Its Slim Action and Graceful Shape Adds to its Durability, Strength and Performance
About the 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.
A “true” double rifle drilling. As know from the Classic double rifle we also installed the muzzle adjustment device embedded into the front sight ramp. This will guarantee very easy regulating of the rifle barrels without blueing or soldering. The Krieghoff 1-2 trigger option is a very interesting option, especially for hunters who use the Optima strictly as a double rifle drilling.

Optima “Big Five” Double Rifle Drilling
Available in big bore calibers up to .500/.416 N.E., the Optima “Big Five” demonstrates impressively its inherent strength. The fairly straight and beefy “Big Five” stock and the classic express rifle sight allow for quick target acquisition and make this Optima configuration the ideal “Africa Drilling”.
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.
