Default Serengeti Plains Firearm?

I've noticed that, for the same quality, you pay almost twice the price for a double rifle over a Drilling. With that in mind, I went searching.

I found a Sauer in 12x12 over 8x57 JR. I've made contact with the lady and gentleman who own the firearm and will visit them as soon as I can get away. It is not enough for dangerous game but might just work out for what I have in mind.

It is a true sidelock, has a 'flip up' rear sight and a cartridge trap. If it 'feels' the way it looks, I might just take the plunge. The seller is not too far distant from me that I cannot spend a day going over and coming back.

I think of it as time well spent, a chance for something different and a way to hunt both grouse and deer/elk at the same time. My love regards it as an excellent opportunity to look at more beautiful country side and a guaranteed lunch. If I do purchase this firearm... she isn't going to settle for a tuna sandwich.
