Has anyone spoken or heard from Abe Chaber recently? I left a message a couple of months ago regarding a shotgun I had left with him for a repair and never got a response. I just tried calling today today and got an automated message saying the inbox was full.


I have become addicted to English hammered shotguns to the detriment of my wallet.

I understand that Abe's wife has had a few medical issues and for the past year his time at the bench has been limited. However, I also understand that her situation recently improved and he is now working on his backlog. Perhaps others who know him better can chime in.

There is a picture of Abe Chaber at his bench in the July/August 1993 issue of Sporting Classics magazine, part of a Michael McIntosh article. Pretty far from a current photo, but if you like I can mail you a xerox copy. Or take a cell phone picture and text it to you.

Abe worked on a couple guns for me as well. I also interviewed him for an article I was doing for Shooting Sportsman (about 17 years ago) on Miroku doubles. He worked on quite a few of the Miroku-made Charles Daly OU's, which he said were good guns but with a tendency to break leaf springs.
