Model 141

The utmost slimline Merkel 141 side-by-side rifle with its compact receiver has very attractive and fine outer contours. Handling of this beautiful rifle is of utmost ease due to the short barrel length of only 55cm (21.65in). Depending upon the calibre and the wood for the stock, the 141 Rifle only weights 3.0kg (6.6lb). At option, the 141 alos comes with ejectors. The beavertail forend ensures a safe and comfortable grip of the slender barrel set. Another interesting technical novelty iis the muzzle adjustment which permits exact co-adjustment of the barrels iin case of a change in the type of ammunition fired or in case the scope has been changed. The special feature of this adjustment is the fine adjustment both vertically and horizontally.
