Merkel Model 200E OU Shotgun, 12 Gauge

Merkel Model 200E OU Shotgun, 12 Gauge

When it comes to grouse and woodcock guns, a lot of hunters pass over twelve gauges. That’s a shame. Twelve gauge shotguns are the most versatile doubles out there. Size wise, I find twelve gauges feel better in my hands twenties. When their weight is right, I think they’re perfect for all kinds of upland hunting.

Another thing I like about twelves is their versatility. Because there’s so much ammo out there for them,  you can load a 12g  up for wild pheasants (1 1/8oz loads) or down for smaller game (try 7/8 oz loads). And if you want to shoot a few ducks, you can even pick some non-tox ammo (or steel if you’re shooting a modern 12).

This Merkel looks like it would be a great do-it-all double. With double triggers, ejectors, and 2 3/4″ chambers, it’s as versatile as any shotgun gets. And because it’s pretty light (6lbs 8oz.), you can carry anywhere, too.
