„Made for hunting“
Despite all modern developments we strongly believe in the classical way of manufacturing. Although the development of the manufacturing of classic rifles is completed in general perception, we regularly prove the opposite. We only change if we can improve the proven and not for the sake of change.
„We only change to improve.“
Hunting experience, creativity and expertise passed down through the generations are united at Karl Hauptmann. A well-rehearsed team, accurate machines, tools and equipment, a lot of experience and especially skilled craftsmanship result in unique hunting rifles.
Ten fingers, one thought. Although we use state-of-the-art technology in our facility, focus has been on genuine handicraft for three generations. Thanks to experience, tradition and expertise we are able to create more with our hands than what would be possible with machines only.
We manufacture hunting rifles with only one objective: „Made for hunting.“
No museum piece of tomorrow but hunting rifles for today and the future. Masterpieces, perfectly crafted and elaborately decorated, with perfect performance in the field and excellent shooting performance. We are committed to our costumers. Together we develop an individual concept. Discretion is very important to us. It remains our company’s secret who buys our rifles and how we technically implement our unique ideas.
