    Default Double Rifle

    Hi everyone this weekend I had the pleasure of spending 3 days at the DSC Convention and had a Blast. But what I'm posting about is a Rifle that I seen there that really caught my eye. I have heard several times that the double rifle is the perfect African gun well this weekend I seen what I beleive to be the perfect Double Rifle well almost perfect it was a left handed double rifle and I am right handed thank goodness or Mr. Plastic would have been pulled. The rifle I am talking about is a 375 H&H Double Rifle that holds 8 rounds, you read right 8 rounds and I have never seen one like this before, a double rifle, bolt action, 2 in the chamber and 6 in the Magazine never even heard of a rifle like this double triggers 1 for each barrel fire both barrel eject 2 casings and load 2 more rounds with each time you work the bolt. Sorry I don't have pictures because it was a beautiful rifle with English Walnut stock and engraved action my camera quit working on me and me with a 500 dollar 12MP smart phone hanging on my hip didn't even think to use it(brain fart). Has anyone seen one like this before? Who ever came up with this idea is a Genius giving you the best of both worlds.

    Gday Bluey

    I'm not sure of the brand thats why I was wondering if anyone else had seen one before. The Gentlemen said if you only fire one barrel it would eject both chambers to prevent jaming.
    as for the cost at first I was scared to ask as it was laying next to a $175,000 USD double rifle in a Rigby but I had to know so later I ask when he was alone just in case I passed out when he told me, but to my surprise he said those rifles run from $9,000 to $11,000 depending on the engraving.

    I think this rifle discussion is interesting, I would like to hear more, how reliable is the gun? Accuracy? Brand?

    Again not sure about the brand but a very solid gun the guy let me fondle it btw it had stainless barrels so my didn't cause it to rust. I worked the action and it was very smooth again if it had been a right handed Rifle I would have been able to tell you a lot more as it would be setting in my lap right now.

    I saw an article about one of these a year or two ago. It was made to order for an Arab prince, with gold, engraving and whathaveyounot, and the price tag was close to the annual budget of some small nations. If I find the article again, I will post a link.

    i have looked at them at sci a couple of times and was told by a gunmaking friend that the design and engineering was clever, but they didnt do anything for me at all. too heavy and unwieldy for me.

    Heck no on buying a gun like that (lol), I was more interested on how the gun was designed? engineered? accuracy?
    I'd love a .404 Jeffrey with cross bolts but can't justify paying $2800 for one...it was closer to $1000, I might find it interesting~

    I have also seen a rifle similar to this. I believe it was either a Krieghoff or Blaser that was made in Germany. I was lucky enough to tour both factories while I was stationed there, but can't remember which one I saw the rifle at.
