11.03.15, Merkel NEWS 2015

The goal of the broad-based stock development was a complete collection of rifles for huntresses. Special stocks were respectively developed for the Helix bolt-action rifle, the K3 single-shot rifle and the B3/4-Line. The new rifle models are called Lady DS referring to a play on words in French: It uses the linguistic consonance of déesse (meaning goddess) and the letters D and S. In fact, even if the new rifles do not promise a divine shooting position, they do offer a considerable aid in achieving it.

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.

29.08.12, The ultimate shooting system

Nick Harvey from the Australian Sporting Shooter magazine has tested the Helix. In a three-page-report he explains, that he ist impressed by accuracy, flexibility and intuitive handling of the new rifle concept: „Merkel’s RX-Helix represents a new
flexibility in parts interchangeability. A single receiver serves as the basis for a
multi-barreled rifle in standard or magnum calibres, but the changeover can be made
faster and more easily than ever before.“
