Trying to identify an old shotgun

I have half a side by side that appears to be a 12 gauge shotgun. I only have the barrel end at the moment, believe the remaining pieces are in a locker at my mom and dads. Would like to identify this jewel so i know what i have and can answer that question when someone points at it hanging on the wall ounce I've added the remaining pieces to make it complete. The only stamping I've found so far appears to say "JE 1612 LAMINATED STEEL BELGIUM"

Welcome, I don’t have any first hand knowledge of these shotguns. But what I have read just briefly online the method of making this type of barrel was used between the 1800's to early 1900's.
I didn’t see anything referring to the JE.
Looking forward to seeing the finished project of this piece.

I Googled "JE 1612 laminated steel barrel" and got a number of hits. It seems that this gun was probably made between 1890 and 1920, but by who is anyone's guess if it's not plainly marked as to maker. Belgian gun makers flooded the market with them for a while. I guess these may be the "Saturday Night Specials" of shotguns.....

Appreciate everyone's response, the biggest job is going to take a new but stock and distress it to look old and weathered to match the forward. Thanks again
