What stops the bolt on a Darne shotgun?
« on: August 07, 2020, 11:01:47 AM »
Howdy
I have a Darne shotgun in which the bolt slides completely off the gun.  What stops the bolt on a Darne.  The safety is missing and that may be the problem.
Regards
Colt

My Good Colt Fanning -

I fear that more information is necessary for a correct reply... BUT

If you mean the Sliding Breech Darne Double Shotgun, this page can offer an explanantion of how
the lever operates a bolt to hold the breech on place
