Francotte 12 Gauge Belgian Side by Side



NOTE: this is an example of a previous customer restoration, and therefore the firearm is not for sale.

Francotte is a weapons manufacturer in Liège, Belgium. The gun maker’s roots can be traced back to 1805. During their first decades of operation they manufactured arms for various nations around Europe. Later they concentrated on high-end civilian arms, a beautiful example you can see here – before and after restoration.
