Double of the Day
      #4431 - 17/10/03 12:55 AM

The Double of the Day

In order to entertain our double rifle connoisseurs I have unashamedly raided the public domain of the internet.

Here bringing to you pics of double rifles, big bore and smaller, daily or thereabouts.

________________________________

.500/.465 Nitro Express Holland & Holland

The first. An early sidelock Holland & Holland from 1923 in .500/.465 Nitro Express. With hand detachable locks this Dominion grade double rifle has 26" barrels, double triggers, ejectors twin folding and one standing leaf express sights and a flip up moon sight. The rifle is also cased in its original leather case.







PS Some of these rifles have been sourced from classified advertisements. If you have a serious interest in any please PM me and I will pass on the details of where it can be enquired about.

      #4785 - 06/11/03 01:41 AM

Defourney Drilling 8x60mm, 8x60mm & 20 gauge

This drilling would have to be an ideal rifle for driven game. Side by side 8x60mm rifle barrels plus a 20 gauge shottie for the flying and small stuff

I think I will take the 600NE Purdey double. Actualy ,I might take two and keep one as a spare in case I misplace one. I wonder how often guns of this quality would be used in the field.

That rifle was advertised for a mere US$395,000. So why not take three and bargain them down to a cool mil for the three.

In answer to your question, probably never.

NitroX, Beautiful. Thank you for taking the time to find these DG photos. I placed several of them in my computer screen saver. By the way - who did you get to take a picture of you pointing those big bores? LOL. Best Regards, Wes.

Donít be too quick to think some great doubles donít make their way to a bush camp. It is the cheap part of the excessive.
