I saw this, can't afford any more guns for a while, and got it as fast as my fingers could pound the keyboard.

It is a Nagel & Menz, Hofbuchesenmaker to Kaiser and King Strasbourg U Baden drilling from 1887 and bears a noble's crest.

It's 16ga and possibly 10.5X47R, and the bores are mirror.

I did some research on the rifle round, if it is in fact the 10.5X47R. I can squeeze some brass out of 45-70 brass with a bit of work, I think.

What a beautiful gun. How do you select to fire the rifle barrel on a hammer gun?

The right hammer is hinged, so it can be positioned over the rifle striker to the left of the shotgun one on this particular design. It's a simple way to select the barrel, but it requires delicate machining.

Very interesting and pretty clever. The firing pin angle on the rifle barrel must be pretty acute.
