Is there anyone making reasonable priced replacement stocks for a Darne action shotgun?


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

No. At least not here in the USA. Gournet was taking Darne guns back to France a few years ago for jobs like that...cost was still north of 2k. From what I hear...he doesnít take guns back to France anymore for gun work. Thereís talented stock makers here in the US that could build a stock for a Darne....for many it would be a first and there would be a lot of trial & error involved until they could get it right.....which also drives up the cost of the finished product. For the most part....if youíre a Darne owner and would like a new stock..youíre pretty much SOL.

There are plenty of people here, however, that can make decent repairs to the existing stock or graft a new butt to the original head.

Iíve never actually seen a graft on a Darne stock. There is a wood screw down the center of the wrist, that complicates things. It would be easier to start the graft behind that, but, you are well behind the wrist by then. It would be a tough job.

Not saying it canít or hasnít been done, but, Iíve never seen it. Iíve seen lots of Darnes that need stock work, however.

Best,
Ted

It is possible to purchase semi-Inletted stocks on Naturabuy but it it is a hit and miss proposition

Note naturabuy is in French only, so you need to take sometime to learn translations.

If it is semi-inletted, but, has not had the big hole jig drilled for the screw, you are wasting your time.

Old colonel, can you provide a link, I cannot find them. On another note for Ted, is it possible to send a blank over and have it semi inlet and returned. Do you know of anyone stateside who could drill the hole. All help appreciated.
