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!

Just imagine showing up at the shooting party with this rubenesque lovely piece of gun making. I have seen the scotch glasses all put down as everyone in the room wanted to hold and “ooh” and “ah” over it. This shotgun looks a bit of behemoth but in reality it is not at all. Your friends would be amazed on how well it is balanced, so well it feels much lighter and handy than you would ever guess. I love that it has three triggers. How about a quickie triple on South Dakota roosters?

I was present on a wild bird hunt in eastern Oregon where I saw this gun take a limit of pheasant and Hungarian partridge on the same day. A sight to behold!

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.

With nice bores on this almost dainty little double rifle from 1907 this would make an excellent rifle in the field. No fancy engraving, no fancy walnut, just a girl next door, the smart one, that feels great between the hands even after a long day afield.

Yes, the gun has had its butt stock restocked. It is a very nice job. I guess the first 100 years wore out the first one or perhaps a camel stepped on it.

Rigby Classic .275 HV (7mm Mauser) Bolt Rifle with claw mounted Schmidt & Bender Scope
Drillings, Double Rifles, and Rifles
Caliber
3780
6083
I have to say first of all that this rifle has an excellent bore! It is very bright with sharp rifling.

The .275 High Velocity is one of the icons of Rigby, that and their .416. It was made rather famous by Captain "Karamojo" Bell who is said to have used this caliber on over one thousand elephants. Of course nearly any high velocity round can kill anything if the bullet placement is precise. It is well known that the captain was an excellent shot and also understood the anatomy of the animals he hunted allowing for perfect bullet placement. This quote from Wikipedia "Bell shot 1,011[13] elephants during his career; all of them bulls apart from 28 cows. He is noted for using smaller calibre bullets[15][16] rather than the heavy recoiling, larger calibre bullets that were popular with other big game hunters.[17] Around 800 of his kills were made with Mauser 98 rifles chambered for the .275 Rigby (using the standard military 173 grain FMJ loading), which today is considered to be too small for elephants, and are no longer legal for dangerous African game; Bell preferred smaller calibers because, besides being lighter rifles to carry, they recoiled less and therefore are quicker to the second shot." Go to this site and read about the fine captain. It reads like a real version of a H. Rider Haggard novel! Besides his famous exploits as a big game hunter in Africa he also was a gold miner in the Alaska gold rush, a solider in the Boer war, and a fighter pilot in WWI.

I could go on about Bell all day. This rifle we are selling while similar is not one of his rifles. I did have the pleasure of owning one of Bell's .275 Rigby's but alas I was talked out of it at some point and before I could use it for a hunt much to my regrets.

Our rifle has a great bore and field ready. We had the Rigby records checked and they tell us :

Mauser Sporting H.V. Capt. S.J. Loder 23 December 1958 .275 H.V. 25" barrel 15 1/4" lop Sighting - Standing & 2 leaves 1.2.3

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.
