You meen that if you fire just one barrel it ejects its case and not the unfired one ?
If so, I dont know. Have fired both barrels every time.
Got the rifle very late last fall and havent shot much with it yet.
Have to figure that out.
Snap caps will figure that out pretty quick.

Does the front trigger articulate?

Yes. Really don't want to have fired one shot and have a rifle eject both the empty and the unfired round as one reloads for a follow-up.

Interesting rifle. Looks like a good shooter. Looks like a sxs Ruger No. 1.

My understanding is non selective and depending on the force applied they extract or almost eject. Only "eject" when the barrels are tilted up the action opened with speed or force.

The rifle is beautiful and the initial accuracy test result looks good but I agree with @spike.t about the apparent logic of a falling block double. That being said, we all like different toys and I find it part of the fun on this forum.

Please give us a hunting report down the track.

Not everything makes sence and I wanted something different that makes peoples eyebrows go up.
And this peace of machinery looks good and it works.
I have enjoyed the process of ordering it and following its making with the gunsmith.
It took some time but it was worth waiting.

Being a No. 1 kind of guy, I think the rifle is brilliant!

But I also understand that it is clearly not for everyone...but what is?

I have been watching Bailey Bradshaw for some years.

He is a master of his craft.

I have thought for some time that I should commission a rifle soon...so I can enjoy it while I still can.

Then I put a deposit on a hunt...and buy a couple factory rifles...and.....

The making of the rifle is as in many cases a mix of craftsmen.
Barrels and action comes from Bailey Bradshaw.
Engraving is made by swedish engraver Stanley Stoltz.
Woodwork and everything else was made by master gunsmith P-O Stenmark from the small village Hjoggböle in the northern part of Sweden.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
