Just watched the Gunblast vid. Can anyone tell me why they couldn't make the top barrel fire first?

    Now suppose, just thinking here  :-\, you had the top barrel (or both bottom barrels) relined to oh say .308, .223, .45-70 etc. You'd have a really nice "drilling" without the long wait from whoever still make them. Just thinking here.  :hmm    :coffee

    That was my thought as well.  After watching the video I don't think it will work with this gun, seeing how the barrels fire in sequence.  I would love for them to make one with either a selector or a separate trigger for the rifle barrel.  Something like that would have come in handy last month when I was out quail hunting (first hunting trip ever!).  There were absolutely no quail, but had I walked out there with a rifle I would have had 6 jackrabbits.

    Then what you need is a more traditional drilling.

    Found a surplus drilling that might work for you.

    Drilling guns are beautiful and purposeful, but my understanding was always that they're game-getters.  Why spend $3,000 for one extra barrel when you can get a combo gun or a barrel sleeve for a 12 gauge?

    My issue with drillings is that, if I invested $20k in a beautiful gun, I would be afraid to haul it around in the field.

    I need a couple of million dollars in my bank account to put these things in perspective, I guess.

    Update on the "Soon to be forgotten" triple barrel.  Now it has a neat detachable stock to convert it into a pistol grip gun or for short but immediately usable storage mode.

    From the link (emphasis mine):
    Quote
    J.P. Sauer Drilling 12GA/9.3x74R caliber. Rare WWII Luftwaffe drilling in beautiful condition with a few light handling marks. The bores are mint. The screws are still all indexed. A great piece in original unaltered condition. These guns were issued to North Africa bomber crews to be used as survival guns if the plane went down. This one is in pristine condition.

    Say what?  That's one of the dumbest things I've read in a long time.  A) If true, they'd have to also issue two kinds of ammo.  Not practical.  And still, three barrels for an entire bomber crew?  Does not make any sense from a military point of view, even if the guns were cheap, which they weren't.  B)  If not true, which is my personal opinion, that's one of the biggest, most unbelievable whoppers possible.  There is no reason it would have been done, so why even try to pass it off as true.  These were expensive, specialty guns.  This one is in great shape.  The attempted WWII reference is an insult to the intelligence of everyone reading the ad.

    I think I'd been looking for that clip for this thread.

    The LGS I used to work at had a Chiappa rep drop by with one. Apparently the wood sucked/looked bad. They also said the price (I think they told me it had an MSRP of ~$1600?) was way too high for something with a "meh" grade stock and little else than novelty value.

    Screw it though. If I had the scratch I'd order one. I collect oddball guns when/if I can.

    Whereas I have a CZ hammer gun with two barrels, nice wood, and a price of well less than half that. (good deal on GB)

    Seriously, I understand it has novelty appeal, but unless I lived in Britain, (and then it would need longer barrels) I can get a better three rounds out of a Benelli or Mossberg semi-auto, two or three times over, before I need to reload.

    Which brings up reloading...  How?  It is hard enough to learn to drop in two at a time, let alone three.  And if I have to drop in one at a time, I might as welll be loading them into the Benelli...

    All extremely valid points! From a practical standpoint there are issues.

    I'm not looking for practical here though. Also I don't think this shotty will sell for reasons other than range "toy" and eccentricities. Just my $.02 though; I don't mean to start an argument with you.

    Clearly, you were just shown the wrong drilling for your purpose

    http://www.gunsinternational.com/J-P-Sauer-16X16X22-Hornet.cfm?gun_id=100424943

    a pair of 16 gauge barrels with a 22 hornet underneath is what you need.

    Or here is a pair of 20 gauge barrels with a 7.65 Rimmed, but also a full length 22 hornet barrel insert.

    http://www.gunsinternational.com/Simpson-94E-Deluxe-3-bbl-Gun-Drilling-.cfm?gun_id=100437471


    Or why have 2 shotgun barrels, why not one 16 gauge shotgun, one 8mm mauser, and one 22 LR, for a measly $7K

    http://www.gunsinternational.com/FRANZ-NEUMANN-DBL-RIFLE-BOCH-DRILLING-8X57JR-X-22L-X-16GA.cfm?gun_id=100397863

    Actually, considering, a lot of the drillings I see in the $2000-$6000 range are quite beautiful, still in good shape, and pretty unique.  And $4000 is a heck of a lot different than $16,000

    $2500 for a 16x16x7mm mauser  http://www.gunsinternational.com/Carl-Stiegele-Guild-Rifle-Shotgun-Combination.cfm?gun_id=100408949

    $1600 for a 16x16x8mm mauser http://www.gunsinternational.com/Unknown-manufacturer-German-Drilling-16-gauge-over-8mm.cfm?gun_id=100442923   You can spend that kind of cash on a solid Remington BDL plus top line scope.
