Wondering how easy it is to rotate the action. Seems to me in the natural course of hunting and handling the gun it is quite possible to slightly rotate it and take it out of battery unknowingly.


Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Not that easy. It is hard to explain, but, when the gun is out of battery you can tell immediately.
Would be interesting to see one that had seen very heavy use, 150 years from now.
Keep in mind the gun is built of hardened S7 tool steel. That is tough stuff.

Best,
Ted

I met Mr. Hoenig on several occasions in Las Vegas and these guns are truly works of art and very fine quality. I considered purchasing one on several occasions over the years. Both were lightly used 28 bore guns with 29 and 30 inch barrels with solid ribs. They were exquisite and handled great. I hesitated long enough that someone else purchased them and saved me from myself. You know how that goes!

I've seen and handled a rifle and it was surprisingly ergonomic, quick to handle and operate and quite accurate and superbly made... but the design leaves me cold.

The Hoenig action is still being built Hoenig. I looked at a 20 gauge O/U at a gunshow about 5 years ago. It was different but well built.

Ron Spomer has a youtube demonstrating and detailing Hoenig's round gun. Interviewing George Hoenig he says he is retired and there will be no more. Spomer does a wonderful job showing, shooting and explaining the gun. Look it up~~
