If you’re looking for a nice O/U, here’s a 16 gauge German double that deserves your attention. This Merkel was made in 1951, and even though it’s 60+ years old, it looks pretty much new. These older Merkel over-unders are solid and incredibly well made. Even though they look a little beefy, they are surprisingly nimble shotguns. […]

It’s a well made gun in great shape, and it’s in the greatest gauge ever made. I like sixteens. Because they tend to be smaller than twelves but bigger than twenties, […]
