General Specs: Darne, 12 Gauge, 6lbs 3oz, SxS

Serial Number: 12969

You don't see these guns often and they are always intriguing. Light, fast handling French made gun with a unique breech action that is solid and efficient. This gun, sn12969, is choked perfect for your upland birds and sporting clays with 27 9/16" barrels (European lengths) choked IC/LM (.010/.014 restrictions) and with the light weight you can carry the gun all day and be fresh when you get back to the truck, where you are sure to flush another bird. Nicely engraved with nice European walnut, these are affordable vintage side by side guns sure to draw the attention of all those who see it in your hands. The gun is perfect mechanically and retains 99% of the original factory finishes. I haven’t been able to date it, as it has factory stamped 70mm chamber length, or 2 ¾”, but has serial numbers that would place it pre-1910. Anyone have any ideas of when this gun was made, let me know. What a great upland gun! Please see the table below for specifics. Thanks for looking.
