    Hey Bob, neat article on the M1935 in SGN this week, did you see it?

    I liked his comment about French Arms designers since WWI evidently hating French Soldiers...

    Anyway, Abernathy has one in sweet condition, cheap, that I've thought about alot. How can such a great looking gun need such a goofy round?

    I get it...America gave us 50,000 rounds of a caliber/size they don't want, let's design a gun for it...I always wondered where all the .30 Pederson went.

    I am still trying to catch up - my latest issue of Shotgun News is still sitting on the counter. I'll need to read that article.

    It talks a little about the Eibar connection with the French Military during WWI and later.

    Read the article this evening. That is one thing I like that Shotgun News has started doing - carrying those articles once a month on old militaries and cartridges. They do mention the French purchased Astra 400s after WWI - that occurred sometime around 1929 to 1932. That is one Astra 400 I would like to add to my collection yet - French arsenal marked.
