There IS One American Maker of Double rifles whom l have personally had the pleasure of meeting ; Mr Butch Searcy. When l met him , he was building this 4 Gauge Double rifle . Beautiful pieces of Art.￼ The gun was heavy but comfortable to hold. Of course , such a caliber with those HUGE unjacketed lead bullets aren't really my thing. But his .470s and .500s are perfect tools for the Job !
