IWA EXPO Cape Gun (Combination Gun) - 20 Gauge / 7x57R Side by Side (SxS) with 23.6" barrels. 

Merkel side-by-side hunting guns have an outstanding reputation for quality workmanship and have achieved a long historical tradition as elegant game guns. Merkel offers the most extensive variety of boxlock and sidelock models, and is one of the few manufacturers that continue to offer a traditional SxS Capegun (Combination Gun)! All Capegun models are hand engraved, hand checkered and come with traditional features such as Greener cross-bolt locks, receiver ledges and sideclips. Cold hammer forged barrels are standard on all Merkel side-by-side hunting guns and offer higher surface hardness that extend the life of the rifling, bores and chokes. Merkel's objective is to offer a combination of technical perfection, advanced design and aesthetic elegance by producing side-by-side Capeguns (combination guns) that are handsome works of art that meet the most demanding requirements encountered in the field.
