File this under “for what it’s worth”.

Whatever remained of the company that built Darne shotguns in France, has been sold to a new owner. Surprisingly, I have been told he is a young gunmaker, by the name of Mornet Ronan.I do not know this man, but, people I do know, that I hold in high esteem, do. His work, in repair, and building the guns is said to be exemplary, and he was an independent gunsmith/gunmaker prior to owning the company, and turned out finished, in the white actions, supplied to him by the company to be sold as Darne built guns. I am told he is mercurial, and almost completely unconnected to the World Wide Web, checking in briefly, or seldom, and not terribly concerned about following up. Another contact, a relocated Frenchman, put it this way-he is “a very typical French gunmaker, that is about the best I can say, and that isn’t saying much”.

Dude is honest, anyway. Mirrors my experience.

At any rate, this is the contact information I have.

ronan.mornet@laposte.net

Perhaps this will help someone out, here. If you are interested in historical info or date of build guesses, or translating proof marks, you will do better, right here on Mr. Weber’s site.

The world is changing.

Best,
Ted

Apparently, Ted, Ronan Mornet bought Ets. Darne in 2020 possibly from the Holding company that had acquired Darne from Herve Bruchet seven or eight years ago. Here's what is on the internet about the new company which does not seem to be heavily capitalized and he is a sole owner, if my French serves.

Regards, Tim

If it is a one man shop, he won’t need a ton of capital.

I notice it is identical to the Bruchet address, leaving me to conclude it is on the same premises as it was, across the street from the St. Etienne chamber of commerce, and the building that housed the canteen for the Manufrance company, which, was a fancy restaurant when I was there. That building would be frightfully expensive to buy. I wonder if he rents the gun making premises?
Upstairs was a exercise club, that was rented out.

I wish him luck.

Ted

Fab Merci pour l'information. J'ai vu ce fusil sur le site Web de Français précédent, mais il ne semble pas que ce soit la conception Petrik que les Buchets construisaient. Sinceres salutations Ted

He has the trap gun O/U, which, does not appear to be a Petrik, listed at 14,800 euro.

Good luck with that...
