V.L. & A SPORTING GOODS, CHICAGO, ILL. Leather Leg O’Mutton Shotgun Case

It was retailed by Von Lengerke & Antoinne, or V L & A , of Chicago, IL. From 1891 and into the 1930s, V L & A retailed all sorts of firearms to all sort of people in the Chicago area.  In fact, two of the  Colt Thompson Machine Guns used in Al Capone’s infamous St. Valentine’s Day massacre were delivered to their notorious owners by Von Lengerke & Antoinne.

This second case was made by Brauer Bos of St. Louis, MO. This case looks pretty much new, so if may be better for a younger double like a 20g Browning Superposed and a small bore Winchester Model 21.

    I was just wondering if you had some older catalogs or books that you got some of the info from.

    Hi Joe-

    I have piles gun-related stuff – books, old catalogs, sales docs & other info. My wife is always telling me to get rid of it!

    Is there something you are looking for or something I can help you with?
