MERKEL 12G SIDE BY SIDE SHOTGUN.

Made in Germany 12g Boxlock Ejector Side by Side Shotgun from their BEST known manufacturer Merkel.

28” (710mm) barrels with 2 ¾” (70mm) and fixed chokes. A loose half and tight full left and right respectively. Walls measure up to 30,000” plus with bores near exactly as original proof marks. As such basically very little use since brand new. Tapering Concave Sight Rib with a Single Brass Bead to the muzzle.

Minimum right hand cast to the 14 ½” (363mm) stock so could well work from either shoulder. Other than that a Strong Straight Grained with some reasonable Colour Contrast.

Original Case Hardening is still circa 80% to each side of the action but the bottom is all but gone. Obviously carried about and held just there whilst doing so.

Scales register a lightweight 6 Lbs 5 ½ oz (2.875 Kg) so easy enough to take with you even on a long walked up day. Overall measurement comes in at 44 ½” (1130mm).

As detailed, this is a gun from Merkel, Germany’s best known manufacturer. A company  with a WELL deserved reputation for Design and Build Quality of the highest calibre. Check out what a shotgun would cost you brand new today and that will give you an idea. I have not had the stock off this but no reason to suspect anything different. Usually even the parts are individually numbered to match the gun. Generally ‘glorious’ to look at too as each piece hand finished and even polished. Yes, this is an older example but still a superbly made gun and offers a huge saving against new.
