The Perfect Combination of Timeless Heritage and Modern Sophistication
About the Classic Double Rifle
The Krieghoff CLASSIC double rifle combines the heritage of the traditional side-by-side and the sophistication of the most modern design and manufacturing technology.
The CLASSIC is available in the most common and suitable calibers. Krieghoff’s master gunmakers combined both traditional wisdom and innovative ideas to build a rifle that provides the ultimate in safety and reliability and a wide range of features that ensure smooth, quick, and accurate shooting.
In addition to the superb handling of the rifle, a most important feature is the manual cocking device , which is located on the top tang, in the position usually occupied by a conventional safety. It allows carrying the CLASSIC fully loaded with the hammers uncocked – the safest position since there is no chance of an accidental discharge.
Craig Boddington, an accomplished hunter and knowledgeable writer remarks: “After using it in the field, I am increasingly impressed with your cocking device versus a traditional safety. Great rifle, and of course it performed wonderfully.”
