Hey guys my father who was born in Poland learned to shoot with a combination shotgun/rifle. It was German and no clue what type. He is so obsessed with combo guns and has been looking into getting one. I'm just wondering if there are any accurate ones with a 12 gauge and the other cartridge big enough to efficiently hunt deer. The only ones I can think of is a savage 24 but Iv heard their not too accurate. I would appreciate the help so I can possibly surprise the old man. Thanks guys.

I've owned a couple combination and drillings over the years.

Mostly German guild guns. (guild guns are built by makers who often do work for name manufacturers, metal worker/stock maker/engraver, all do the parts to assemble together)

Sometimes you have to be careful of calibers if you only want to buy ammo at the local store.....that usually doesn't work all that well to regulate.

You can get in the game for $12-1400 for a servicable field gun; but most better examples are closer to 3K. Sauer is a common name for used examples.

One gun you could chase for a more modest price is a Valmet/Tikka - 412 or 512.....used around 800.....

Russ Gould is an importer.....he sells as doublegunhq on some of the gun trader sites.

They regulate well being adjustable, and you can add a second barrel set in numerous caliber choices.

I sold my last drilling about a year ago and just need to scrape a bit more together for a Blaser BBF 97.

I'll add......

A drilling is 3 barrels.....2 shotgun and a rifle typically.

A combination is shotgun over rifle in an O/U design.

A cape gun is shotgun/rifle in a SxS orientation

There are other options. Adding a sleeve rifle barrel into a drilling shotgun tube is common. Having 2 rifles and a shotgun is also availible.

I wonder if that 10 lbs is a misprint at the posted link.

Those are made in the same plant as Brno's combo and those are about 7.5 lbs. The Brno has set trigger for the rifle and a 1/4 rib.

Geeze at 10 lb's it must handle like a brick.

Are you sure about that? The USSG gun is made by Bakail (Russian), The BRNO (new or old) are made in the Czech Republic...now by CZ.

I was just thinking of selling my cape gun this morning. It is a Pieper with a 12 gauge barrel and the other side is 360 express aka 9.3 x 56mm. You can load 38-55 or 375 Win brass to the right specs to fit. I have ammo and dies and can give you my reloading info to go with it. If anyone is interested at $1500. Let me know if you want to see pics.
