To my way of thinking, anything designed for doubles in the 1970's is really, really new because double gun design & innovation was pretty well complete by 1880!

Then I was not clear, sorry for that. Good guns YES. I am a FABARM lover and long termi loyal customer.
Consider that I did Fabarm manteinance for years (at the company HQ) on yearly basis on all my shotguns and on that gun I had 0 problems.
Interesting quality/price ratio at those times.
A bit heavy but with 4 lugs it's reasonable, and that is purely an opinion.

I hoped it's a new project based on a SS that FABARM manufactured some years ago with many positive improvements. Like ejectors selector system and opening tension adjustment (that is a really important thing from my experience).
That I hoped. Then I discovered it's the old one.
We will see.

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?

I have a Autumn 20g 28 inch, pistol grip model coming. Even though it is a 20 gauge, it sounds too light to be an ideal clays gun.

Cannot wait for your video of it Randy. I dont shoot clays, strictly grouse hunt. Probably only a box or so of shells per a season go through my guns. So that lightweight SxS sounds lovely.

My FFL told me that my English stocked Autumn is due in Monday. Just in time to carry it on a few grouse hunts. Can't wait!

Is the cast neutral?
Will left hand stock come next year?
If ordered can you request one near the 5 lb 9oz. weight?

Hope Randy gives a good review

Doubtful on the weight. Left hand stocks and double triggers are highly likely next year sometime.

Left handed stock, double trigger, and 28 gauge would check all my boxes!

That's the thing. I don't need a 20 that weighs more than my 16 at 5lb. 14oz.

I picked up my English stocked Autumn today, 28" barrels. Balanced a bit muzzle heavy, but I kind of prefer that. I threw it on the scale while at my FFL and it weighed in at 6 lbs, 3 oz.

Wow, bit surprised at the weight. Based upon their website it says 5 lbs 9 oz – 6 lbs 2 oz*. Looks like you got one on the heavier side. Bummer that it is a bit muzzle heavy as well. Was hoping for more from Fabarm. Guess I will just keep my FAIR Iside. 20 Gauge 28" barrels, weighs 5 lbs 8 oz and balances perfectly at the hinge pin. I was hoping to discover an upgrade, guess I will just keep my Iside for my grouse hunting and keep waiting for that one. Someday I will find it.

Could you possibly take some pictures? Maybe the wood is jaw dropping :)

Thanks for providing the information, greatly appreciated.

I'll try and post some pics tonight. The wood is very nice, but definitely not jaw dropping. Not as nice as the one they display on the Fabarm Web Page anyway LOL

The balance actually isn't bad. I was going with my first impression without actually testing it, but it balances about 1/2" forward of the hinge pin.

I was a bid surprised at the weight when I first picked it up. That's why I weighed it while I was there. It's light enough for me. I'll hunt with it this Friday and see how it feels after carrying for a few hours in the woods.

My pistol grip / beavertail version should be a bit heavier, thankfully.
