The new development of a particularly slim drilling receiver (28 caliber) makes the current generation of Merkel drillings ever lighter and more elegant. One version of this light species is the double rifle drilling 961L, with a driven hunt trigger. The front trigger serves as a single trigger for the two upper rifle barrels. This enables a rapid second shot without the need to change grip. The rear trigger is reserved for the lower shotgun barrel. The 96LS and 961LS versions are fitted with long side plates.
The 96L/96LS models use the same locking system as the 96K/96KS drilling.
