A quality insert for a drilling is adjustable but they are pricy. Some inserts are not adjustable and cheaper.

Yeaaa, the Krieghoff inserts can be adjusted to any point of impact, and they always come back to the same point of aim when you put them in.


I have two of them for this drilling, one in 22 LR and the other in 22 WMR, they shoot very good.

I'm sorry. I just don't get drillings. They look like monstrosities.

Some are bulky and heavy. But a lot are as nimble as a fine birdgun. You should look at a few. I like the Krieghoffs best.

I will admit that some of them, especially the German ones, have some fine artistry to them, but to me, they are just like a Swiss Army Knife. Not really great for anything.

For instance: Since when is a single shot 12 gauge a really first rate shotgun for real any world hunting? Answer (based on my 55 years of hunting) Never. If I am hunting Canada Geese, do I want a single shot 12? Nope. If I am hunting running rabbits, do I want a single shot 12? Nope. And even if I am hunting the lowly fox squirrels, do I want a single shot 12? Nope. Exact same thing holds true with a .22 LR.

Now a single shot center-fire rifle for big game, yes I get that. But not with a shotgun barrel and a rimfire barrel welded to it.


So, personally, I think that many folks are just enamored with the "gadgetry" of drillings.

Well manny if you have a drilling set up like DMs you can shoot any of them that presents itself. If you leave out the small game just take out the insert from the right shotgun barrel and you have a double shotgun and a high power rifle. If your hunting dangerous game load slugs into the shotgun barrels and use the rifle barrel for the first shot and a slug if you donít kill it clean.

Not many scoped hunting guns that weigh 7 # that are that versatile.

Key word here is look. That a perception based on visual observation from a distance. If you stay away from the 12 Ga. and handle 16 ga drillingís over a 7x57R barrel I believe you will find them very balanced and that the handle extreamly well. Get someone to show you how to use the controls and practice until itís second nature and by then you will be a convert to hunting with the drilling.

Then sell all your other guns. And buy a second drilling so you have a spare and hunt the rest of your life. Yeah you will have a chunk of money invested in your 2 guns but you will also enjoy looking at it while your sitting on your stand. It will be a thing of beauty. A art form if you please.
