I assume that the Merkel S2 that you mentioned Steve Barnett having in the OP is the one I see listed for $9750 and described as "as new". It has a listed weight of 11 lb 4 oz which is quite a bit heavier than Marius' -- I'm not sure why the difference. Also the LOP is 14 3/4 inches

If I wanted a .500 NE double rifle, I'd buy this one.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a merkel. It’s a tool perhaps as opposed to a work of art such as a holland and holland from the turn of the century but I know of one with full kit. Shells , cleaning gear ,soft case box and Manuel etc for under 9 k. Duke with gulf breeze firearms has details. Best of luck with your search
Thank You foremost! .. oddly enough, I can not gain access to "Firearms" on his site ??? I just gave up on a really good sale (For Now) However, I'd like to see Duke's. The 140 i had on hold has a case colored receiver, not a huge fan, but they seem to be going in that direction?!?

I still like that Blaser! I do Thank all members that seriously took the time here, as I've received a wealth of information and correspondence. From links, to pm's that were willing to part with their collection, etc. The 500 search still continues...

Oops, I meant Blaser, of course.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
