2000EL Sporter Configuration

The features that distinguish the 2000EL Sporter from the regular 2000EL are the longer barrels (30" on the 12-gauge, 28" on the 20 and 28-gauge), the Skeet/Improved Cylinder chokes, and the ventilated forearm which allows the barrels to cool quicker. Stocked in luxury grade Turkish Walnut and offering superb handling, characteristic of a Merkel over and under, this Sporter model is an excellent choice for clay shooting enthusiasts.
