Sorry for quibbling GT, but that gun would be a "vierling". Vier is four and drei is three. The idea is that German hunters could walk through the woods and take whatever mother nature would show them. I have a drilling made for the American market by Sauer and Sohn and imported by Charles Daley. The current barreling is two 12ga.s over a 257 Roberts barrel. I believe that the action was originally made about 1900 and was chambered for 12ga. over 30/30. Around 1957 it was sent back to Charles Daley and they sent it to Austria to have it rebarreled. The firearm shown above with all the gold inlay and engraving shows that it is the very top of the line. Mine is one step down but sold for about $600 in the very early 20th century. That was about the yearly wage for a working man back then. It's funny, but the Germans really took to the old 22 Hornet. A lot of their schutzen rifles were chambered in that caliber.
