    Mark, welcome to the club. Is that Josef Just drilling really a 264 Win Mag? That's quite a combination. I'm near Allentown, PA. if you are close maybe we could meet sometime. Looking forward to seeing your pictures and further postings. Thanks, Diz

    Mark,

    I am very surprised that it is and one of my favorite calibers too. I took a 264 to Africa for the light to medium stuff and it was superb. I travel out to Cabelas fairly often and hopefully we can meet sometime. I'll try to PM you with my number.

    Thanks, Diz

    Josef Just Drilling 20GA X 264 WM

    Hello, Finally have some pictures of the Josef Just Drilling 20Gag X 264 WM. I'm missing image of maker name on rib of shot gun barrels. I did contact the company in Germany and the only information they would give was that it was made in 1964, thus the -64 after the serial #. What length chambers does this have? I see 76MM? Please see attached photos.

    Thanks,

    Mark Dreisbach

    I seem to have forgotten that this was a 20 gauge drilling. It must be pretty fast handling and sure looks very, very nice. I will leave the deciphering of the marks to our more learned members but 76mm is just shy of 3 inches. So it may be a 3 inch chambered 20 gauge with a 264 Mag under. What a combination! Thanks for the photos. Diz

    German Guns 749,
    The Drilling is Austrian rather than German. The 20/76 is the designation for 20 ga 3"mag.A combination of calibers like this would likely have been made per request of an American customer.
