Wow — here’s a really nice looking Merkel. Morphy’s Auctions has it and the sale is Saturday, July 31, 2016.

From I can see, this O/U is pretty much brand new, and its condition,  28″ barrels and straight grip make it a great find. The case and accessories are nice, too, and probably worth $750 on their own.

These Merkels are incredibly well made, and even though some can be a bit heavy, they usually have the feel and liveliness of much lighter guns. They lock up with double Kersten locks, an incredibly strong and reliable system.
