It's not bad at all- just comes down to who ya know. smile

Two guns and two sets of barrels so far, and ain't done yet. Oh and Argo, don't tell anyone about that auction site or how magnificent the French and their guns really are: let the detractors muse about their myths.

Merci, mes amis.

Just a possible addition. Having dealt relatively recently with the St. Etienne proof house, believe you need to note two terms:
"epreuve ordinaire" which is self-explanatory, and
"epreuve superieur" which seems to have replaced triple proof.

Best, Tim

Thanks Tim - I've added the two. I read these gun ads regularly and always find variants. I'll change, replace, add, au fur et Ó mesure.

This is a keeper, those of you who have contributed to this post are to be saluted for your hard work.

There is some real quality in the guns from France that goes largely unappreciated in this country

This thread needs to be in the FAQ section. There should also be similar threads for German and other language's gun terms.

Regards

OK, I have started working on it. It will take me a few hours. My site is hosted by Yahoo. Got an email informing me that they have sold off that part of the business. Unfortunately, they promoted their own product called "Site Builder". Well nothing understands Site Builder. I am going to convert the site to Word Press in the next few weeks. The site is not that busy, only about 26,000 hits a year. The great majority are coming from search engines. So a lot of curious folks out there. I am sure your translations will attract a few more.

We do need to straighten out the canons frettes definition. It's one of those that requires more than a couple words. "Sleeved" doesn't really do it, as we understand "sleeved" in English--which is cutting off old barrels and fitting new ones into the chambers. "Canons frettes" can also refer to the original barrels, as in the design of perhaps the single most popular French shotgun of all time: the Manufrance Robust.
