Well, I held off 42 days before buying a gun this year.

This double rifle was originally in flintlock, converted to percussion. Appears to be .58 caliber, possibly German.

Let's try this again, as a courtesy:

Do you see at the top, where it says "PICS AND LINKS ONLY"?

Your post must contain a pic, or the mods will come around and remove it.

Additionally, you're wrong. Venezuela had nothing to do with this Finnish gun, that was made in 1952, and I have no idea how you came up with that.

This is a Brazilian Garrucha from my collection:

I know its been a long time, but Im not wrong. Because I was speaking about my pistol, not about your Finnish rifle. You asked (or rather inquired) if my pistol was early production, to which I replied "Per serial, made in the seventies, ex-Venezuelan army". obviously speaking about the Hi Power.

condescending tone was not neccesary :wink:

Here's photos of my new drilling. 16 gauge over 9.3X72R. Better photos later.

EDIT: No, not a Luftwaffe drilling, and as you may see in the photos (I didn't before then) it seems to have some cracks in the receiver. The dealer, being a gentleman, let me trade for another, differently cool drilling with 8X58R under 16 gauge.

Since we found cracks on the first drilling, I swapped out for this one.

16 gauge over 7.7X58R, which is neither the Danish nor Sauer variant. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! Finding a caliber _I've_ never heard of.
