    Awwww I got really excited till I saw "the new one"!

    It it looks to use a Sabatti Rover barrelled action so I'd Google that if I were you.

    I think the retail price demonstrated that it wasn't going to be 'high end'; so not surprised!

    That said, the Sabatti 870 is a perfectly decent b/a rifle.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what's a 'b/a rifle'?

    Pity to see a classic English name used for rebadging, but I guess this is the age we live in.

    As well as doing entry-level rifles and shotguns, C&H will also make you a bespoke gun in a classic English style.

    If you check you will find that Cogswell & Harrison have a history of doing just so for their lower priced guns. Friend had one that was built on a Belgian gun and built heavier than an English game game would be. The reason for this he was told was that it was made that way to handle the heavier loads commonly in use by Colonial Officers and clerks working in India. It also had 30" barrels that were the commonly found length during that period. The gun bore little in the way of engraving a plain jane working side by side with double triggers and was most likely made shortly after the First World War.
