Thread: J Saive 16 bore hammer gun

    J Saive 16 bore hammer gun

    I have to move overseas for work and I need to sell/gift some of my shotguns. This one is my Dad's old gun. He still shoots it every now and then but it's the only one that I can't find any information on. I am specifically looking at the market value of a well used example. I'll post some photos later on today. If there's no knowledge on here then i'll try gun trader or the like.

    Here are the photos of the gun. It's a 23 (my appologies it's 25.5) inch barrel side by side and the barrel has J.Saive engraved on it as well as a "JS" stamp between the barrels under the fore-end. As I mentioned, if there are any Belgian gun enthusiasts out there or any FN-ofiles, I'd be very grateful for any information about the gun as all the usual internet sources have turned up nothing at all.

    I know nothing of the maker, are you sure its 23inch barrels or was that a misprint, if correct it needs to go on a firearm certificate not a shotgun certificate.

    Probably my mistake in the measurement. Where do you measure the length of the barrel from on a shotgun? The total barrel length from the break is 25.7".

    I've done enough reading that my previous post doesn't need answering. The Barrels are 25.5".

    Please dont be offended but it is a poor quality typical Belgian gun. I have seen 12bore versions go through dealers hands for little as 5! The cross bolt and engraving and screw finish are typical of this type of gun . Most were sold in hardware shops and stamped with their name.

    I'd say if it's worth any sentimental value then keep it as financially it is worth not a lot.

    I didn't expect it to be worth much if anything. Just wanted info that I couldn't find elsewhere. Can't allow sentiment to get in the way as I need to move on. No offence felt.
