Mikael, I agree with your thought that the initials are SJTC. I thought that from the beginning but didn't want to jump into that guessing game but now that you have said it I will admit that I agree with you.
I have looked on a couple of search engines and come up with nothing for Lewald and Schleuthers. If you can find a descendant of the original owners of the store you will have made a good start in possibly determining who the initials were for.
The Grade-3 or D grade guns were called the "Doctor's Gun" because of the $100 value of such a gun at that time and the ability to buy such a gun would generally require more than a modest annual income.
