Default Miroku Baby Frames

Is anyone well versed on the Miroku Baby Frame 28 gauges?
Scarce, almost rare. Anybody have one?
Thanks

I have had a few Daly baby frame 410 and 28’s, is that what you are referring to? the problem I had was they have a V hammer/main spring and they break, they are a bear to replace. Other than that they are great and reasonable priced small gauge O/U’s.

5lbs 8oz.
Are we talking about the same gun?
Twice the cost of an older Citori so not exactly "reasonably priced".
Thanks

I'd never heard of them. Interesting.

Bobby,

There were a few articles on the baby frame 28s in the late 70s or early 80s. Somewhere around 200 were made although some people say there may have been 1000. Here's a link that provides some information http://leeroysramblings.com/Gun%20Ar..._shotguns.html.

I have checked through several old Gun Digests and see under the Charles Daly over/unders that had been offered just in 12- and 20-gauge in 1967 and 1968 they list a 28-gauge with 26-inch barrel for $50 more than the 12- and 20-gauges. No other elaboration on the 28-gauge. A few years later they add the 28-gauge and .410-bore that are listed as weighing the same as the 20-gauges.

I had a Pigeon Grade baby frame 28" 28 gauge, foolishly sold it. I had no idea they were "rare".
