Over under question

Do any of you know of a double barrel 12 guage with a rifle barrel underneath?

A guy asked me about this this evening.

Thanks. I should of asked double barreled 12 guage with rifle barrel underneath. When the guy asked me, I asked about the trigger config.
It went south from there.

Are you talking about a classic three barrel drilling?

Wow! Very interesting looking guns. I'm wondering if the guy I was talking to had a clue. He made it sound like the gun he was refering to was a recent production.
I'll probably run into him soon and I'll try to get more info. so we can nail this down.
Thanks folks for taking the time to respond.

How many barrels would you like and in what combination? I see up to five listed. These are very expensive, but amazing.

Hofer is one of a few "ultra-premium" custom makers in the world

John - check out his "Hummingbird"

FWIW - new drillings are being made today, definitely by the likes of Kreighoff & Merkel, maybe Sauer & others.

Outstanding craftmanship!! Heck, I enjoyed the great classical music.
The history of the village and company was truly an education and it made me think abut how life exists there to this day.
Thanks very much for the information folks!
