I'm slowly accepting the fact that I'm secretly falling in love with double rifles. All options are still open, but I have narrowed down the selection to Krieghoff and Heym (89B). Blaser and Merkel might also be OK, but I haven't focused on them too much yet. Krieghoff is now taking lead over Heym mainly as I'm thinking to buy 2 sets of barrels. One in large bore true Africa caliber (like .470 NE) and one that I would mainly practice with and use for smaller game (for example 30-06 or similar). This set up would ensure that I get familar with the rifle and can afford to practice as much as I want + still have all teeth in place after long days in the range. A used double is also an option. But I want the fitting to be perfect so I would send the rifle back to the manufacturer for custom fitting the stock for me. Has anyone done this for a used double and does it make any sense according to your understanding? Another (useless) feature I want to have is color case hardening. Has anyone here a color case hardening in their gun? Is the finishing wearing off and how does it look after 20 years of usage? This will not be a show gun for me so I need something that will last normal usage with normal amount of care. Does anyone here know if color case hardening can be done to a used double? Color case hardening is not a must, but I simply like how it looks. Double with color case hardening doesn not require a lot of engraving especially if the wood is nice. In a gun I value low need for maintenance. I wish to take the gun to range or for a hunt (even in bad weather), clean and oil it and put it back to safe. Any additional maintenance is not appreciated. Shooting and hunting are my hobbies, not gun maintenance. Oiling the stock every now and then is OK. Are there doubles fitting to this criteria? Or does a double require more attention than a for example Winchester M70 Safari Express? Anyway, I'm trying to take first steps in the world of double rifles so all comments and suggestions are more than welcome. Feel free to recommend options and features. What are the options you would have in a double? Also if you know nice used double rifle being sold in EU, feel free to share a link or PM me for details. Thanks in advance for your comments!
