DOPPELBÜCHSDRILLING – “KING” NOT ONLY ON DRIVEN HUNT

If there is any “King” of hunting weapons, it is without doubt the Doppelbüchsdrilling/Double Rifle Drilling. Designed as the counterpart of the “normal” Drilling for hunting on big game, the Doppelbüchsdrilling belongs to the miracles of gunmaking. Against all physical principals, it’s makers build a gun, which shoots two rifled and one smooth barrel together. All done alone with human spirit, hands and eyes! Craftsmanship at it’s best, often completed with an outstanding engraving. Here you can admire four typical designs and actions of this combination guns:
