Ladies & Gents - I am hoping that someone can help me with the issue of putting a scope on a Merkel 141 in 9.3x74R or a 375 H&H Mag.

I am a bit of a purist and my Heym 88b in 470 NE is not scoped. But I am buying another double rifle (because IMO you cannot beat a double while on Safari) for my wife and she needs a scope. She knows how to shoot open sights but shoots much better with a scope.

I cannot sem to find out much about scope mounts for the Merkel, or double rifles in general.

Doe anyone know what mounts to use on a Merkel?

I do not want to take the rea sight off as I would like to use this as my Buffalo Rifle as well.

I appreciae any help. I have tried searching past forums but have not found the answer.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002.
