I am not a wood nut, but that is indeed a pretty piece that Randy has!

Apparently, a 28 gauge Autumn is being discussed for 2021.

Thank you for the review Randy. It looks like a real beauty!

Kind of strange to see a RH shooter manipulate the top lever with the Left hand. I have seen Lefties do that, but you are the first RH shooter I have seen use that method.

Agree completely, a beautiful gun. While I know what`s "expensive" is relative, for me, at $5 shy of 4K, it should be. I would imagine street price will be somewhat less but I`d bet it won`t be much.

I noticed Randy using his left hand on the lever. I`ve also never seen that before with a right handed shooter.

Hmmm. Makes me wonder if Randy is not a closet Lefty. :lol:

This is a brighter version of the same video. There will be a re-shoot, but the weather hasn't been cooperating as of late.

I am a big Fabarm fan owning 3. I would love to have this gun but I am just shooting clays now. Would this gun be too light for a 200 round day on a sporting clays field?


Tanya Faulds received a 12 gauge Fabarm SxS a matter of days before a British SxS tournament . . . and took the gold with it. At 6-3/4 lbs. (beavertail / pistol grip) it isn't too light for sporting clays. You might want to add a pad.

Apparently, no 28 gauge is coming, 20 gauge for now, with left-hand and double trigger versions ahead for 2021.
