Yes, same here. I very much like the pre-war Merkel doubles in both SxS and O/U with the short bolster. The engraving I find to be one of the nicest I have seen, very well executed with and tasteful with a nice background. I would be very happy yo own that as well.

That is a nice rifle and reminds me of the very first double rifle I ever owned. They could be twins.

I parted with my rifle many years ago, but you can see photos of it posted by our member, Dale, who became the owner.

The similarity of its engraving to the one in the OP's link is remarkable.

Had the one Curl notes briefly before Dale. The pre-war Merkel 8X57JRs are sweet little DRs for sure. It's tempting.

Mark,

I hadn't known that double rifle went through your hands also.

Do you still have the Richard Knopf drilling? That's a combination gun worth keeping - I should have kept it myself.

I thought there might be some interest in my Krieghoff Ulm Primus over and under double rifle in caliber 7X65R, which is presently in the process of being converted to 8X65RS and equipped with a lower power Zeiss 1.5-6X36 scope. The rifle is fitted with hand detachable side locks.
