This unique double barrel bolt-action rifle is quite radical in design. It loads two cartridges at the same time and is the world's only repeating double rifle design. Incorporating titanium components to reduce weight, this .416 Remington Magnum rifle has an eight-shot capacity, feeding from a beautifully engraved massive magazine assembly mounted under the receiver. Hungarian inventor Joseph Szecsei developed his innovative design after being charged simultaneously by three elephants in 1989. - NRA National Firearms Museum (emphasis mine).
Via View From The Porch. I feel a little guilty about stealing this from Tam, but that bit about 'being charged by three elephants' just tipped me over the edge.
P.S. Click on the pic to embiggenate so you can check out the engraved pictures on the receiver.
