While the Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot is known for all the machine guns here (which I’ll get to in subsequent posts), I had the pleasure of holding the most expensive gun I’ve ever held and so I wanted to write about it first.
Appraised at $80,000, this Austrian Fuchs-Fine .416 Remington Magnum double-barreled bolt-action rifle is a rarity. The root wood is beautiful, and it gives the rifle a ton of weight which is probably needed to help absorb the recoil energy.
The rifle has a double bolt with side-by-side double barrels which makes for an interesting design. Fuchs-Fine only makes large caliber rifles for big game, so think lions, elephants, and the like.
Finally, take a look at the triggers. There is a front trigger and then a rear trigger to fire each shot. I thought it was interesting that the designer didn’t just have a single trigger that could fire one shot per trigger squeeze. I’m sure it’s still a hoot to shoot, regardless.
