I’ll introduce myself, with a real brain bender. I have found out so far, it is a Saxon Rural Police weapon. I call it a carbine for it’s length. It is actually a Cape Gun. Calibers are 15MM x 28 gage pinfire. 20" barrels, with sliding rod bayonet! The choice of 15MM makes me think they issued a revolver in same caliber? Anyone know of such a German revolver? And a longshot… anyone got a right hand hammer?
Can I see a picture of the breech opening?
The 15mm cartridges were typically rimless.
Could be wrong about 15mm. Bore measures 1/2".
Yeah I think just two different shotshell gauges. If the one side is rifled it may’ve used a slug:
Also, looks like it may also have some type of centerfire conversion?
The rifled chamber is very short. Half the length of the smoothbore. The additional holes in the reciever, are I believe for a safety device. It hung on a chain from the ring on the reciever. Ring is not for a saddle ring. Wouldn’t hold the weight of the gun.
