The new "Series 3" action is the smallest offered by Chapuis, suitable for rifle cartridges such as the 30-30 or 7x57R, as well as 28 gauge shotgun barrels. The action has a round body and employs a scaled down "double lump" blitz mechanism. Ejectors are standard.  The rifle barrels are 24" in length with a fixed rear sight adjustable for windage, and a front sight adjustable for elevation. The rib is dovetailed and blanked for Weaver, pivot or claw-type scope mounts. Shotgun  barrels can be had in 26 or 28" lengths with fixed or screw chokes. There are 2 grades available: the RGEX grade, a scalloped boxlock; the REX with sideplates. These same two grades are also available from the custom shop ("Artisan" range) with a greater degree of hand work and improved fit and finish. We illustrate on the standard production versions. Note, we can also supply an entry-grade RGEX with extractors and a simple border-engraved case-colored action, upon special request.

We hope you enjoy this display of fine modern gun-making.
