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.

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
