Muzzles of a Drilling
Drilling - From the German word for three: Drei. A three-barrel gun, typically with two identical side-by-side shotgun barrels mounted above one rifle barrel. Built primarily in Germany and Austria. Other combinations of barrel types (two rifle barrels over one shotgun barrel, three completely different barrels, etc.) are variations, but still Drillings. See also: Doppelbuches-Drilling
But, not all drillings are Germanic. The above was built by Webley & Scott, in Birmingham, England.
