I know as "Bockbüchsflinte" called the same?
Does anyone know where the word Capegun comes from?
When am asking I also would like to know where the expression Rook rifle comes from?

On the shooting range you see a lot of different ways to close a shotgun. From slamming it together with a bang, to very smooth procedures. In my youth my father taught me to close the gun with care and keep the top lever pulled to the side while closing. When the gun was closed I could let the topl...

Thank you for your effort, John.
For better understanding. I wrote:
