    I need more information and approximate value on an antique shotgun. This is a Dreyse Sommerda Needle gun shotgun, 16 bore. It is a single bore gun. Most are double barrel sxs.
    I know these are worth a lot. The single barrel is what's getting me, since I have never found a single barrel one. Please see some pics. Any information is greatly appreciated.

    What are the odds... you ended up with this guys gun??????????
    It looks like your sr #2082.

    "It's a single shot needle fire, manufactured appr. 1870.
    Franz von Dreyse (1822 - 1894) was the son of Nicolaus von Dreyse (!787 - 1867), the inventor of the needle-fire rifle. His factory was in Soemmerda near Erfurt, Thuringia, Germany. Now it's a museum."

    That's a double barrel. This one is a single barrel.

    I have also searches the web. I know about the Dreyse firearms and their history. This is specifically about this single barrel shotgun.

    Also this one breaks up, and the barrel doesn't turn out to the side like the double barrel guns do. image-2019-12-24-00-21-58.jpg

    You might try and email the pictures to Collectors Firearms in Houston. They may be able to give you some info?
