DRGM = "Deutsches Reichs Gebrauchsmuster", in short a registered trademark. I'll guess the trademark has to do with the engraving design, but I could be wrong.

Short version: you can put modern 2 3/4 shells through a 2 1/2 inch chambered gun, but there are better ideas. This, because:

Been living out of a suitcase since Memorial Day weekend, so not much shooting. What shooting I did get in was with an Army buddy at his home club. He lives conveniently close to where I'm working. ...

I'm working in Michigan for a while and went into a Meijer this morning to do my shopping. They had 16 ga Winchester Super X game loads on the shelf for 9.99 a box.

If the recoil from shot #1 is jarring your safety back "on" you've got a problem that requires a gunsmith's attention. There is no alternative. This is an unintended discharge waiting to h ...

Simpson's usually has bundles of 16 ga/30 inch Belgian hammerguns and for short money, too.
All told, mine cost me $275, and that included a tad of gunsmithing (raise a couple dents, thorough takedow ...

Interesting gun for sure. Wondering what the purpose is of the little tab on top of the sideplates that fit into a recess in the receiver?

Germans did not make a lot of sidelocks, period. Austrians made a few.

Was in the local-to-me Cabelas' looking at the guns. On the used rack they had what I thought was a sweet 16. Turned out, it was to the basic A5/Sweet design but it was stamped "Rheinmetall&quo ...

Welcome to the wonderful world of drillings.

Plenty of birds in Maine.
Our #1 nuisance animal for complaints are turkeys, edging out bears gorging on birdfeeders and trash in the spring.
