Shot it today -- it does indeed have 2 3/4 chambers -- smith measured -- opened full $ fuller to Ic/Mod -- 2 rounds of low gun skeet -- a 22 & 23 . Pheasants better run cause if they fly they' gonna die !

I have a sickness - this 16ga affliction is unshakeable! A new one arrived by mail today. She's a ract syvilett German girl --a pre war Simson with 28" bls weighing in at just 6 lbs, cocking indicators, ejectors. The make date is 2/1926. not fancy wood but the frame is smaller than my 20ga JP Sauer. Throws to the shoulder as if it were part of me -- only negative (temporarily) is that its choked Full & full -- soon to be lt Skeet & lt mod.

Nice score grouser. Looks to be in very clean shape. Do you think it came blued from the factory or did someone refinish it to that?

I wondered about that -- looked at it carefully but no usual narks from buffing and the script is nice & sharp. Never saw a blued German gun of that era that wasn't cased colored.

Nice gun, Circa Ď26 Iíd gather it is short chambers. Not a deal breaker by any means. Iíd have no reservations about opening the chokes. My vote it is a refinish, but a good job. As you noted the engraving etc all look crisp.

Also itís a bit lighter than most simson 16ís so thatís a nice bonus in my book. Enjoy, Iím more than a bit jealous....

I have a local guy that does very good barrel work . as far as side by side fever, keep in mind that God put human eyes side by side --- not stacked on top of one another Smile

There are some sicknesses that we don't want cured. This be one of them.

Great gun! If you want to leave the chokes original you can always shoot polywad spreaders

Considering the symptoms, why ever would a body wish to be "shaken" of such an affliction? The answer surely doth elude me. I would say that your currency has been wisely transformed into something quite useful.
