Darne 16ga French Double Barrel Shotgun
Darne shotguns have a unique and very strong sliding breech design. It is opened by pulling up the lever on top of the breech and pulling backward to extract the empty cases. There are very well made and seldom found in the United States.
The 25 1/2" barrels have scattered pitting throughout the bores, along with a little on the outside. The chambers are 2 5/8" and should not be shot with 2 3/4" shells unless modified. The LOP is 15 1/4". The butt stock has been refinished, the fore stock has not and shows wear. It test fired OK and works well, except the bolt stop must be worn. It often doesn't prevent the bolt from sliding all the way off when it is pulled backward. This doesn't prevent the gun from being shot. It looks like it had a sling swivel base removed from under the barrels. Serial #638
