The main system we manufacture is the sporting gun commonly known as: "Le Bon vieux Darne". The design of this gun, which dates from the early 20th century with a number of different looks, has enthralled many generations of hunters with its robust quality and exceptional ballistics. The DARNE model R shotgun, traditional simplicity; the entire mechanism of the gun is contained in the breech block. Activated by a key lever, the breech block slides on a high-resistance armature table. The gun is cocked and locked by the key lever, which has ‘ears’. The main lock uses compression, while the smaller one is located between the barrels. The firing pins are two rectilinear blocks mounted on strong helicoidal springs; this direct percussion mechanism is the basis of the success of Darne sporting guns and is used in all its models: model V, Superposed, Express. Darne Barrel-making is forward-thinking: its designers strive continuously to improve the user’s comfort and to perfect gun-making techniques.

I – Darne barrels are bored in special steel tubes, ground and smoothed with stones both inside and out.

II – They are soft soldered with tin at low temperature and assembled in a collar, preventing deterioration of the steel structure.

III – They are fitted with different types of rib (feather, straight, regular). The length varies from 60 to 75 cm. For 12 gauge, the bore is 18.4 m/m plus or minus 1/10th; the chokes can be made to suit your needs. All of this work is carried out in our workshops.

All of the shotguns are custom-made to your requirements. The stocks and handguards are made from high-quality walnut; you can choose the style, depending on the model. The breech block is given: a grey finish, old silver, after being engraved by our most skilled specialists (M.O.F. Best Craftsmen of France award) for the higher-end models. The production time varies according to the model. All sporting guns are delivered with the official proof house documentation; they are tested at 1,370 bar and certified by the appropriate hallmarks.
