    Belgium made Liegeiose shotguns must be a rare find.

    I just checked in the Numerich Gun Parts Corporation website for your gun. They've got a great cross reference chart available and it's very extensive. However, I couldn't find the Belgium made Liegeiose which you asked about.

    Maybe someone else on this forum may respond who has an idea on how to get your answer. There's a lot of gun smiths, collectors and gun hobbyists here who should be able to get you on the right track.

    Good luck.

    Hi Oxford

    This shotgun is my grandfather shotgun, it has more thas 70 years and it is still tight fit between barrels and bascule. It still shoots but I want to buy an extra pair of barrels. The only one that I´ve saw in Lisbon about 6 month ago it was very very expensive, perhaps it´s still there.
    I have a contact now, Musée D´Armes de Liege or Robert et Cie in Liege.
    Thank´s a Lot.
    Best regards

    Glad you've found a contact for your grandfathers shotgun parts. Those parts could be very difficult to find.

    I had to use my map finder to learn where Liege was located in Belgium. I've never been there. My wife and I traveled through the coastal area of Belgium two years ago on our way from Callieu, France to Amsterdam, Netherland as we vacationed via motorcoach on a tour of central Europe. In July of this year We plan spend ten days in the south of France near Nice.

    Best regards,
