Wouldn't this be the coolest gun to show up with at a shoot or hunt? It is so different as to be super cool IMO. What do you think?

Looks cool, but not suitable for clay sports.

I'd pay a small reasonable fee just for the chance to examine and shoot that gun for a round of skeet.

It's obvious why they'll never be common, but "cool" is almost an understatement, given the engineering and design.

I have always lusted after a 28 bore he made...........gives a new meaning to the term "round action"
It would be perfectly fine for subgauge events

It would do just fine; George makes/made excellent guns (and stock duplicators too)

oneoucnceload is correctomundo once again! His stock duplicating machines are an industry standard and proves what a talented engineer he is. Not content with that accomplishment he developed the "Round Action" like that shown. Some guys have all the brains and skills!

Ugh! If you like that sort of thing? Too weird for my taste! If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

That is one exceptional piece of engineering and metal working!

The one in the ad is a mere $28K. That is no step for a stepper!

I take it back. Looks like it does have a rib. I still wouldn't want to use double triggers for trap, skeet, or sporting. Seems a bit more cumbersome to open and close quickly.

What's your hurry?

Craftsmanship delivering engineering wizardry but that safety seems oddly chosen, in several fashions, and the esthetics are too far away for me to ever embrace.

I remember when this firearm design made the rounds several years ago, shotgun and rifle, and I assumed then the driver to be a "because I can" attitude.
Can't fault that but the assumed need of never shooting loose holds zero interest here....some would also say the Darne had a finger in that pie long ago.
With the Darne safety also at odds with the norm, there could be more than a passing connection.

I have to admit that the safeties operation does not seem to be user friendly. But from the video seems to be easier to use than it appears. I know that the Greener safeties on the left side of the stock; never met with my approval because I found them difficult to access.

When I was consulting for Poulin Auctions, I had the opportunity to extensively handle one of these in 20 gauge. It was magnificently engineered with excellent fit and finish. It was much easier to use than I anticipated and handled nicely (and my reference point is my Dickson Round Action). I didn’t have the opportunity to shoot it as our example was unfired. All that said, it struck me as an answer to a question no one had asked. Maybe if I had the opportunity to shoot one . . .

Handling, let alone shooting, one of these in person is now on my bucket list. Of course, for me, the same applies to a Purdey, Boss, or H&H.



But I'm not going to ever lose a moments sleep wondering if I'll ever lay eyes on one. To quote Dirty Harry, "I know my limitations."

Wow!...

Probably makes as much sense to own one of those as it does to own a fine Swiss mechanical watch?

I will slide it into my list of things to be admired that I really do not want. It goes on the list in front of the Ferrari and behind the Paul Young parabolic fly rod.
