Drilling 96K

The basis Merkel drilling is built around the 96K three-lock system; this gun is the all-rounder in the small game hunting ground. The system is a technical delicacy, which makes drillings as elegant as they are efficient. The Blitz locks are controlled via the three-position cocking slide on the stock tang. The front trigger is fitted with a set trigger for the precision shot. Depending on the position of the cocking slide, the right barrel or lower barrel can be fired in the engaged position.
