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

"D M"

Here’s a Belgian-made gun, one shot, of calibre 6 mm  flobert, boot system and barrel tilting by means of a lever to the left of the gun. This system may have been patented, but we haven’t found a trace of it.

There are DM letters on the gun, but they haven’t been identified.

The markings

ELG on star in oval: accepted, between 1846 and 1893;

T under star: countermark of a controller, between 1877 and 1968.

The weapon was therefore manufactured between 1877 and 1893.
