Certainly is an interestingly figured stock!

That is a lovely rifle with fantastic wood and lines that call to be hunted with.

With the second set of barrels in 7x57R , it does become quite handy

This rifle has been refurbished in Ferlach

Hi Adam,

Looks fantastic!

You don't want this one, sell it to me!

Can I ask. Is the photo with the rifle and scope the 7mm barrel version? Or is the .375 Flanged barrels set up for scope and open sights? If so I would love to see some test targets shot 1R, 1L, 2R, 2L, four shots on each target, shot with scope, then with open sights. To se how the regulation compares.

What is the regulations ammo or loads for each set of barrels, .375F and 7mm?

Thanks. Looks very nice and extremely useful. All you need extra is a set of shotgun barrels.

Love the wood on it, and the shape of the slim forend.

Hey John,
You know "anything at a price"...
Both barrel sets have QD mounted matching serial numbered steel Schmidt&Bender 4x36 scopes with N1 posts.
7x57R set with RWS soft points ( shoots great with scope but must still check open sites ).
375F set with Kynoch ammo (factory target has great group) but still working on handloads to match pricy Kynoch ammo.

Thanks Adam.

Nice setup, both sets of barrels coming with a suitable scope.

When you work out regulation loads it would be really nice to read how it all went. And if the scopes vs open sights do result in what sort of variation to the regulation and bullet impact locations.

Really useful hunting double rifle setup.

That is a beautiful bit of timber in that rifle Adam.

Well done on picking that rifle.
