    Have just acquired one with two sets of barrels, seems a reasonable piece of work but know next to nothing about the maker. Appears he was mentored by JMB and had a "factory" next to FN.
    Any information would be helpful and welcomed.
    (will try to post photos if desired).

    Interesting, looks like a Benelli. I’d like to see pictures of the proof marks and other stampings on the barrels and receiver.

    Taking a rough guess I'm picking 1947 maybe?

    As to "factory" it may be closer to call it an "assembely" (not sure if that is a word but a place to assemble parts).

    I was about to post 1947 from the cursive z date code, but you beat me to it. It’s certainly Belgian but it doesn’t look like a Superposed to me. Here’s the Wikipedia article about John Browning’s protege:
