Fantastic for woodland stalking, or that hill or even the mountain hunt the lightweight German single shot has a 20-inch fluted and threaded barrel. The thread (15 x 1) is a standard size with all Merkel rifles allowing for a moderator or muzzle brake to be fitted. The K5 comes with removable open sights, that can be removed or fitted further back to accommodate a moderator or muzzle break. A Merkel one-piece scope mounting system with quick release allows for the easy of fitting and return to Zero of your selected  rifle scope or scopes

 

With a Grade 5 walnut oil finish stock this rifle is a dream to own and shoot,  comprising of the typical German styling hogs back, or Bavarian stock with checkering that is remarkably comfortable and was originally designed for using with open sights but lends its self to a straight tube scope nicely. the rifle has a classic traditional locking system making it slim and light weight with the ability to take down for ease when traveling.

The Extreme model Merkel K5 has a black action and is incredibly practical as a hunting rifle. The overall length of the stalking rifle is 36.5 inches with a weight of 5 pounds, this is a very trim, compact and hassle-free hunting rifle. a Merkel quick release scope mount scope offers the shooter the best of both worlds, there are sling swivel studs fitted as standard that will increase the ease of use in the field.

The K5 has a adjustable trigger for both pull weight and length of pull and a fluted barrel slightly reduces the weight. The diameter of the barrel is 17mm and a perfect hunting companion. Using a short compact mounted scope is perfectly adequate  for a rifle of this style , and for the .270 with its 20 inch barrel the recoil is acceptable. As it is a single shot brake barrel system, there is a top tang mounted opening lever, and de-cocking safety. The Floating breech face locking system engages directly into the barrel with further engagement when the two lugs extend down from the block, This locks into the action for an incredibly smooth, tight and firm lock up making it very safe.

The Merkel K5 has become an extremely well sort after rifle  among UK hunters these days as more shooters recognise its qualities and ability in the field from fox to Red stags and trips further afield in Europe and beyond due to its versatility and calibers ranging from 223, 243, 6.5 Creedmoor 308, 30,06 to name a few of the more popular offerings among the growing comunity of Merkel shooters.
