That is BEAUTIFUL! I love the look of the old top-break models. If you get a chance to take more pictures, would you mind snapping one of it in the open/loading position?

Very nice Reinhard. I don't remember if this was asked before, but do you shoot any of your collection?

thanks, I would love to use them,but legaly its not allowed, there are many guns free for sale ,but only for collectors,when you want to fire it you need a permit when you pop of a few shots with one of your collection guns,you risk to loose the whole collection, and since I am such a law abiding citizen ,I will keep myself to the law

At least they don't need to be deactivated like they do across the channel.

I had an S&W break top until about 4 months ago. It just hung on the wall in my office. Orig Gutta Percha grips, orig bluing, and pristine. Sold it to a friend who "had to have it".

Mine had the exposed hammer and no grip safety. Bore was perfect.

deactived guns are scrap metal ,it's like a vintage car with the pistons welded solid
they are of no use ,,,,its not only across the channel Rock,also holland ,germany,france ,and italy has a total ban on guns,
sometimes the dutchies cross the border to belgium to buy some guns here
if customs or police find any gun its by, by car ,and jailtime is surtain
I surtenly belief that your friend wanted that gun,I have the same problem when I see one I want to have it

Germany is tough but I have a friend there who owns a lot of cool guns (for now). Can the Dutchies buy them easily in Belgium?
