German Shul 16 Ga Shotgun 1916 Krupp Fluss Stahl

This fine shotgun was made in the Shul gun-making region of Germany in 1916 and has Krupp Fluss Stahl (fluid steel) nitro proofed barrels. It is probably a “guild gun” made for the trade though the retailer’s panel on the rib is blank. It was not a low end offering as evidenced by the scalloped frame, cocking indicators, carved and engraved fences with side clips, Greener safety, Deeley forend release and horn trigger guard, grip cap and butt plate. The 29” barrels with brass bead have 2-9/16” chambers and MOD & FULL chokes (fixed). The action has double under lugs and cross bolt rib extension lock-up while the stocks are typical of the place and time of manufacture with cheek piece and fine checkering and sling swivels are attached to butt and barrels. It retains about 80% blue with most of the loss at the carry point while the bores are mostly mirror smooth and shiny with a little shallow pitting near the breech end that looks like it may have been polished out at one time. There are several light to moderate dents in both tubes and they don’t appear to have been cut though the right tube is separating at the muzzle (see photo). The stocks are sound with a screw repair at the wrist, scattered light to heavy handling marks and the forend tip inlay is absent (see photos). With the forend removed there’s just the slightest looseness which disappears with the forend in place. Triggers, cocking indicators and safety work as they should. There’s slight bug damage to the guard and butt plate. A nice example of the early 20th century product from the legendary Shul region of Germany and might have come here as a post war bring-back.
