Merkel 140 reviews

I just got myself a Merkel A140 .470 NE and can't wait to test it. Taking it this summer to my camp in Zimbabwe and most likely will leave it there to use when I go. I bought a couple of boxes of Hornady DGX and DGS, I'll tell you how they do.

Congratulations!!
 
I hear this a lot, but I wonder how much of it is real and how much just repetition of a story? The internet does that. In any event I am sure a bit of gunsmithing could solve it if it is there.
To put it to bed though please can I ask any of the Merkel double owners on here whether they have had any trigger, or other problems? Reason being we have a young learner PH who needs a double and the Merkel is so much more reasonable in SA.
i know this an old thread but the Merkle 140 cannot double fire unless the protective sear is broken. When I bought mine and asap sent it to JJ perodeau he told me it is a great feature they have but many are broken like mine…it was a fairly easy fix

Many broken like mine does not sound so good....
 
I had a merkle in 416 Rigby and never had an issue. I have had issues with doubling or a semi going full auto, almost always due to falulty sear engagement. This was usually due to " improving trigger pull/weight.
