Octagon barrel, single shot 22, "NS" on bottom by trigger. Can not find any info about this or its worth.

    FLOBERT is a Parlor Gun...Used to shoot for beers in German and Belguim Pubs....Yours should have the Belguim Proof Mark on the Barrel...E over LG in an Oval..99% 0f them were in .22 CB or .22 BB Cap.....Effective range was about 25 Feet...They arn't safe drilled out to 22 Short or Bigger....The Action is very weak....strong enough for the bb/cc Caps...but prone to coming apart with short or long Cartridges...Value is about $125.00 for one in exception Condition...

    That's about what I sold mine for - $125.00. and it was missing the extractor. Does yours have the breach block that folds up away from the chamber? They are cool little rifles and many configurations, but the Captain is right about the ammo - they are too weak to contain .22 shorts/longs.
