It works perfectly mechanically, two well-synchronised notches, very clear percussion.
Locking/unlocking of tilting barrel is perfectly functional, no play.
Automatic folding and unfolding trigger works perfectly.


- finely chiselled polished metal.
- beautiful manufacturer hallmarks on the barrel.
- lovely carved ‘cathedral type’ walnut grip with ball club head.
- barrel in its unchanged patina but still in very nice condition (interior/exterior)


Very nice double-barrelled defence model, period second empire, very carefully made by Stéphanoise, with small signs of wear and ageing but still in great condition and in perfect working condition.
