  1. Thanks Bob, .....and no they are from different Owners. You can't believe some of the guns the people get out of their attics up here in north west Jersey
  2. Here is another odd one that came in the other day...The only marking I saw was some british and belgian proofs, and down the center top of the barrel is marked ' zulu". see photo link below http://s1256.photobucket.com/albums/ii499/TRAKS1/ZULU%20BARREL%20MARKING/ Thank You for any info...... Kurt
  3. see attached info on this odd gun.....before I dove into the proofmarks I figured I would post it here for some opinions. I do not know if this was converted from cap and ball, because according to some books some were converted. See the link below for pictures http://s1256.photobucket.com/albums/ii499/TRAKS1/ZULU%20BARREL%20MARKING/
  4. Here I go again.....This guy brought in for me to look at, the barel is mared ZULU, There are some English and Belgium proofmarks on this gun. Didn't get into the proofmark research yet, was hoping someone may have seen this gun before....Centerfire, exposed hammer. It may have been one that was converted to shoot shootgun, some reading mentions they revised some ball guns to shoot cartridge guns at some point. See attached Photos in the link below....... http://s1256.photobucket.com/albums/ii499/TRAKS1/ZULU%20BARREL%20MARKING/
  5. I JUST LEAVE IT ON FOR EASE OF READING THE TYPING...SORRY IF THAT BOTHERS YOU........
  6. I HAVE THIS BRAS BREECH, STEEL FALLING BLOCK, RIM-FIRE RIFLE, WITH AN OCTAGON BARREL. THE ONLY NUMBERS ON IT IS THE 2800 ON TOP OF BRASS BREECH. THE REAR SIGHT TANG HAS WHEN LAYING DOWN 100-US STAMPED ON IT, WHEN STANDING UP THE LOWER OPENING HAS 200-US STAMPED AT LOWERE PEEP SIGHT, THE TOP "V" HAS 500-US STAMPED UNDER IT. I HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO MAKE A CHAMBER CAST BUT THE BORE MEASURES .440, THE RIM IN THE BREECH WHERE THE CARTRIDGE WOULD SEAT IS .537. THE OCTAGON BARREL IS RIFLED, IT IS A RIM-FIRE, SINGLE SHOT. WHERE THE STELL FALLING BLOCK LOCKS INTO THE BRASS BREECH ON THE LOWER TANG THERE IS A STEEL PLATE OVERLAYED WITH BRASS. EVERYTHING WORKSON THIS GUN. THE OWNER HAD PAINTED IT WITH RUST-O-LEUM MANY YEARS AGO AD WANTED THE OCTAGON BARREL BLUED NOW.. I JUST WANTED TO KNOW WHAT GUN IT IS BEFORE I BLUE IT AND FIND OUT LATER THEY WERE ACTUALLY JUST PAINTED. I AM ATTACHING MY PHOTO-BUCKET LINK TO THE ALBLUM I SET UP WITH ALL THE PICTURES FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE. AGAIN ANY HELP AT ALL WOULD BE A GREAT HELP. http://s1256.photobucket.com/albums/ii499/TRAKS1/BRASS%20BREECH%20RIFLE/ THANK YOU KURT
  7. I HAVE A RIFLE WITH A OCTAGON BARREL, THAT IS A RIM FIRE. THE CHAMBE MEASURES .440 THE CARTRIDGE RIM IN THE RIFLE MEASURES .537. THE FALLING BLOCK IS STEEL, AND LOCKS INTO THE LOWER RIFLE TANG AND THE TANG WAS OVERLAYED WITH BRASS. THE ONLY MARKINGS ARE ON THE BREECH 2800 I ASSUME IS THE SERIAL NUMBER, AND ON THE REAR SIGHT TANG ...LAYING DOWN IT IS STAMPED 100-US, STAND IT UP AND IT IS STAMPED 200-US ON THE LOWER OPENING, AND 500-US ON THE TOP OF THE REAR SIGHT TANG. OTHER THAN THIS THEE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO MARKINGS, NAMES, NUMBERS, PROOFS OR ANYTHING ELSE TO IDENTIFY THIS OLD GUN. PLEASE HELP ME GET AN IDEA WHAT THE HELL THIS IS.... I AM PUTTING MY PHOTO-BUCKET ALBLUM LINK IN THE MESSAGE FOR YOUR HELP. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP AT ALL....THIS HAS ME COMPLETELY STUMPED. THANK YOU ALL.....KURT http://s1256.photobucket.com/albums/ii499/TRAKS1/BRASS%20BREECH%20RIFLE/
  8. THE ATTACHED LINK FROM PHOTO-BUCKET IS FOR A RIFLE A CUSTOMER BROUGHT IN TO HAVE THE RUST-O-LEUM PAINT TAKEN OFF AND RE-BLUED. THERE ARE "ZERO" PROOF-MARKS, NOT ONE NAME, NOTHING BUT THE SERIAL NUMBER I GUESS WHICH IS 2800. IT IS BRASS BREECH, WITH A IRON FALLING BLOCK, SINGLE SHOT, CHAMBER MEASURES .440, THE CARTIDGE RIM MEASURES .537. WHERE THE FALLING BLOCK LOCKS INTO THE LOWER TANG THE LOWER TANG IS STEEL, THAT WAS OVER-LAYED WITH BRASS TO CONTINUE THE BRASS BREECH AFFECT. THE BARREL IS OCTAGON, 28" ...FROM MEMORY. THE ONLY OTHER MARKINGS ARE ON THE REAR SIGHT FLIP UP SIGHT. LAYING DOWN THE SIGHT HAS A STAMP 100 - US, STAND THE REAR SIGHT UP AND THE LOWER OPENING IS STAMPED 200 - US, AND FINALLY THE TOP OF THE REAR SIGHT "V" IS STAMPED 500 - US. THIS IS IT FOR ANY MARKINGS ANYWHERE ON THIS RIFLE. THE GUN IS A RIM-FIRE ALSO, NOT A BLACK POWDER. DID I ADD TO THE PUZZLE THAT IT IS A RIM-FIRE. ANY HELP IN ANY DIRECTION WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANK YOU EVERYONE, NEED HELP BAD ON THIS ODD ONE..... KURT http://s1256.photobucket.com/albums/ii499/TRAKS1/BRASS%20BREECH%20RIFLE/
