Can someone explain to me, why double rifles are so darn expensive? :dunno:
Almost all the ones I have come across are $10,000 and up. :faint: With the exception of one I've seen for $5,000 that looked a little shaddy for the price.

Kinda like a perazzi shotgun. It's more about the craftsmanship and art than the cost of materials. Exotic woods and so fourth. Most of them are 100% hand made and built to the buyers specs.

Most of them are embellished beyond belief. Even the "plain" ones have super fancy wood and extraordinary hand fitting. Go a little pricier and you get hand engraving, gold inlays, and even nicer wood. I'm not saying that any gun is worth $100,000, but they are fancy.

Don't forget the countless hours of hand fitting and fine tuning it takes to get both barrels to shoot the same POA

Basically because they are some of the nicest guns you can lay hands on. I saw a few at the SCI convention that where below 10. I think the lowest level S2 Blaser. Though I will say I was also salivating at the Krieghoff Semprio. Most of these rifles have a fair bit of costume work done on them. also is the requirement for the two barrels to hit at the same POI at a certain range

I also think there may be a factor of how few are produced. That and if you could go to the post office, buy a migratory cape buffalo stamp, hop on a Southwest flight and stay at a Motel 6 to get your Cape Buffalo, it would not seem as worthy of a dream.

Regulating. Beyond the other factors of craftsmanship and artwork, getting the barrels regulated (shooting to the same point of impact by the sights) is a major factor. Getting them set, test shooting them, and then re-adjusting them, test shooting again, etc, is a labor-intensive process. Much time and work put into it that no other type of rifle requires.
