Here’s a great looking over-under at a very fair price. These Merkels are extremely well made, and it’s rare to find on in 20 gauge with a straight grip, double triggers, and a nice long length of pull. The price looks very fair, too.

According to Hallowell.com, Merkel’s 201-E was the one up from the lowest-grade O/U that the company made after the war. I was built on a Blitz action with two Kersten locks and biteless underlugs. You can read more about the Merkel grades here.
