Optima Double Rifle Drilling
The slim action of the Optima is made from high-strength chrome molybdenum steel and reminds one very much of the Classic double rifle. The extended “purdey style” nose and the graceful shaped fences add to the durability and strength of the action and enhance the precious look of the gun.
Like no other gun, it reflects ingenuity and the art of gun making at its best. Over 100 years of experience and a long list of innovations, the name Krieghoff is practically synonymous with drillings. The Optima, the newest generation of drillings is no exception. The rich know-how of Krieghoff’s engineers and craftsmen combined with modern steels and machinery result in a slim and trim drilling with true “all-around” qualities.
