Merkel SS Rifle 141 161

SIDE-BY-SIDE RIFLE 141 – THE SLIM VERSION

The 141 model is a variation of the 140 side-by-side rifle. The particularly narrow receiver and the short barrels make this gun one of the lightest side-by-side rifles in the world. The option of vertical and horizontal muzzle adjustment facilitates retrofitting a scope or changing to ammunition with a different load or bullet weight. The rifle is prepared for the fitting of a pivot mount; a driven hunt sight is supplied as standard. This compact action is the result of masterly gunmaking expertise – and rewards future owners with an exceptionally slim and responsive hunting gun.

SIDE-BY-SIDE RIFLE 161 – SLIM VERSION WITH SIDELOCKS

This gun is the sidelock version of the 141 side-by-side rifle. It combines the typical characteristics of a timeless sidelock rifle with impressive elegance and responsiveness. The refined transitions between steel and stock signalise a high proportion of handcraft. Again, short barrels are used, combined with a driven hunt sight and an a prepared base for swing mounts. The horizontal and vertical muzzle adjustment by means of slot wedges is the sort of handcrafted work of art that you can only find at Merkel.
