Any one have any information on how to take a Darne shotgun apart? Just info on removing the breech and barrels would be a good start.

Slide the breech back, on the underside of the overhanging part of the breech block there is a small button. Push it in, the actuating handle will pop up a little and the breech block can continue to be slid backwards and off the receiver.

The barrels have an underlug that engages the receiver when the breech block pushes it forward. A light tap with a soft faced mallet on the muzzle should allow the underlug to disengage as the barrels back out toward the butt end of the gun.

It seems to me there is a flat spring in the bottom of the receiver that needs to be in the right position to allow the barrel to move freely without mangling the spring...watch for it.

Disassembly advice is free...how to put it back together costs $100

For better advice look up Geoffrey Gournet on Google. He is the US importer of Darne, understands them well and is a heck of a nice guy.

The breech block came off easily. The barrels will not move. Is there some thing to press, move, ect. to get them to slide back?

I got it. The flat metal bar in the bottom of the action had to be pryed up. Then the barrels slid off. The bottom parts in the action are fairly simple. I had to make a new trigger spring. The gun is now working again. Thank you for your help.
