Hi Austin, you would need to contact an Arms dealer to know if these shot guns are still made and therefore still available to buy. There are a number of antique arms dealers who advertise on the internet, or try the Arms Collectors Guild http://www.armscollectorsguild.com/index.htm

Hi Santiago, it's very difficult to identify firearms without images or viewing them in person. We recommend that you contact an antiquarian firearms expert in your own country.
