Hi all, Waidmannsheil.

I emailed "Heym USA" for an owner's manual for a Heym 22S "Bockbüchsflinte" Combination Gun (a nice l'il 20 ga over .222 Rem is what I'm getting) and they said they didn't have one for this discontinued model, the 22S double-trigger model.

Very disappointing...

Does anyone have any scans or a PDF of this, bitte?

Vielen Dank.

Old No7

Old No7,
I don't have an "Owners" manual like those furnished with new American guns now, because of todays lawsuits; and it is possible they didn't have one. One of the features of these guns that is sometimes misunderstood is that you can't fire both barrels without cocking the gun again. It has only one "lock" and a selector to choose which barrel fires. Therefore, if you fire the rifle barrel, you have to open the action to re-cock the lock before you can shoot the shotgun. This gun was pretty popular when I lived and hunted in Germany because it was economical, the .222Rem was a popular caliber for Roe Deer, and the 20 ga was adequate for occasional small game. Because of extraction problems with this model gun, Heym asked DWM to develop a rimmed version of the .222 Rem. Mag. The result was the 5.6x50R, a great caliber and one of my favorites. T & G Gun Imports, Mobile Alabama has one of these guns in stock, they may accidently have a manuel.
Mike

Why would a double rifle have 2 triggers if there was only one striker? A single trigger that required selecting the barrel to be fired (by moving the striker) and then recocking makes more sense for a double with a single striker. Still strikes me as odd.

My guess is Set Triggers: the rear trigger "sets" the front, for a lighter pull for the rifle -- while the front trigger could be pulled without the rear being set, but with a heavier pull, for the shotgun.

I don't see the sear engagement screw for a set trigger in the picture.

HalfaDouble,
If it has one( some become lost) the adjustment screw would be between the triggers, they are sometimes hard to see in photos. I understand the confusion because of having 2 barrels and 2 triggers with only I striker. On the other hand it would also be confusing to have a selector if there were two strikers.
