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

Auguste Schriever & C°
SCHRIEVER Auguste was a manufacturer of weapons of war and registered to the proofhouse of Liege of 1877 to 1885.
In 1885, it changes its corporate name into SCHRIEVER Auguste & C° and remains registers with the proofhouse until 1901.
It resides successively street of the Twenty-two, 11, street Nysten 44 and finally street Chéri, 26 in LIEGE.
It will also reside in Düsseldorf in 1896.
From 1883 to 1896, it deposits four Belgian patents for:
- A system of transformation of Chassepot rifles into rifles for shorting the pressed metal cartridge, etc
- The transformation of the barrels of great calibre into coats for the barrels of small calibre.
- The transformation of rifles with bolt such as Mauser, Grasd, Beaumont, Chassepot etc out of repeating rifles.
- A sector of pointing for fire mouth.
You to now say in which circumstances SCHRIEVER manufactured or transformed these gewer 88 Komission, I am unaware of it. It had seems it close contacts with Germany where it found doubtless its work.
As for your question about word RUST struck the weapon, mystery (note: I am not a linguist) RUST does not exist in Flemish, rust says ROEST in this language.
On the other hand rust wants to say English rust. In German, it is ROST.
