It was in 1563 when the Duke of Henneberg granted the gum makers from Suhl the right to from a Gunmaker’s Guild thus making Suhl the European Center for small arms manufacturing. Over the years the focus changed from military weapons to hunting rifles.
Special designs of barrel combinations, high functionality, tight tolerances and impeccable finish gave Suhler rifles a worldwide reputation for superb quality.
The Suhler tradition is still very well alive and the firm Adamy with a 185 year old tradition is part of this elite group of gunmakers.
This, paired with handmade perfection and a deep feeling for design enables our master gunsmiths to let a custom designed hunting rifle become reality.
You will get a gun that fits your body size, your hunting style and your ideas about the overall design of stock, action and engraving. Put us to the test!
We are masters of gunmaking and have been so for more than 190 years as a family firm. It is now the 7th generation’s turn to produce hunting weapons which are absolutely first-class.
The company history goes back to the beginning of the 19th century. It was Stefan Lützelberger, the great-great-grandfather of the Helmut Adamy of today who started our gunmaking tradition.
Stefan Lützelberger’s son and son-in-law (Gottlieb Lützelberger and Wilhelm Adamy) continued the craft. As witnesses to this period there are exhibits to be seen today on the premises of »Adamy Jagd & Mode«, our hunting requisites shop. The exhibits are a percussion rifle dating from 1820 and a percussion over-and-under rifle of 1840.
Adamy Bros, with the company name »Gebr. Adamy Jagdwaffen« was founded by two Adamy brothers in 1921, Franz and Albert.
From 1955 it was Albert Adamy’s son, Alfred Adamy, who continued to run the company.
Helmut Adamy took over Gebr. Adamy Jagdwaffen in 1977.
Sven Adamy also learnt the craft of the gunmaker. It is now his turn to continue the family firm tradition, the seventh in line, and son of the present owner-manager.
What we ask of ourselves as practitioners of our traditional craft is the creation of hunting guns to meet the individual wishes of each customer, as has long been the way here in Suhl, while at the same time employing the most modern of means available to support today's huntsmen and huntswomen.
