Pete - The Sabatti's target sure looked fine, and the gun itself seemed ok as well. I'll have to research the name, I've no idea about them or where they're even made. Name sounds Italian, but who knows?

Tell you the truth I've been thinking about that Ruger. I've had a #1 in 45.70 for a long while and I love it.

An itch for another double came on, but that doesn't mean I have to scratch it. Hell, I've already got two doubles, old and beautiful. Scratching would take some stretching, and I don't really know as it's worth it right now.

HA! The eternal quest and question of the gun nut!

Before you proceed with the Sabatii I strongly suggest that you get 'up to speed' on them. Go to AR and read all threads in the search using Sabatti.
It's not all good news.

The Chapuis is more bang for the buck.

But I suppose you could get a pair of Ruger #1's and a roll of duct tape to make a DR.

No, Mike, if I am going to decide on a "modern" gun, it'll be a double rifle, and a Chapuis. I'm really not one to spend a little when I could put that little to a greater good/amount/quality.

I must say, everything I've seen and read in the last week about Chapuis is all positive, very much so.

Speaking of AR, and NE for that matter: Do you have to be a member before you can see what they've got for sale?

I tried becoming a member a few times to both sites. In fact, I WAS a member of AR about7 years ago from my computer at the company I worked for. Somehow their server retained that info and cancels out my "new" info because of it. I know it sounds wacky, I wrote emails to them last summer, never got anywhere.

Anyway, you can tell it's late because I'm rambling. The real crux of the matter is I just love old guns so much, pulling the trigger on a modern one is tough, but I imagine once it's done the feeling is as good.

I really must bid goodnight, but first thank you all for your help and input, it is substantial. Best Regards - Marc

ps - I'll keep you posted, and if any revelation hits please let me know as well.

Re-register with a fresh name then add your old one in the sig/tag line. I don't know if the ads aren't visable to non menbers.

I have some very old rifles (approx 1870) and the Chapuis is one of my newest made ones. A Searcy 450NE is the other newbie. I like them all.

I own a Chapuis 9.3x74R DR that I bought from Dale Nygaard with great satisfaction.

I have been working up rounds for it, as a matter of fact I just shot it this morning. Had it about a year and a half but have not used it much and have not hunted it yet.

Beautiful and very well-made.

Chapuis are usually regulated well. Herschel Chaddick once told me that certain big name British makers wanted to work a deal with them to regulate their guns, they were so accurate...
Price point on the Sabatti is hard to beat, though.
