    Can anyone give me any info about the gun/make/model/company?

    How reliable are they? Any parts breakage issues?

    Where can I find customer service in the US if I need any springs and/or any other work done to it? I'd hate to spend the money on a nice, unique gun only to have it become an expensive paperweight.

    Also, where can I find chokes and other accessories for it?

    The one I'm looking at doesn't have an owner's manual or many chokes...and I'd like to know there is a company or someone in the US that will back up any issues with this gun.

    Thanks.

    Carl

    Don't get hung up on the "H&K" factor. I have seen sellers try to play these H&K imports as being a real H&K made gun. WRONG!! H&K never made shotguns. As Steve indicates, H&K was just the importer, not the actual manufacturer. It's a Fabarm produced gun so it should be priced according to used Fabarm gun values, not because it has H&K stamped on it.

    It's an O/U with just two chokes. I liked the uniqueness of the "carbon fiber" finish.

    Are there any current/up-to date websites Fabarm? I know HK was the importer, but I can't any info or contact info for Fabarms.

    If it breaks, I'd hate to have an expensive paperweight with no support or places to get parts.

    Currently there's no official US importer for Fabarm since the last importer Tristar stop the relationship in late '09.

    If your Fabarm was imported by H & K, check with them for service references, All Fabarm shotguns import by H & K are covered by their lifetime warranty (to the original owner), H & K must be capable of servicing it.

    The "carbon fiber" finish is a water proofing film, sometimes it'll peel from the muzzle, I advise you shoot with extended chokes like the ones came from the factory to avoid this from happening. It's water proof but not scratch proof, keep sharp objects away from it, it can't be touch up.
