Toozman: I beautiful double rifle set up. It would be a perfect one rifle battery for Africa. The 9.3 x 74 may be too light for some areas regulations for dangerous game, however shot placement with a 9.3 x 74 or it's magazine rifle counterpart 9.3 x 62 will take any game on the planet. For the person who loads their own ammunition the ability to adjust the regulation to develop loads for different game would be a great help but you really need to know what you are doing.
Kenneth Noisewater: There is no way I would be paying $6,500+ for a double rifle that you have to regulate yourself. At that price you may as well get a properly soldered gun.
slider65: Ejector is pretty much standard these days on all dangerous game rifles as is manual Safety as you don't want to loose time mucking around dumping spent cases from the chambers and reloading or having to remember to flick the safety off when you have something like a cape buffalo charging in on you.
skyym3: Wait a minute, you are telling me that your queen allows you to have a weapon that is capable of taking life. What is this world coming to. I mean those were actual metallic cartridges that this bloke was shooting. I did not see any powder horns or patches or ramrods or pieces of flint. I mean, you could possibly fire off eight to ten really fast projectiles off within one minute or so. This is unacceptable, absolute cowdung. I think the royal family better sit down for a spot of tea and reconsider the freedoms they are allowing the lowly subjects. What is this world coming to when any person can get there hands on a tool that could hurt, kill or maim another living creature in Europe. All joking aside, this is a very nice rifle. That being said, something is wrong when other equal individuals dictate what their peers can and cannot own or have in their possession. This is why my ancestors risked there lives and sailed across a vance body of water to the unknown so they could choose what was good for themselves and what was not. We are living in a technological futuristic world our ancestors could not even dream about. I think it is time we all grew up and started to think and live for ourselves. Cheers
Benni Svensson: the way he slams the poor rifle shut every time makes me want to hit him in the face, you don't do that!
furthermore a scope like that is in no way optimal for a driven hunt, especially not wild boar, a big cumbersome 56mm scope is a bad choice for a driven hunt, it makes the rifle unbalanced and the the zoom is too big, 1-6 would be ideal, the S&B classic 3-12x56 is a great scope for stalking roe deer or for shooting boar feeding on a field at night with only moonlight but for a driven hunt a scope that size is just about useless...
nightstick007 nightstick007: my prefer this..very cool!!
NormanMatchem: Very cool! I'd prefer a Lee Enfield though personally. To each their own :)
BAMBI243: why does the commentary open with 'something different for the UK market' when most double rifles are British
kopjesenseo: what a sound that rifle has power!!!!
adrian teodor: Me gusta el rifle exprés superpuestos browning
cookervillpop101: i want one
mchughcb: Dear GunMartTV. To unload my Blaser double rifle you just tilt it. Thats the beauty of the 9.3x74R. Its rimmed so it just falls out. Almost as fast as an ejector. You should not need to pull the cases out as was demonstrated in this video. Also using a 3-12 on a double rifle is probably not the best choice either. A 1-6x24 Z6i is a much better choice.
timmytyphoon: That is a beautiful rifle with the grace romance of a proper safari rifle but without the bone shattering recoil. I would have to say though if it's quick follow up shots you want, a semiautomatic is hard to beat. Browning makes one in some very heavy calibers that would be well suited to all but the biggest game.
dfgsdfg84: In germany they are allowed too!
Sandhu Bhupinder: whatever this is a good double rifle by my standarards
Magico070: Yes, you are right, in Italy as well. Actually semiauto rifles are the standard for driven game there. Semiautos can be quite accurate nowadays and rifles like the Benelli ARGO also have free floating barrel! They are not allowed in UK and in some eastern European places (by local gamekeepers not by law).
Henrik Månsson: they are allowed in sweden last time i checked and sweden is a part of europe france allows them and many more countries in europe allows them so they are not banned in all of europe
Magico070: The only real alternative to a double rifle in heavy woodland is the semiauto. Really you have 2-3 seconds many times and this is not enough for a second shot with bolt action. However semiauto are not allowed anywhere in Europe. I often use an old Rem 742.
mcjerkenstein: I personally have never hunted driven game and so maybe for that purpose a double gun could be better. I also agree that a shorter barreled rifle's ballistic do suffer somewhat and that felt recoiled is increased with a lighter rifle but it would be the same case for both bolt-guns and double guns right? I think doubles have niche purpose but where I hunt in the states they would be impractical.
