He told me some time ago that he had retired. I don’t think G&H has replaced him. He did superb documentation on guns that had gone through G&H! He went far beyond just statistical data and often supplied great information on the original buyers. It seemed to be a labor of love for him. Thank you Bob for all your fine work.

Bob Beach was certainly a big help to me in providing information on a couple of older guns I was researching at one time...Geo

Absolutely, I got a veritable biography of my Francotte.

Bob still checks into the Forum regularly.
You might send him a PM.

There is a link to his previous DoubleGun Francotte summary here

Thanks, Drew. My interest turned in another direction as far as the gun goes. But I'll try a PM to Bob just to see if he still has access to the records. G&H replied that Bob had retired and they hadn't found anyone to hire as a replacement historian.
