For us, the label Made in Germany is much more than just the place of final assembly. It is proof of quality. As a company with its headquarters in Triefenstein and logistics center in Salt Lake City / Draper, we feel committed to the local art of engineering, to inventiveness and to reliability.

With internal machinery, internal finishing facilities, over 30 active injection molds, and a regional network of suppliers, we clearly differentiate ourselves from our competitors. In addition to our mechanical production, we boast a constantly growing polymer division. We are one of the few German companies that can almost completely do without purchased parts like rifle stocks (except Magpul PRS), handles or magazines.

We clearly name any AOT (Articles of Trade) OEM or purchased parts that we use. Learn more about our production capacities and partners in our NEWS..
