Most of the vintage .401s side-by-sides I see on the used market are small guns with tiny proportions – short stocks, stubby barrels, etc.
This Francotte caught my eye because it looks like it was made with full-grown person in mind. With 28″ bbls and a 14 3/4″ stock, it’s a pint sized double barrel that would fit most of us. The price looks pretty fair, too (and check out the wood).
