Merkel combines the traditional manufacturing methods of handcrafted hunting guns with the highest standards of quality and safety. Merkel manufactures its firearms following strict guidelines like their steel on steel principle and uses time-consuming processes like brush oxidization because it provides extra quality. The highly functional and reliable Merkel lock is a Suhl modification of the Anson & Deeley boxlock of 1875, with compression spring ejectors. Merkel's double triggers offer the simplest, quickest, and most reliable method for instant barrel selection. The 147 EL is manufactured with a Luxus checkered straight-grip walnut stock and features a silver nitride-finished receiver with beautiful engraving by master engraver Doreen Grill. This shotgun includes a cocking indicator, a metal bead sight, and fixed improved cylinder and skeet chokes. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
