    What do you all think of the double barrel bolt action from Szecsei & Fuchs? It looks very interesting, but some of the choices in the design seemed odd, especially the lack of controlled round feed. Video is linked below.

    If the action was made a little wider, it could be possible to have counter-rotating bolts using a gear or cam between them. Then they could incorporate the controlled round feed that us bolt action hunters know and love so dearly.

    Solution to a non-existent problem? Plus, I think it adds the issue of launching both fired and unfired rounds should you fire just one shot (the narrator was somewhat unclear on that, but I can't see how one avoids it).

    Love the ingenuity, but no thanks. Want a double, go with the tried and true. Just seems too complicated and who would want to work on that if you have an issue.

    Stunning guns, although the optic choices and engraving are certainly not most people's "cup of tea".

    I would hate to have to sort out a "jam" with the double bolt gun in a tight situation!

    He makes interesting rifles.
    I prefer the SxS though.
    The most elaborate fancy-work on some makes them suitable for exhibition cases only. Nice work though.

    Were these pix taken at a gun show or his shop?
