About Product

The single shot ‘Merkel’ with the legendary Jäger tilted block breech - conceived and patented in Suhl in 1906. This breech action is extremely rugged and long-lasting. Locking mechanism: Single lock hand-cocking system with an automatic safety device that, while opening, automatically de-cocks the gun. The lock is cocked only immediately before the shot by means of the easy-tooperate thumb slide and is then ready to be fired. Breech action: Receiver made of durable lightweight Dural with Jäger tilted block breech. Completely torque-free and extremely rugged. All single shot K1 and K2 rifles are equipped to accept the quick detachable SSM. Finely tuned adjustable trigger: The trigger weight can be adjusted using a small lever located on the trigger guard. The K2’s steel action and the octagonal barrel make for a wellbalanced rifl e that is a little heavier than the K1. The octagonal barrel is a distinctive feature of the K2 that emphasizes the traditional line of this ‘Carpathian rifle’.
