About Product

The hunt for dangerous game has its own set of rules. Rifles used for this type of adventure must fulfill very specific, demanding requirements. In addition to proven high-power, large game calibers, Merkel Safari grade double rifl es offer everything a hunter needs for a successful and safe Safari. Robustness, reliability and intuitive handling - these are the characteristics that matter when every split second counts. Merkel’s Safari rifl es are perfectly designed for the stringent demands of hunting dangerous game. Details such as the open sights and the design of the triggers are based upon one hundred years of experience producing these specialized hunting rifles. Locking mechanism: Merkel 140-2: Anson Deeley lockwork with cocking indicators to show when the gun is cocked. Merkel 160-2: Intricate Merkel side locks with safety catch levers. Breech: Steel action with Greener-style cross bolt and double conventional bottom bite. Very strong, long-lasting and solid. Trigger: Double trigger: Safety: Manual safety. Extractor: The strong extractor pulls the empty case out of the chamber every time. Sights: The Express ‘V’ sight with folding leaf is well suited for either quick or deliberate shots. Stock: A strong straight combed stock coupled with perfect balance is essential for quick instinctive shots when using open sights. An optional stock with hogback comb is available for hunters who prefer an optical sight. Interchangeable barrels: Interchangeable barrels in a variety of suitable calibers are also available for Safaris that combine the pursuit of dangerous game with plains game. Barrels: Octagonal barrel sets available as an option.
