No. What would the company that produced the finest American double barrel shotgun want with a utilitarian import?
Damascus barrel (in French).
A damascus barrel is a barrel made of damascus steel, which is steel produced by hammering two different steels together. The twist refers to the pieces of steel being twisted while they are hammered, which produces the distinctive pattern on the steel.
