„Wild Boar Fever“ is probably the most popular hunting movie in recent years. The fifth part of the cult film series once again shows impressively big wild boar. But the Merkel Helix plays a prominent role this time: hunters used different models of the bolt-action rifle for this movie. Thus the Helix could uphold its reputation for extremely fast straight-pull bolt action. >> Trailer on youtube – from now on “Wild Boar Fever 5” will be available in stores. A longer special edition of the trailer is shown on the Hunters Video website. All you need is a free registration.more
Three brand new Helix models named Noblesse, Alpinist and Sportster attracted at the IWA tradefair in Nuremberg great interest. Merkel has developed a functional modular system around its intuitive linear bolt-action rifle. Thanks to the take-down system each Helix can be optimized for different purposes in a few steps. For example by offering different stock and barrel variations: Elegant wood, thumbhole stock, or more robust and lightweight plastic with adjustable cheek piece. Merkel offers additionally new barrel versions in all Helix calibers - particularly fluted and semiweight versions. The news brochure is now available for >>scrolling or >>download.more
