Merkel combo in 12g. over 6.5x57R - one of my favorite deer cartridges!
Drillings, Double Rifles, and Rifles
12 gauge

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 drilling is chambered in 9.3x72RSS, a larger version of the standard 72 R using a case similar to the 9.3x74 but not the same ballistics. I have hunted with a drilling almost identical to this one for years and I have to say I just love the feel of these. Mine is my go too gun when I cannot seem to hit with anything else! This design is a full sidelock shotgun with the rifle sears built on a trigger plate. It is only hot when the rifle is cocked with the sidelever which equates to safe shotguning when the rifle is not in use. The top lever safe is a big plus as most drillings do not have this and we top safe people do not have to adapt. The peep sight is a work of art. The internal craftsmanship on these guns is like a pre-war Swiss watch. Bright bores, with some marks from some previous dings removed. The action appears to be recently tightened, tight on the face. Checkering is worn and rubbed in places but very restorable. Notice the detail in the front trigger! Wow.

A nice combo in a great caliber. Bores are very nice. Scope is clear and mounts and de-mounts well. I noted after I took the pictures that the butt stock appears to be new (Pro done) and the safety on top a new one also (it works fine).

This is a proven working large game rifle for Africa (or your own back yard if you live like we do...) Excellent bores. Comes with Brass and accurate loading information. A super solid gun ready for the hunt. Picture of Cape Buffalo taken with this rifle! ( I did not know that rifles could also be camera's!) bad joke.

Tight high grade double rifle that has seen Africa. The last owner shot two Cape Buff''s with this gun. Condition is high with bright and sharp bores. I notice on close inspection an old crack repair in the wood of the wrist. The Cape Buffalo in the picture resides in a great watering hole, the Road Kill, in Montana. This mighty queen resides over all there now. I will be posting the story of that hunt soon. This rifle wants to go back to Africa. She comes with ammo. Are you man enough to take her?

If you are not aware of the Lancaster slide and tilt patent then you need to learn about it. The lever beautifully cams the barrels in and out from the breech face, bringing the gun up tight every time. I love this action. The quality level is at the highest of the period and the bore is bright and the gun still has 40% case color. I love this gun. Comes with three die set and modern hard case.

We have made a cast and found this gun to be a 11.2x60mm Mauser. This is a quite well known maker of top notch guns from Hanover Germany. I must say that the bore is not only bright but the rifling is very sharp and shows little ware. I love the peep sight inlet into the top tang.

This gun has a very nice bore and a long African history that I am sure included ridden hard and wet. The PH did at all cost take care of the bore however. Restoration with new blue has made the old girl look much nicer including a new stock copied after the original. yes, we have the original stock. It was broken and repaired. This guns screams of history on the dark continent. I have to wonder how many times this gun has stared into the eye's of death.

What a sweet little double rifle! Nice bores. Wood is very pretty but could do with a refreshing of the oil finish to bring out all its beauty. I would loose the white line vent pad and put on a traditional leather covered one. This guns deserves it.
