There is very little information about the gun maker A. Bartsch. The following comes from the Pape & Kellner archive.

A. Bartsch of Liegnitz was a Buchsenmachermeister or Master Gun Maker. He specialized in high end hunting weapons, received a German Patent no. 22528 of Aug. 12, 1882 for a Lock for a hammerless gun. He developed an incendiary shotgun cartridge which he advertised in 1883.

The following article appeared in the Der Waffenschmied of Munich and Leipzig in 1883.

Following is the patent issued to A. Bartsch in 1882.
