Classically designed Merkel side by sides are the shortest, handiest, best balanced, and fastest-pointing rifle you can find to deliver two shots with great speed and reliability. The soldered barrels and the adapted 20 calibre receiver ensure an agreeable recoil due to the greater weight. The forward trigger has a set prepared base for the swing mount allowing the 140 to excel with the precision shot and extending the rifle's range. The pivot mount, which is a standard fixture, enables flexible use of different scopes. Calibered for powerful 500 Nitro Express ammunition, the 140 uses an Anson & Deely boxlock action with a Greener crossbolt and double bottom bite for added safety and dependability. The Turkish walnut stock features a pistol grip, a cheek piece, a hogback comb, and a rubber butt plate.
