Merkel combo in 12g. over 6.5x57R - one of my favorite deer cartridges!
Drillings, Double Rifles, and Rifles
12 gauge
2611
58925
Proofed in August of 1963 this well made gun has excellent bores and is very tight. The double under bite lockup also has the double Kirsten barrel extensions that Merkel is famous for on its higher grade guns. The 6.5x57R round is one of my favorites as it is low recoil and fast and accurate. Based on the 8mm Mauser case this round can be purchased or easily reloaded. It is similar to the 257 Roberts but was invented by the Germans at least 20 years earlier!

This is a very unusual and rare Holland double rifle that while chambered for the standard 500 3 1/4" shells has a very tight bore around .497 with shallow rifling. The bores are basically bright and are in good condition with only some light pitting places.

The wood is beautiful and in excellent condition. The metal and engraving the same with even some case hardening remaining. Note the action has side clips and the extended top tang over the comb!

We have a copy of factory letter to go with this fine rifle.

Lyon & Lyon sold British made rifles in London and Calcutta India. They were an outfitter for the sportsman bound out of London to the far parts of the British Empire. Charles Osborne built most of their guns and this is an excellent example. On the underside of the forend is the logo of a harpoon gun, the Charles Osborne logo. Featuring auto ejectors, bushed firing pins, dolls head with 3rd bite rib extension, and full sidelocks, this was a very nice gun in it day. The Bores on this rifle are excellent and the accuracy exceptional for a double rifle featuring four shots in 1'! See target and load provide. This rifle deserves to be in the field again soon, on the hunt for game. Are you the person to put it to its task?

Johann Springer falling block Stalking rifle in versatile .270 and so much more... ...and it is stunning!
Drillings, Double Rifles, and Rifles
Caliber
3582

Built on the German Heeren action this stunning stalking rifle is in superb condition and with its original and serial numbered to the gun Kahles H/4x60 claw mounted scope.

We on special occasion get in a rifle or shotgun that has seen little use and is in high condition. This is an excellent example although we can see it was used in its early life having taken a very respectful grizzly. See the photo of the first owner with the rifle and the very scary massive bear!

Americans may not be familiar with the Heeren action, having only caught on in Europe the last 100 years. They are still building single shot rifles on this action today in Europe. The trigger may look odd but believe me it is very effective incorporating a ergonomic set trigger in its design. Solid wisdom tells us "Don't judge a book by its cover", a "person by their appearance", or in this case a "trigger by its looks." There is a lot to respect here.

Having near 100% original case hardening with near full coverage rose and scroll engraving this little stalking rifle is a master piece of gun making and a prime example of what Johann Springer of Vienna could accomplish. I particularly love the full length stock with the elegant horn schnabel.

This classic Krieghoff has seen a fair amount of field use having very little case hardening remaining, now mostly gray. The bores are bright with sharp rifling on the 9.3x72R so the gun should shoot well in both shotgun and rifle mode. I estimate the gun to be built between 1910 and 1921.

A nice bore on this saddle ring carbine. There is a small slip of wood missing in the stock on the left side of the receiver. The front site is obviously not original but effective. This 1894 dates from 1898.

Growing up here in the west we grew up as boys with plastic cap rifles modeled after this classic and I at that point dreamed of owning the real "McCoy." I did get one before I was 21 and kept it many years but then let it go when I realized it was not seeing a lot of use.

If you never had one and always wanted one here is the real cowboy rifle, meant to be carried horse back and ride the range!

Turnbull restoration informed me they can install the correct sights.
