The modells before was for Africa, in heavy calibers.
The so called "Africa-Vierling".

Here I post for you an Vierling in some lighter, some european calibers.
The so called "Europe-Drilling".

In Europe they will be used with scops mostley.
Because you are mutch more far away from the animals as in Africa.

Spectacular engraving of a fine scene. And a scene that definitely needs a right and a left from a double rifle!

Jaguarhunter,

Can you tell us more about this rifle/shotgun vierling?

As it has African motifs and engraving, I imagine at least one of the two rifle calibres is a bigger bore? With maybe an accompanying medium bore?

And two shotgun barrels. A versatile firearm.

I dread to ask though, what does it weigh?

I quite like the elephant on the top lever.

I have seen the elephant on the top lever before, but not the Heym's with the cape buffalo. Again I do like it. And small enough to be out of the way on a practical rifle.

I agree with an earlier comment, I would dread to use these on a rough safari as they are examples of the engravers and gunmakers works of art.

You can get over 20 of this "animal-heads", from Elefant, buffalo, wolf, pig, lunix, Kudu, oryx, pp.

I like the colour case hardening on those. And the example I saw on "Maximus's" (MP's) Heym rifle was also more than fine.
