Thomas Grey: How much of an everyday fellows fortune must one spend to procure a swanky Merkel like this?
patrick richard: gros blaireau
logan pollock: I always liked the 9.3x 74 for North American hunting. I think the least I ever paid was 73 bucks for twenty rounds. I had an A. Zoli and a couple Valmet 412 models. I actually preferred the Valmet. The Leupold Vari-x II 1-4x scope worked like a dream, even for very hurried shooting. I never had a Merkel because of the price and because I was disappointed by a couple of their shotguns.
remchuck: the rifle is a thing of beauty. looks like a lot of fun to shoot as well.
tom smyth: Wtf Pete you look like an idiot
Kristoffer Skjelbred: Close the gun propper!! dont smack it together like that you dork
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.
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...
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
