It's new to me.
Huh, first for me as well. Pretty cool
Is the manufacturer pronounced "Fucks and Sexy"?
I just said this out loud at work
That's pretty cool they got Harrison Ford to do the demo for the camera.
Doesn't Blaser make one as well?
I've seen something like this before, but the one I saw had TWO bolts. So you had to eject the cartridge from bolt 1 and then reach over and work the 2nd bolt. it was weird.
That's what I was expecting before I watched the video.
interesting from an engineering perspective, I guess, but to me it falls under the category of "that's nice. What's the point, again?"
I could be wrong, but for hunting some big game in Africa don't you have to have a double gun or something? Or is that something from years ago?
Now it is a damn cool way to do a double barrel gun though.
I'd buy one.
In many countries, there are minimum caliber requirements for certain types of game, but I can't think of a required action type.
If I want a double rifle, I'll get a double rifle.
If I want a bolt-action, I'll get a bolt-action. Getting both just makes the whole thing that much more awkward. Plus heavy. Imagine that thing with 3+1/3+1 of, say, a .458 WinMag. It'd be a damn beast to carry.
A double rifle allows for a faster follow up shot. That double bolt-action would allow for a faster follow up shot + more capacity.
And now you have the big bore rapid follow up of a double with the faster reload of a bolt. Definitely see your point about weight though.
Damn impressive all the same
since this is german i bet it weighs close to one of the .338/light barrett type rifles
you don't have to have a double rifle, but I think they are used fairly often. quick follow up shot
now you have 4 more. if you had to use them, i'd say you're pretty much fucked though
I'm unconvinced that this is actually any kind of advantage, but if someone wants it, there it is.
I've read enough tales of men hunting in Africa with bolt guns--conventional, single-barrel bolt guns--to think that a decently-handled bolt-action rifle would do just fine, as long as the shooter were up to it.
YMMV of course, and like I said, it's an interesting piece from an engineering standpoint.
I too thought this was an interesting rifle based upon the engineering that would go into it. I'm sure it'd be good for dangerous game hunting, but that'd be about it.
WHERE CAN I GET AN ATI MOSSY CAMO STOCK AND A NC STAR SCOPE FOR THESE THANKS
don't forget a bipod LOL
