    I was reading African X mag and found an article about Bailey Bradshaw falling block double rifles. Also looked at his web site. Has anyone had any experience with these doubles?

    According to the web site they seem very reasonably priced ( $8500 for DG calibers up to 500 NE).

    I have been talking to Baily since his first pieces were show to the DRSS members at the DSC show three or four years ago. Thise first pieces were CNC cut from wood, and were 22 lR size!

    I have handled about every rifle he's made since that time, and let me tell you his rifles are top of the line, and you $8K price is his starting price for field grade rifles, and is a bargain that is very hard to pass. He will have a booth at the Dallas Safari Club show in January and it would be a very good idea to make that show if you are intrested in one of his rifles. He usually has a SHOW PRICE for rifles ordered at the show! This guy is not only a master gun maker, but a veryu goiod engraver, and a very nice person on top of all that!

    That Christmas time frame might be very optimistic. A local friend has had one on order for some time and it's just being started.
    But from what I've heard and the ones shown on the web, it'll be worth the wait. Hopefully his new 450 NE will be delivered before the fall hunting season.

    Maybe it was christmas 2015 ;)
    Anyway, there is not much written about the double.
    I havent found anything about anyone using it or hunted with it.
    I am convinced that it is a great weapon and that the craftmanship is outstanding.

    There are some already in service. I know of a Damascus framed 22 hornet and a 6.5X65? that I was offered.
    If you manage to get it by 2015 you'll be a happy camper with the rifle.
