Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.

Jamar & Soleil

This superb weapon is curiously marked "J.H. Jamar & Sun" on a side of the breech and "J.H. Jamar-Smits" of the other.

The hook in front of the trigger guard makes it possible to operate the mechanism which opens the access to the chamber, allowing the loading. Locks and breech are engraved nets longitudinally.


Many thanks to the "ROYAL ARMY MUSEUM" Bruxelles and especially the section "ARMES PORTATIVE".
