    Imman Meffert side by side

    Hello all, Hope your holidays where cheerful and the new year finds you happy and healthy. I've taken a few more pictures of the underside of the barrel with the HS and serial number. Can not find any proof marks. Still trying to determine who A. S. or S. A. might be. Any ideas? Sry can't upload more pics for some reason. Anyone interested can see more pics at this site:http://www.gunsite.co.za/forums/login.php

    Sanjojim,
    Since your nice BF doesn't have any proof marks, I opine that it was made prior to the 1891 Proof law,or at least between then and the early 1893 effective date of the law. If you can find a Crown V mark, this would mean it was in stock somewhere on the effective date. For a rifle of this obvious quality, I wouldn't be surprised to find out it was never in "stock" anywhere, rather "made to order"(speculation).

    Imman Meffert research

    I think you are right Mike, I just wish there was a record of sales during that time frame which could track this to it's original owner. The stock carvings and the initials A.S. or S.A. you would think could help if there are no sn records available. Trying to post some more pictures. Always have a difficult time with this. Might be because I have a apple MAC. Just guessing.

    If you travel to Germany, the Waffen Museum is well worth the visit even if you have to go out of your way to get there. Suhl is due North of Nürnberg where the annual IWA hunting show is held.

    I have attached a few pics from the museum to give you an idea of what they have there.

    For my opinion the museum in Zella Mehlis is also worth to see.

    Which museum is in Zella Mehlis? I have been to the museums in Suhl, Coburg, Koblenz, and Sömmerda.

    Ah yes, now I remember. The museum pass was for both museums, but I was on a tight schedule and had to move on. Will visit again. Thanks.
