Darne shotgun

I was in my local gunshop Saturday and a guy brought in a 16 ga Darne. The breech slides back using the lever and the shells are placed in the barrel. I had never seen one before. What a cool piece of  history.

Thanks for posting a picture Wigeon. I pasted one into my original post, don't know where it went. My understanding is they were made in 12, 16 and a very rare 20 ga.

The double gun shop owner loves Darnes. They are usually VERY light.

However, The French copy nobody and nobody copies the French. Don't expect to see new ones any time soon.
