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 140 uses an Anson & Deely boxlock action with a Greener crossbolt. The forward double trigger has a set prepared base for the swing mount, meaning the rifle also excels at precision shots. The 140 comes standard with a Turkish walnut pistol grip, hogback comb stock with a beavertail forend and the laser-cut checkering is applied in a conventional point pattern. It also features innovative mechanical adjustments for vertical and horizontal alignment of the barrels, which can be adjusted by a factory trained service technician to regulate both barrels to the same point of impact when changing ammunition or optical sights without the need for re-soldering. The pivot mount, which is a standard fixture, enables flexible use of different scopes. This rifle includes open sights, a manual safety, and the original factory box. Its wood and metal are in very good condition and its bore is in excellent condition.
