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

Here is a garden rifle of the type Remington Rolling Block model 4 in 9 mm Flobert. English butt.

The markings

peron: inspection, from 1853 to the present

ELG on star in crowned oval: accepted, between 1893 and 1968

ua spangled: countermark of a controller, between 1877 and 1968

1913: probably the year of manufacture

8.4: diameter in millimetres

FL 9 M C: the 9 mm Flobert short caliber.

According to the detailed research of a member of the team, it was a weapon derived from patents filed by Pierre Bischop, rue Derrière la Halle in Liège, then rue Large Voie 553 in Herstal. He filed about a dozen patents in the 1890-1895. On the ones I have seen, however, there is not the disassembly lever located on the right side of the housing. But that probably doesn’t mean anything.....
