You just need to make sure that the single trigger is mechanically switched rather than inertia switched, as with the latter if you have a dud round (or empty first chamber) the trigger will not switch to the second barrel automatically.
Bullseye. Additionally the drop locks allow you to replace the lock-work if it should break and you are several hundred miles out in the bush and far away from the nearest gunsmith. Finally, double barreled rifles are just very very cool.
