Re: Need Help with 3 barrel gun

I believe they are called a drilling.Some of them can be pretty valuable. Someone should chime in here that knows alot more about them. A member here "Joe the Logger" might be a good person to ask. He seems very knowledgeable about most guns.

Re: Need Help with 3 barrel gun

I don't know much about them except they are really cool. I tried to buy one at a gun auction a couple years ago. It was made in Germany, was a 12 gauge by 12 gauge by 9.3x62. Very nice gun, I was willing to go up to about a grand for it.Wasn't even close. The bidding started at $1500.00, and it sold for $8000.00...waaaayyy outta my league
