    Just left a gun show and found a single shot 9mm rim fire smooth bore shotgun. Dude wanted 650 for it and was growing in 250 cartridges. Rolling block type action. Owner said that it was German made. Checkering was very fine lined. Didn't buy it and was wondering if any of y'all know about this gun. Sorry no pics.

    Sounds like a Type 3 "Remington" Flobert garden gun.
    Sounds like a lot of money for the type. That is about $130 in ammo.

    Fiocchi makes the ammo. Midway sells it at <$30 a box when they have it in stock.

    Most of the Folbert type garden guns, are Belgian made. Most likely the action/mechanism, is of the Warnant type rather than the rolling block.

    Unless it was a original Remington? A original Remington might be worth that kind of money, if it was factory original? In VG or better condition.

    He said rolling block and I have old ads for 9mm "rolling block" Floberts as well as Warnant.
    Do you think he did not know what he was looking at?
