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

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!

Purdy 20 ga. hammer double with nitro proofs 2 3/4"!!

I purchased this Purdey with the thought that the Vintager competitor would love this gun to shoot the 20 gauge hammer event with of which it would be deadly and in the right hands a winner. Nitro proofed for 2 3/4" nitro 20 gauge this lovely rifle could be used as a smooth bore rifle (with the correct load) or a shotgun. What a combo!

This would make a fun snake or vermin shotgun or to line back to a rook rifle of which it was originally. We have had this done to .32 S&W and it came out great.

Walter Locke rifles were made for them by Westley Richards. This gun is suitable for any dangerous game, Jumbo on down. The bore is excellent. This would make an excellent working rifle to take to Africa. Notice the extra heavy reinforced barrels and the 10 lbs. 8 oz. weight. The gun is very well made and features disk set strikers, large double under lugs and Greener style cross bolt safety third bite.

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. 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?

It is very rare for us to find small bore double rifles. Bores are good, there is some minor external pitting on the action and the barrels that could be removed if the metal was refinished.

Bore has some very light pitting in places but over all very bright with sharp rifling. We are unsure of case length. Stock is loose on action so I suspect an internal crack that needs repairing. We can do this here.
