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.

Merkel's double triggers offer the simplest, quickest, and most reliable method for instant barrel selection.
