    Was given this set of SxS barrels, and have not been able to give it a name yet. I know the oval proof mark designates the city of Liege. Can anyone ID the manufacturer? Anybody want it? Thanks.

    It's Belgian. Probably made for export to USA; as it has regular Belgian proofs, but also, the word "Belgium" stamped on it in English.
    There were many Belgian side by sides imported, which were inexpensive compared to High-Grade English and American Shotguns.

    $5 would buy a decent, working side by side. One farmer grandpa could afford.
