That is fantastic. It is not something I would normally consider even if I could afford it. Yet, just looking at it gives me second thoughts. Pretty women and beautiful guns and fast cars, I suppose one could have worse weaknesses.

I hope someone with a little extra dough enjoys the set soon. It is a shame to see such a collection just sitting there. Though I hope whoever buys it uses it once in a while too. Either way, thank God for capitalism and craftsmanship.

Considering what you are getting for the money, I'd say it was pretty good value.

Add up the costs of the individual firearms that this represents, consider the amount of hand fitting to regulate the two joined barrels (that is, getting them to shoot to the same point of aim) and the fact that all of the firearms will feel the same and it is cheap.

If I was in a position to buy it, the cash would be on its way ...

Sell the Mustang and buy something that will, with a little bit care and cleaning, will outlast you and your grandchildren.

A thing of beauty is a joy to behold forever.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful ... really wish that I had enough money to buy it !

Phil, the Mustang set me back $2500, not $57,000.

Does it come with a long trip to Africa?

jsid-1256741569-614372  Kevin Baker at Wed, 28 Oct 2009 14:52:49 +0000

For another $57k.

Odd as it may sound, $57k is a pretty fair deal for what you're getting there.

A nice Heym stack-barrel double rifle will set you back $15k-$20k, and that's with just the one set of barrels.

And it's a one-of-a-kind, too.

Go to Champlin Firearms and look in the gun vault.


It's in Enid, Oklahoma, and browsing in the gun vault, which is a large room full of things to drool over, is invited. Been there, done that.

But you can browse online, too. Just follow the "gun vault" link.

Here is a sample. Enjoy.

Does this mean that it's the drooling that's mandatory?


jsid-1256748840-614393  DJ at Wed, 28 Oct 2009 16:54:00 +0000

No, but it's likely.

"the Mustang set me back $2500, not $57,000".

So? Have you never heard of a down payment??? >};o)

The Africa trip doesn't have to cost that much, if you do a little homework first.

There is probably no game you couldn't take with that; the combinations are excellent. It is almost Elmer Keith's "one Gun"

A lot of PH's I spoke with didn't like the overunders, because you have to break it harder to eject the bottom shell- me, I can't see as it would be much different. And the overunder frame is more rugged for the thumpy calibers.

The perfect gun for Liberals!
