Manny,

Ask DM sometime to tell you the story about his drilling. How he bought it and over time built it into the fine gun it is today.

I give credit to DM for mentoring me into the world of drilling’s. I know I was a pest for a while with my questions. But he’s was a great help and shortened the learning curve for my journey into the combination/drilling gun world.

I agree, they are ugly.
Now a sleek 20 gauge SxS, that's a beautiful gun.

I think drillings came from the habit of Europeans NOT going deer hunting, or quail hunting or squirrel hunting; It came from just "going hunting" where they killed everything from a boar hog to a rabbit on one trip. Them folks ate everything including song birds.

So, I consider a drilling, a status thing among other drilling owners, which is fine, it's sorta like a drilling club.

I was into bamboo flyrods, but They are impracticable in the real world of graphite rods and floating lines.

So, to each his own.

I did not see that anyone pointed out that the term "drilling" has become a generic (and inaccurate) for different types of combination guns which actually have more accurate names.
A drilling has three barrels. The German word for three is "drei".....a three barreled gun is a drei-ling.
The word for four is "vier".....the firearm pictured earlier has four barrels and is not a drilling; it is a vierling.
Guns with more or fewer barrels have other names.

Actually, they were used on "driven hunts". You went to your stand with a drilling, and the "drivers" could push anything from a pheasant to a deer or hog or ?, by you . With a drilling you was ready for what ever came through.


MANY moons ago, I went on this hunt miles and miles out in the bush, close to 200 miles from the nearest road. I took a decent moose with the rifle bbl. on my drilling,





and then I proceeded to jump shoot several ducks for supper after that! Some mid days, I would slide the insert bbl. in, go for a walk and shoot some grouse with the 22lr for supper. What's not to love?


Some drilling weigh under 7 pounds, I'd call that pretty "sleek"...
