Merkel side-by-side shotguns have an outstanding reputation for quality workmanship and have achieved a long historical tradition as elegant game guns. Merkel offers the most extensive variety of boxlock and sidelock models, and is one of the few manufacturers that continue to offer each side-by-side model in 16 gauge. All models are hand engraved, hand checkered and come with traditional features such as Greener cross-bolt locks, receiver ledges and sideclips. Cold hammer forged barrels are standard on all Merkel side-by-side shotguns and offer higher surface hardness that extend the life of the bores and chokes. Merkel’s objective is to offer a combination of technical perfection, advanced design and aesthetic elegance by producing side-by-side shotguns that are handsome works of art that meet the most demanding requirements encountered in the field.
