Where can you find information about a side by side exposed hammer double trigger shotgun with 30 inch barrels and Pritzlaff Quality stamped on the left side of the plate?

This marking appears (on guns I've seen) on Belgian hammer shotguns that were imported by the thousands from c.1880 through c.1910. These were sold by the various mail-order catalog stores throughout the midwest. Look for the ELG proofmark on the underside of the barrels. Value is typically $200 or less. It is suitable ONLY for a mantel decoration - please do not attempt to shoot it.
