Side by Side, External Hammers

Does anyone know if these double barrel side by side shotguns with external hammers are still made? Where might I look for one if they are, or even if they are not?

If more laws restricting our rights will make us free from harm, why aren't we safe yet? We are only less free.

When faced with impossible overwhelming odds, prudance would dictate the only thing left is to figure out what is possible, and to do it.

Punishment for all crimes should increase until the recitivism rate approaches zero.

There are a few repros being made...

For cowboy action shooting.

Check out Coyote Cap's place...

I'm not usually into making disingenuous posts, but I couldn't resist:

Remington has a model in their new "Spartan Gun Works" line. Local Dunham's Sporting goods had some make of 20" barrel 'Coach Gun' a while back with the external dog-ear hammers.
Load your weapons and 'Stand Ready'. It will be a bumpy ride.

I handled and almost bought one of those rabbit-eared Baikal Bounty Hunters mentioned in Boxcab's post. It seemed -solid. Very solid. Solid like a Soviet tank, and about as sophisticated. Very barrel-heavy for such a short gun (like the Stoeger Uplander I used to own) but it looked like it could go to Hell and back. If I had the money and inclination I'd swing for one of those Berettas that Jart teased us with. The Russian was about $300, roughly 1/5 what the Italian costs. These days, IMO, external hammer guns are best used at Vintager shoots and Cowboy-Action events. Anything else deserves a modern gun design.
