Many of you that enjoy shooting with the side by side shotgun are familiar with Tony Galazan’s well received RBL series of round bodied guns. The gun presented here is an as new RBL RESERVE series from Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Co. The RBL is a robust gun with excellent mechanics and a very appealing look with its bone and charcoal case colored receiver, gold plated triggers, and nicely figured walnut stock. This gun shipped with 29” barrels that retain 100% of their fine rust blue, perfect bores, choked LM/M. The metal overall retains 99.9% of the factory finishes, with the only wear of any kind at the safety on the top tang. The wood has a very nice figure and retains all of its original finish and perfect checkering. The gun balances dead on the hinge pin and has a very solid feel and comes to shoulder the way a fine side x side is supposed to. Galazan has a solid performer with his RBL. We have priced this gun to sell quickly, as I do not believe it has ever been in the field or used much at all. There is only the faintest hint of a primer ring on the standing breech indicating very little shooting. The RBL Reserve is a solid investment and will do you well on the sporting clays course or in the field. Thanks for looking!
