This is a beautifully restored example of an Otto Geyger and Company of Berlin, pre war deluxe Mauser. It is perfect throughout including bore. Geyger was known as "Purdey of Germany" due to the quality of their firearms. Much can be obtained from the internet on the Company.

I cannot find out much information on the maker of this combination gun. The information I have is based on what I was told by Oskar Kob from whom I obtained the piece, Oskar tells me that it was made in the 1930's, which would make it quite rare given that it is a hammer gun, must have been a special order since that was not a typical design at the point in history. The gun was restored by Oskar and the case was built by myself and fitted to the gun. It is in 16 gauge over 32-40 and is a dream to shoot. Overall a very light, well balanced nice handling gun.
