And I always wonder why one has to have a "brush" gun, a bean field gun ect… WHEN, I have one gun for EVERYTHING, I've killed deer/moose/bear in the brush, and deer/caribou/moose out over swamps and about every where else with it...


IF I'm buying a DR, I don't want to see an animal at 100 yards or 150 yards and have to say, "ooooops, wish I would have paid more and got something that would shoot accurate out to 200 yards".


After having said that, some of the oldest, biggest caliber DR's weren't regulated super well, as back then, you could get much closer to what ever you were going to shoot than most hunting today.


Much of the African big game shot back then had never even seen a human, and for sure never seen or smelled a white man.

I seem to remember that several years ago, the Cabelas catalog use to sell something called the Kodiak Double Rifle. It was a black powder muzzleloader. It think is was .50 caliber.

So, a cheap solution would be to buy one of those, shoot .45 bullets in it using plastic sabots with light loads, and "pretend" it is a nice double rifle brush gun.

If you can put two shots in a 6 inch paper plate at 50 yards, I think you would have to call it good!

OR, Pastorp, you keep telling us how extremely old you are, which means you ain't gonna be around much longer, so just pull $30,000 out of the bank and have someone make you a .30-30 double, but tell them that you need it REALLY QUICK!

I'm sure that your wife can get the $30,000 back by listing it on the WTS board here, after you are gone. :-)

I can buy the double I want for about $5000. But for my own reasons I’ll never do it I’ll just do like you and talk about it till I die. And my wife can use the money to nuke me and scatter my ashes at the old RR crossing up Gum Slough.

As my remains slowly make their way down Gun Slough to the Witholchee river and then to the Gulf of Mexico she can use the rest of the money to celebrate my homegoing with friends & family. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust don’t ya know.

I always wanted a double gun with 22 rimfire over 30-30 and some scope/sight that would allow zero for both barrels. I have seen some triples with one of two shotgun barrels sleeved for rimfire. They were very heavy and much much $$$.

Very Nice drilling DM, but Mine is bigger.....
Valmet 412 9.3x74DR or the 12/9.3x74r combo isn't bad either.



For regulation purposes the O/U DR with a regulation adjustment is a very flexible option if you change loads or brands.

How the heck do you regulate the .22lr with the rifle cartridge in that setup?

You adjust the insert to the point of aim.

Gotcha. Didn't know they were adjustable, but makes sense.
