On the following pages we have summarized interesting and worthwhile facts about our company. For further information, more detailed information and questions you are invited to contact our marketing department.
Construction, development and technical production of sport weapons is more to us than just a job - in fact it is a passion for every one of us. We are not interested in the product itself, but in the sport in general. Be it at a field target event outdoors - actively as a shooter or (just as active) as an adviser and partner of service for all competitors - people from STEYR are not only producing the devices for shooting, they live within the sport as well!
That’s where our philosophy of the „STEYR Manufacture“ comes from. In every single weapon you find the spirit and the energy of our employees, who build it personally. The assembling of an air-rifle or an air-pistol has its very own magic, even a sensual aspect. With knowing, sensitive hands a high-class piece of sports equipment is built part by part, screw by screw, touch by touch, which will provide the future owner and shooter with everything necessary for big success, whether it is a personal best or a world record!
Only when you have felt with your own hands and understood with your own vision how important each single component is and its ideal adjustment for the entire product, then you can see that STEYR SPORT represents a class of its own when it comes to the quality of workmanship.
The history of our business starts in the middle of the 19th century and is affected by great names, enjoying the world’s fame in the domain of weapons’ technology: Founder of the business and pioneer concerning weapons’ technology Josef Werndl, the weapons’-“engineers” Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher and Otto Schonauer - recognized experts, daunting for all shooters: Synonyms for technical innovation and highest quality.
Up to 2001, the sport weapons’ department was a section of Steyr Mannlicher. Then due to restructuring and privatization - a new business developed: Steyr Sportwaffen GmbH.
