Janssen was a major gunmaker in Belgium c. 1880-1915, so probably made shotguns of every size from little 9mm garden guns up to 6 or even 4 gauge market guns. Almost all of those made for import to the US would have been 12 gauge double barrels with a few 16's, 20's, and 28's, but probably nothing smaller unless maybe a few single-shots in .44XL were ordered.

What is check gauges for 1999 Chevy Tahoe?

When one of your gauges shows something abnormal, your "check gauges" light will come one. Chances are you're low on motor oil. When you corner, the oil will slosh away from the pickup, causing your oil pressure gauge to read zero for a second. This in turn causes your check gauges light to come on, but by the time you look at your gauges, the oil has settled in the pan is your oil pressure is reading normal again. When you see the check gauges light and the gauges are reading fine, check your oil.
