    Hi Bob-

    I just sent you an email. Please let me know if it doesn’t make it to you.

    HI Gregg,

    I have just inherited a 10 gauge Neumann Bros side by side. The same gun is shown on this good gun alert http://www.dogsanddoubles.com/2013/12/good-gun-alert-a-10-gauge-3-12-neumann-sxs-shotgun/ , mine is not in as good shape as the one shown in this post. I am hoping to use the gun for waterfowl, do you have any suggestions on shells or where to find reloading materials? I assume I can;t shoot steel through it.


  3. Gregg says:

    Hi Andy-

    I wouldn’t put steel through your gun, and I would stay away from most modern 10g ammo.

    I suggest using Bismith of some other kind of non tox. RST and RIO ammo both offer non-tox substitutes, and they may make them in 10g. Google them to find out. Gamebore may offer something, too.

    The important thing to keep in mind is that your gun was not may to shoot high-pressure shells (like the kinds guys shoot through 10g auto loaders). So stick to ammo designed to be shot in older doubles.

    Good luck with your gun — oh, and I would have a qualified gunsmith look it over before I did anything with it.

    Just got a Lefever double in the store was interested if you can give me some insight and possible value….
    Its a higher grade side-plate gun, serial No. 30760
    Nicely engraved 12 bore with two sets of correctly serial numbered damascus barrels.
    Period leather hard case and extra barrel case.
    Checkering is worn as is the “dog’s head” medallion on the forearm.
    Wood is nicely figured, original finish, no apparent cracks or chips.
    Tried attaching a couple pics taken with phone but they wouldn’t take…..if you need or want pics, you can email or give me a call.
    Hope Lexi is adapting to Sky’s antics which only a puppy can bring…my Briar (the English Cocker) is still the little scoundrel that she was born..and making Brutus the Golden’s life hell….

    I inherited a John Krider percussion shotgun, looks like 12 gauge, with a 28″ barrel, and a “Cooper” percussion shotgun, 30″ barrel. The Cooper doesn’t say anything else except “Fine laminated steel”. I tried sending photos to you, but they didn’t go.
    My great-grandfather was a blacksmith to the Ojibwa in Crow Wing, MN starting in 1849, and seemed to eat a lot of game. The shotguns are in fair condition.
    If you can give me a better address, I can send plenty of photos so you can take a look.
    Any advice you can give on how to restore them (I won’t do it myself) will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for the great blog.

    await serial number & if possible images of the lockplates of the 20g woodward

  8. Gregg,
    I just received the following 410 Merkel that I believe you had for sale back in 2013. Is there anything you can tell me about the provenance of that piece? Also do you still have that 28 bore Beretta S55? Please email me or you are welcome to leave me your phone # and I will give you a call.

    #14746, Gebruder Merkel, Suhl – Germany: A 410 Merkel from Suhl in Model 301E Made in 1929 on a Best 300 Series Action.

    Thank you for your interest in Champlin Firearms.

    Good shooting.

    Hi Gregg,
    Looking for a forearm for a Lefever double barrel shot gun, G Grade. Any ideas on who may be antique gun parts. Based on the serial number the shot gun is 1900-1901 circa.
