Raise your hands if you think this Immanuel Meffert shotgun is an Anson & Deeley boxlock.
That’s what I thought at first. But as I looked closer, a few things kept telling me I was wrong: the single pin in the side of the action, the wide top-strap under the toplever, the cocked indicators on this top strap, and the position of the triggers (they look too far back for a boxlock). Very odd, and not very A & D boxlock.
After I poked around online a bit, I figured out what was going on: This shotguns is made on a “Treff” Action – a unique design built by Immanuel Meffert from 1912 to 1929. On a Treff, the lockwork is mounted on the topstrap. That’s why it’s so wide. The barrels cock this lockwork when they drop, and that pin in the side of the action secured the cocking rod.
