The actual value of a gun can change drastically depending on the condition, proven provenance, rarity, and the current market demand. Demand is constantly changing, which means the value is constantly changing. The condition would include the finish and mechanical wear. Even in rough condition, a gun with proven provenance could still be quite valuable. Modern Gun Values or the Gun Trader's Guide are both good sources of information. Current editions of these books can be picked up at common places such as Wal-Mart or Barnes and Nobles.

There have been several variations of Janssen shotguns. Large gunmaking family in Belgium. J JANSSEN shotguns are typical hardware-store imports that top out at $250, but JANSSEN FRES (for example) can bring several times that.
It all depends on condition. $150-300
Made in Belgium by Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin & Co. c. 1884-1905
i have a shotgun double barrel, i think it maybe 12gauge with Richard or righard on the plate below the barrel, the butt of the shotgun has browning automatic on it, which made me think it was a browning, but it is not...can you help me id the shotgun and what the value is
Manufactured in Belgium by Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin & Co.
Depends on the condition.
J Janssen was one of the partners of Simonis, Janssen and Dumoulin which was a Belgian gunmaking firm that produced shotguns for the American hardware store trade from the late 1880's through about 1910. Value is for decoration, and rarely exceeds $250.
Janssen Fils & Co if it has Belgian proofmarks or Crescent Fire Arms Co if it does not.
Janssen Fils & Co was making guns from 1895 to 1965. Since yours is marked in English (Sons instead of Fils) it was made for export to the US and the mass import of shotguns from Belgium was cut off by WWI and never resumed after, so it's a pretty good bet that yours was made between 1895 and 1914. Value will be determined by how nice it looks over the mantle, usually $150 to $250.
Probably about $125-$150 as a mantle decoration.
i will purchase it from you...J P Lovell was my great great great grandad
I would start my search at Numrich gun parts corp.They may be found on the web.I would also check at E-bay,or gunbroker.com under gun parts.
There is no need to start a double barrel. A double barrel shotgun needs to be loaded like you would a single barrel shotgun only using two bullets. You then cock the gun, aim, and fire.
Simonis, Janssen & Dumoulin, c. 1884-1905, in Belgium
