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 classic round action was once a .360 rifle and would make a great rifle again. We can have this lined to 38 special for around $400.00 and it takes about eight weeks. Our man does an excellent job. That being said this would make an excellent rabbit or squirrel gun just as it is using the .410 it is chambered for!

James Purdey double rifle in .303 British - In superb condition in its makers oak & leather case Exquisite!

Caliber

Ever have a "Wow" moment? I sure did when I lifted the lid of the case and beheld this stunning double rifle from 1899 with almost all its case color on its locks and its stunning marble cake wood. Built in the waning days of the Victorian era (The blessed queen died in 1901) James Purdey was then what I consider at the pinnacle of their gun craft. This beautiful double rifle is a physical testament to the craftsman and company that is still today setting the standard to compare other gun makers. Small bore English double rifles in usable calibers are quite rare. This rifle is in superb condition with an excellent bore. .303 is readily available and is not considered obsolete, in fact being recorded by many to be an excellent caliber for North American big game. This rifle features the Beasley patent self-opening mechanism. The next owner of this rifle is a very lucky man or woman and will not only have an excellent investment but a work of art and craftsmanship from the golden age of English gunmaking

The makers case appears to have the original cleaning rod, oil bottle, and firing pin bottle. The bores are very nice. Wood shows no cracks or repairs and the bluing is very nice. This is a super English double rifle for an excellent price. We have purchased brass and bullets and dies and had Ken Owen work up a load. He found the gun shoots very well, see the target!

Charles Lancaster classic "Slide and Tilt " patent double rifle in minty condition

Caliber

If you know how a cam works you will appreciate how this Jones style action is an impressive and strong lock up. As you move the Jones lever to the right the barrels actually slide away from the breech face and after a small way then drop open to expose the breech to load. Closing the gun it is very impressive, as the lever is closed the action slide backwards tight against the breech.

This particular rifle is in absolutely amazing high original condition, obviously it has not spent much if any time in the field. I don't know how a rifle from this vintage could still have near 90% original case color but this fine example does. The best quality engraving feels to the touch as if it was cut yesterday.

If you want the best that this period could provide in the highest condition, here is your rifle.

Excellent shiny bores and she locks up bank vault tight. Ready for the next hunt. I will even throw in a box or two of shells! At 6 lbs. 6 oz. this is one of the lightest drilling's we have ever seen in this excellent caliber and gauge. The picture was taken last fall in Alaska with a days harvest using this drilling.
