The basis Merkel drilling is built around the 96K three-lock system; this gun is the all-rounder in the small game hunting ground. The system is a technical delicacy, which makes drillings as elegant as they are efficient. The Blitz locks are controlled via the three-position cocking slide on the stock tang. The front trigger is fitted with a set trigger for the precision shot. Depending on the position of the cocking slide, the right barrel or lower barrel can be fired in the engaged position. The 96KS version is fitted with long side plates.
