    Thanks for the link - I haven't checked my email for my copy

    I wonder if Baikal, Huglu, et al use the same process

    I knew that the guns were/are handmade but that video was amazing. Hand filing a barrel to a uniform thickness. I figured that he was going to chuck it into a lathe. Nope.
    Michael McIntosh has a section entitled "Gunmaking" in his book "Shotgun Technicana"; in it he details the construction of a shotgun at Purdey. Very much the same attention to detail and handwork.
