German-made Merkel 2000 Series over/unders are offered in 12, 16, 20 and 28 gauges, and for side-by-side aficionados, the Model 47 and 147E are available in 12 and 20 gauges. The more upscale Merkel 47SL and 147Sl have Holland & Holland-style sidelocks with the usual "safety" sear, fine trigger pulls and a broader canvas for engraving.
Also on GSI's menu are exquisite side-by-sides by Grulla from Spain. Grulla's 209 HL is a Holland & Holland-style sidelock, with traditional double triggers, ejectors, and straight-hand stocks executed in beautiful wood in 12, 16, 20 and 28 gauges.
