Restoration of the metal included a complete re-case hardening of the receiver and slow rust blue of the barrels back to original specifications. The receiver features a very nice subtle case coloration throughout that blends seamlessly with the barrels and highly figured walnut stock. The barrels show virtually no trace pitting, I would rate them as 98% non-original finish but true to factory specs and very consistent. 99% engraving and rib cuniforming. The receiver is as near perfect condition as you will find, absolutely no trace pitting, strong engraving and consistent color. Wood Condition: Excellent, Complete restock in Claro Walnut. Shaped, fitted, checkered and finished by Brad Bachelder. Total cost for the wood restock came to over $2200.00. The quality of this stock exceeds many typical grain patterns. A very nice marbled figure is seen throughout complimented by a beautiful redish hue. The owner of this fine shotgun was tedious in selecting a blank out of California that paired well with the unique coloration of the receiver and blended well without being overbearing. Other: Francisque Darne - He was the eldest son of Regis Darne. Regis designed and held the patent on this style of fixed barrel, sliding breech shotgun from 1897 to 1906. Regis' patent for the 1 piece stock model in expired in 1906. It is thought that Regis allowed it to expire for 2 reasons. The first was that his son Francis wanted to branch out on his own. The second was that the one piece stock design was difficult to manufacture. Regis continued the re-design by making the stock a 2 piece version and let his son Francis continue the single piece stock model. This gun is circa 1914. It is a Grade C, which was the middle of the A-E scale for that year. Very few of grade C, D, or E were manufactured. It is chambered in 12 gauge with the original 65mm chambers. Has the scant prince of whales pistol grip. Sunken ribs on the barrels and 2 punch marks for Grading.
