4 bbls, very interesting. I wonder if you can shoot all 4 at once like dbl bbls? Ouch.
German Fierling (4 barels). Very rare and very expensive
Thanks for the info. 16ga?
Vierling, 20ga/20ga/9x3.72R/9.3x72R (4 barrel gun), 25" barrels, pre war German manufactured, THIS IS POSSIBLY ONE OF THE VERY FINEST GUNS EVER MADE, full sidelock for all four barrels, each side plate contains double locks(see picture), this gun remains new, possibly unfired, lightweight, the best German game scene engraving with the best ornamental leaf engraving with deep chiseled breached, Krupp barrels, matted rib, cocking indicators, horn trigger guard, horn grip cap, with gold inlay, drop point stock, special basket weave checkering, deep chiseled bullet trap in stock, the best German grouse engraving, carved into butt stock (you must see pictures to believe the quality), skeleton butt plate, cheek piece stock, this gun is unused, untouched, perfect screws and interlocking screws, gold barrel bands, a gun of this quality and complexity is seldom if ever seen, this is the very best with many complications, you can buy no better gun, the new price of this gun would be hundreds of thousands of dollars, a gun of a lifetime.
They could be made in most any caliber or guage combo that you had enough money to pay for. 4 shotgun gaugaes. Upper and lower selective triggers. As Nobile said you can't afford one. They also made drillings, again in most any combo that you wanted...
Rifle was built in Austria, Ferlach.
Ferlach in Carinthia, Austria. A small town dwarfed by the mighty Karawanken Mountains, on the periphery of world events, a European town steeped in history and tradition.
The church marks the center of town, as indeed it does in most old European cities. In front of the church is a small park lined by old trees. Ferlach is rather small as cities go with narrow and winding streets leading through the labyrinth that makes up the urban center.
In the shadow of the church tower, but standing proudly alone, with an almost rebellious air in architecture we find a centuries-old patrician house. It's almost as if the spirit of generations of Ferlacher gunsmiths is expressed through this house.
Ever since the 16th century, the gunsmith guild has made this small Carinthian city into something special - 'the city of gunsmiths'. Over the centuries the gunsmiths of Ferlach have secured a special place in history for their city. And over the centuries the gunsmiths and the city have kept to their own ways.
At first, the mighty Habsburg empire, then the rich landowners provided the gunsmith's city with wealth, freedom and security.
Of the many gunsmiths - at one timer there were over 100 in the city - only a few are still active. A few have resisted the stormy times, retaining pride in their craft and upholding tradition by a adding a new dimension of quality to the making of hunting weapons.
Also produced a FUNFLINGE - rifle with 5 barels, in all combination that customer can pay.
