Also refers to Cape Buffalo, the idea being you want two independent actions for reliability rather than a magazine repeater in case of jams or misfires when The Horned Death comes out of the brush and charges you- you don't have time to eject a dud or work the action for the next shot, you just pull the second trigger.

Generally "Cape Guns" are the large-caliber doubles meant for launching two big single projectiles, while a drilling or combination gun generally has a rifle cartridge barrel and a shotgun cartridge barrel.

Neither kind is particularly uncommon... It's just they usually cost as much as a used car and don't sit on the rack at a gunshop for very long. I'm astounded the one you linked to didn't sell, but hey, bad economy.
