Absolutely stunning.

I fell in love with Geoffroy's signature flighting woodcock several years ago.

I was wondering the same thing.

They're not really 4/0-frame barrels, they are only marked that way. We are talking about the 00-frame 28-ga. sets that have added .410 barrel sets to them. These 4/0-frame sets are a different animal than the true 0000-frame .410 guns that we've been talking about throughout this thread. The confusing thing is, to my knowledge, all Parker Reproduction .410 barrels are marked 0000, although they are marked the same, there are really two different sized barrels intended for two different dimensioned frames.

I had asked the above question earlier in this thread. To date, there have been no responses, so I thought I'd bring it to the top for another go round. Anyone know if any Parker Reproduction DHE .410 single guns built on a 00-frame even exist?

I have seen one BHE 28/410 2 barrel set built on an OO frame.I was told at the time that it was the only set built that way.The 410 production was cut short when the Japanese closed the factory on very short notice.At the time there were only 12 competed guns,some barrels and actions in process.I believe Galazan got the parts and finished some guns.
