A modern, practically oriented shotgun rifle with double lock, hand cocking, and exposed rifle barrel – such is the concept behind the Merkel B3 rifle shotgun. The B3 is uncocked and returned to safety by means of the double-lock hand-cocking system. Additional safety when opening the breech lock is provided by the upper trigger rods and safety bars, as well as the automatic decocking procedure. The double-lock system makes two rounds available in rapid succession. The classic combination with the tried and proven 12 shot gauge is the most common "combined model" for good reason. The steel-shot firing shotgun barrel combined with a free-floating rifle barrel and a highly durable Jäger tilting-block action is a universal hunting solution that requires no gun-related compromises.
The 55 cm long, adjustable barrel combination consists of a 12/76 gauge shotgun barrel and a free-floating rifle barrel for high precision and good second-shot behavior. As standard, it is designed for SAM (Suhler tip mount). The front trigger features a backward set trigger for precise shooting. The stock features a pistol grip, a Bavarian cheek piece, and a hog back and is topped off by a rubber recoil pad.
