I noticed this a while ago, but seeing it today triggered something. Is there anyone on this board who can imagine posting an ad for a shotgun--$3600 for a Darne R10 no less!--and stating in writing that you can't specify the gauge because it's "not marked"? Any wonder there's talk of Cabela's Gun Libraries, reducing operations?

Probably have to get permission from the home office to insert a 12 or 16 gauge shell to see which fits better. Betting it's a 16 at that weight. Genius at work. Gil

At 6.25 lbs, my money'd be on 12. Maybe the local management could authorize inserting snap caps?

I'd guess it is a 12 also. It seems to be in really beautiful condition.

Agree on both 12 and condition. Anyone interested should send a note to tell them how to remove the barrels and check the gauge (while confirming the chambers, too).

Is the price a bit high for an R10, even in great shape?

You can say that again. When appraising a Darne R model, START WITH THE TRIGGERS! There are some that simply can't be made better, and if you find a good one that has decent triggers, it is worth more money. While a great fuss is typically made about chambers, a Darne will always have plenty of material in that area of it's barrels, and lengthening them on a hunting implement like an R10 isn't a huge deal. I run the Winchester low noise 2 3/4" loads in my 65mm chamber Halifax with no problems, another option to consider.
Or, you could just buy the right ammunition. Sé vous plais.

Nice as it is, I'd hate to be into that R10 for more than $1500-$1800 or so. Assuming good triggers.

Best,
Ted

Would you call the wood on that gun to be understated to the max.?

The add says that it is a ten gauge.
