Simonis Janseen and Dumoulin created guns in Liege, Belgium between the periods of 1883-1912. S.J.D. & Co made low priced, standard quality shotguns in hammer and hammerless, with side snap, LeFacheaux, and top lever opening styles of shotguns. These were made primarily for the American market and hardware distribution trade. This era of shotguns were likely to have Damascus, twist or laminated Steel barrels.
