    I want one soooo bad! If I had that kind of money I would definitely get one. Then again, I suppose if I had that kind of money I'd get a lot of things.

    I wonder if they would make it in any non-magnum calibers, like 8mm or something?

    Neat gun and good looking, but even if I had that extra $35,000 I could think of better things to spend it on, like 35 guns without all of the embellishment.

    Yeah if was only a multi billionaire id put down the bills to get one. It is a cool design. I like seeing the two shells eject from both sides. Does anyone know what cartridges its chambered in? I can't access that site for some reason.

    375 H&H

    Along with your rifle you'll need a shotgun from the US distributer of these fine rifles.

    That rifle is a work of art. :cool:

    Though...I can't help but think that the rate of fire that this rifle offers doesn't match that of the Izhmash Tigr-9, which fires the 9.3x64mm Brenneke round (comparable to .375 H&H Mag).

    The Tigr, of course, on the open market would probably cost $800.00 or so, compared to $30K and up.

    But with an exquisite weapon like this double barreled bolt gun, simple utility isn't the point. A Honda Civic will get you to the grocery store just as well as a Porche, but they're not really the same, are they? :)

    I was just talking about a double barrel bolt action the other day with a friend haha. I thought about how it would be a relatively neat rifle to come across. Cool video!

    .458 Win Mag
    .458 Lott

    Just checked out the website. Absolutely beautiful rifles, as in works of art. It would be incredible to have one in the safe but I'm not willing to sell all my other firearms to get one.... or would I... not. :p:D

    If they made one in the Barnes .416 I'd be all over it.

    An interesting rifle to look at, and interesting rifle to see fired, but without handling the rifle, don’t know if this is an optimum solution.

    I have never owned a double rifle, but have handled a couple. A principal characteristic about a decent double rifle is mega power in a balanced lightweight package. A top break double is quite compact. A bolt gun in the same caliber weighs about the same, the action is longer, but you only have one round in the chamber.

    I would assume that a bolt action double rifle would be heavier than the traditional double, because of the weight of the bolt action. Also, feed and extraction have to be carefully engineered into any magazine fed weapon. Just little variations in feed angle, magazine lips, magazine height in weapon, can cause a stoppage; there are lots of variables to control. Feeding two rounds at the same time, well making a reliable system would be quite an achievement.

    If I was given one for free, I would most certaintly give it a test drive.
