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!

Ernest Dumoulin Herstal Double rifle ~ Exquisite! Cased with scope and in near condition and exquisitely engraved

This double rifle from this prestigious Belgian maker is truly a work of art. Exquisite engraving, craftsmanship, and balance. This fine rifle comes in its makers oak and leather case and is fitted with a Swarovski Habicht 1.25-4 variable scope using classic and elegant claw mounts. Chambered in 8x57JRS I have to say my favorite drilling is in this caliber and have found it a superb caliber for any North American big game. I encourage you to look at the pictures and check out the quality of the engraving. Note this gun has a cheek piece on the right for a left handed shooter but I have measured the cast on this rifle and it has none so it comes up with sights perfectly lined up for a right handed shooter also. If a buyer is right handed we would be glad to remove the cheek piece with no charge.

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?

I like this rifle. It obviously has seen a good amount of service but the bore is bright with sharp rifling showing little wear indicating the previous owners priorities were in the right place when it came to cleaning their guns.

While being very attractive and functional I have found out this rifle is really quite rare as according to Walter Winfer's research Holland only built 24 of their single shot rifles on the Field's patent, all completed during the 1890's. See British Single Shot Rifles, Volume 5, Rochester, 2004, pp.11-14. Our rifle was built right during this period between 1895 and 1896. This is one of those rifles one wishes they could wave a magic wand over and ask it to talk and tell all of its stories. I am sure more than one of its stories would have us riveted to our chairs.....

This is a classic Westley falling block in honest well used but solid condition. I am sure it will shoot excellent. The bore has some haze (very fine pitting) between the rifling but the rifling is considerable and not by any means worn out and is still relatively bright.

Features :

High Velocity Nitro 360 Express, Cordite 41g-314 Max bullet, 100, 200, 300 Rear Leaf Sights in addition to adjustable elevation leaf sight, steel butt plate with trap door for cleaning rod, mounts for sling.

This will make a fantastic and truly classic Elk, Moose, Caribou, or Mule deer rifle. I'm pretty sure it would kill a white tail deer also. The thought of taking it to African makes one pause and dream.

You have to love the round action on these early and higher grade Holland rook rifles. This rifle is one of the most original examples we have had in the shop and has many wonderful features:

-Peep sight -Peep front site -two folding leaf sites

The bore has a small amount of pitting just in front of the chamber and then cleans up immediately to a bright clean and sharp rifled bore. This rifle should shoot excellently! The round action has near 50% original case hardening and I believe the wood finish and barrel blue to be all original also. A super little Holland that is a joy to carry in hand .

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.

This classic rifle has excellent rifling and features a Lyman peep sight fitted to the bolt release. The proof marks indicate the gun was originally chambered for the 30-06 (7.62x63mm) and was at some later date professionally bored and rifled to the 35 Whalen (The Whalen is a 30-06 case widened to accept a 35 caliber bullet). The metric designation is 9x63mm. The Whalen cartridge is considered and excellent choice for any North or South American big game.

I particularly like the classic commercial stocking and the octagon to round integral rib barrel and set triggers.

This Model 1908 while in all appearances appears identical to the classic 1903 Carbine is chambered in 8x56 Mannlicher Schonauer . This cartridge was very popular in Europe and develops a bit more power than our 35 Remington. I am including a box of ammunition with this rifle.

A very nice bore on this classic. Notice the weight. These rifles are known for how nice they are to pack and carry and I cannot agree more after holding this fine example.

The stock is quite dark and dry so would suggest a new oil finish.
