Our Assessment: This is a beautiful shotgun from Fabarm that looks to have seen little to no use. The L4S incorporates an innovative new design that allows the fore-end to be removed without disassembling the shotgun. The design has two significant advantages. Removing the fore-end allows the action to be cleaned and lubricated without having to disassemble the whole gun. Additionally, it eliminates having the wood be part of the structural assembly of the gun, making the action and barrel relationship more accurate and stronger. By taking the stress off of the wood fore-end you also eliminate the forces that can damage and crack the wood. All grades feature Turkish walnut with a satin oil finish. The L4S is lightweight making it a pleasure to carry in the field and has a gas operating system that significantly reduces recoil. It will handle every type of ammunition from 2 ¾” target to heavy 3? magnum hunting loads. Other notable features include a stock shim system for adjusting fit and TRIBORE HP tapered barrels for the ultimate in ballistic performance. The receiver features game scenes and scroll engraving and looks sharp contrasted with the blued barrel and Turkish walnut. This one is in great shape and has hardly any wear, it will be a great new shotgun for one lucky winner. Please see our photos and good luck!
