30 Gauge Shotgun

Anybody have information on a Japanese 30 gauge shotgun? One came into my shop with all the brass shells, reloading tools. and two piece primers for loading. It is a single shot with a Merkel type side safety. I’m looking for information and will post pictures as soon as I get a chance.

Have a look at forums.gunboards.com/forumdispla … Rising-Sun and post your pictures on there. That’s the forum where the Japanese collectors are to be found.
This post that I’ve commented on is a 30 gauge Murata type shotgun, forums.gunboards.com/showthread. … ta-Shotgun I recall there are a few other posts on there that concern the Japanese 30 gauge.
