    I have an old shotgun. I am trying to figure out where it was made and how old it is. It shoots 16 gauge 2 3/4 shells just fine. It have a brand name of "Helice Prefer" It is a side x side double barrel shotgun. On the bottom of each barrel it is stamped 17.0 and Stetienne. Can anyone help me Identifiy it?
    Thanks

    Hi there

    It is a french made pidgeon gun I think from the 1930s but would need photos to confirm this. If it is a certain model could be valuable, does it have damascus barrels.
