SIDE-BY-SIDE SHOTGUN 40E – SWINGING ALONG

The 40E is the basis Meisterstück of the side-by-side shotgun range. Light and elegant, it sets the standard in terms of responsiveness.

The shotguns are perfectly balanced when swinging and have a comfortable recoil. Equipped with totally reliable Anson & Deeley locks.

SIDE-BY-SIDE SHOTGUN 41E – THE SLIM RECEIVER

The elegant sister of the 40E is dressed to kill.

This Meisterstück combines the elegant 28 calibre barrel with a custom-made steel receiver. The stock is perfectly aligned to the action and the barrel.

This functional Meisterstück is the collector’s piece among the shotguns. Special feature: sidelocks made in Suhl by Merkel combine precision engineering with the explosive power of the intricately made V-springs – gems of the gunmakers art.

SIDELOCK SIDE-BY-SIDE SHOTGUN 61E – THE BEST GUN IN TOWN

The elegant sister of the 60E is based on the slender 28 calibre receiver. Around the steel receiver, Merkel has constructed a gun that was originally conceived as Suhl’s answer to the best guns from traditional English manufacturers. Today this shotgun is technically in a unique position and competes, if at all, with the products of small gunsmithing workshops. The 61E combines modern precision engineering with master craftsmanship to achieve a very sophisticated product – which, nevertheless, retains its distinctive Suhl style.
