    Just wandering if any company’s in the US makes a double barrel rifle.

    I have been seeing a lot of these guns on the Outdoor Channel; they have all been used in Africa. I came across a maker Europe, but can’t find any in the USA.

    Any info will help.

    Thanks

    Greg I may be wrong but I think all of the doubel barrel big game rifle makers were English.

    Bubbajum my gun digest doesn't show any US made double rifles but there is a lot of stuf out there most of it about the price of a car or a home.There are a couple Czech brands that are resonable.

    Thanks guys for answering my question.

    I think that those guns are way out of my price range.

    The only double barrel rifles that are currently sold that I know of are muzzleloaders.

    Savage/Stevens marketed over/under guns that were chambered rifle barrel over shotgun barrel. I have a couple of them. Both of mine are .22 over .410 but they made everything from that one to 30/30 over 20 ga. The going price for these now is about $250 and up to about $450.

    Thanks for the link. I came across the Merkel brand and it was love at first sight.

    While they are not made in the U,S,, they can be had here. Remington imports these. I know nothing about them. The thing to watch is point of impact on each barrel with the single sight (both barrels hitting close togrther, as opposed to a several inch difference between them). If I were in the market for a double rifle, I would search reviews and first hand accounts from people who has expierience with the Spartan double rifle. Jimmy
