Double rifles

The gun with two side-by-side barrels is based on one of the oldest hunting gun construction principles. Tradition, style and elegance live on. If one thinks of side-by-side guns, one imagines English lords in their tweeds, marching across the fields, their side-by-side shotguns over their shoulders. Or the big game hunter in Africa, hunting buffalo – his side-by-side rifle ready to fire.

Despite a technological preference for over-and-under guns, There is hardly a more elegant object than a light side-by-side shotgun. Their purpose is evident in their design: the responsive swing along the flight path of the wildfowl; stylish guns with a glorious past. Side-by-side rifles also have a lot to offer aesthetically; even though they have to meet particular physical challenges at the same time.
