Yes - quiz weapon is a Sjögren :D

There is an info: http://www.forgottenweapons.com/sjogren ... nd-shotgun
(.pdf link below is my original photo source; shotgun photo is from Wikipedia)

Hints:
Isaac Newton’s First Law of Movement – “INERTIA” ;
Sjögren autoimune disease;
Denmark – most of Sjögrens were manufactured there (i.e. shotguns; test rifles were made in Sweden).

In a way, I quite pleased that question was not solved using easy hints I gave :) (browsing with inertia-shotgun and Denmark-manufacture-shotgun would gave immediate results).

Well done, Shaba :D - your question is next!

The "Upload attachment" button works almost flawlessly (red arrow marks the spot) - only limitations are photo size and certain formats (like .bmp), so - don't give up easily! :D

Thanks,

Next up a slightly off-topic question: Which country was this 1915 prototype from?

Austria-Hungary indeed is the correct answer. This weapon, the invention of a Standschütze Hellriegel, was called a machine gun in 1915 although it appears to have chambered a pistol cartridge. Here are the whole 1st and 2nd picture plus a 3rd one featuring a mag bearer.

Over to you,
