For Heym here is the link:

www.heym-waffenfabrik.de/

(I had a dream in my hands on IWA show - I hope to own one of those one day...)

and remove Frankonia from the list - they are only a big seller, nothing else...

During the heyday of hunting the maximum number of double rifles was in India, Two famous British manufacurers who were based in Calcutta were 1. Mantons and 2. R B Roddha. In some cases they supplied doubles built on order in Birmingham or London and carrying their stamp, in other cases the doubles were often assembled and built with quality barrels from Germany. Both these firms folded on Indian independence. Weapons built by the Calcutta manufacturers were at par if not superior to those built by their London or Birmingham counterparts, they are collectors items today

I thought they were "whoretailers" not manufacturers, no?

Haven't seen it in the list, but I do like Raick Freres Boxlock doubles in .405 from Belgium. Not sure if they are in business anymore.

John,

A few other German makers of yesteryear that I believe are not on the list as yet are:

Greifelt

Christoph Funk

Wilhelm Brenneke

Ok Brenneke didn't make very many guns compared to the others, supposedly only a little over 400 total guns to include driilings, shotguns, and bolt actions but he did make some double rifles

Buchseman

Not quite Spanish though jcorry, barrels are made in Belgium where the gun is regulated, I believe Victor Sarasqueta (the old guy now long dead, not the modern company) and Mateo Mendicute (also long dead) are the only two Spaniards who made a complete double "in-house". Mendicute moved to AYA in 1952, in his 1930's catelogues he lists his double in .303 British, they exist, somewhere, in very limited numbers but I have never seen one, let alone seen one for sale best, Mike

Add http://www.mathelon-armes.com/ to the French makers. I have one of their 9.3 X 9.3 X 9.3 triples and it is a winner.

Sabatti of Italy is obviously making double rifles, and is having difficulty meeting demand. I would love to know how to contact them, preferably by email, but snail mail address and phone number would also be appreciated.

Just in case he has not been mentioned yet:
Max Ern (and family)
Bergische Landstr.87

Germany
http://max-ern.com

Max Ern builds finest rifles to order, He builds S/S and O/Us, both boxlock and sidelocks, most with rising-bite lockup. They do their own barrel rifling, lockmaking, casehardening and engraving too. The website is in English too.
