About the Optima Drilling
The combination of double shotgun barrels with a rifle barrel centred beneath, has been the classic drilling configuration for generations. Forest masters and hunting experts all over the world appreciate the versatility a drilling provides.

On request we still built the Optima with the traditionally soldered and therefore very slim, light barrels.

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.
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”.
