This is #6 of 10 in the special Safari series made last year commemorating the Elephant. It is chambered in the 500NE caliber. This special series made for the Merkel Emporium featured high grade wood, French Gray receiver, gold engraved Elephant and gold lettering, high-polish blue, and octagonal barrels.
These sold last year for $19,995. Merkel still has one available, reduced to $18,995 due to the strengthening of the dollar to the euro in the last year.
You could order up a Rigby double from California for $30-$50K, but it comes built on this Merkel action, one of the strongest and most accurate actions made.
I no longer have the cash for an Elephant hunt, so this rifle has to go. Also have ammo available to buyer. It is NIB and unfired Save big money on a double rifle of distinction.
I will ship direct as an individual to your FFL, including my photo DL and NJ Firearms ID card. If your state or dealer requires shipment FROM an FFL, such arrangements can be made.
