The double-barrelled rifles feature a design that has been thoroughly tested down to the last detail. A laterally reinforced action with a treble-grip locking system provides maximum strength and the reliability required for hunting on all continents. In addition, the self-opener system allows fast reloading. Our double-barrelled rifle stocks are handcrafted from the finest walnut, specially selected for its straight grain and toughness. Large calibre, double-barrelled rifles are provided with extended upper and lower tangs arranged in the comb to give additional stability. For mounting the telescopic sights, a quick-detachable scope mount system is used which is integrated in the quarter rib. This allows an unhampered aim over open sights after quick removal of the scope. Each handcrafted rifle is designed for individual hunting requirements to meet the particular requests of our customers when it comes to the optics, the engraving, the balance and the handling. Otto Weiss finished his training as a gunsmith in 1955 in Suhl, and Gerhard Hartmann finished his in Hamburg in 1959. Otto Weiss furthered his knowledge in Switzerland and England, and Gerhard Hartmann went to work in Austria. The two met in 1963 at a renowned sporting gun and rifle retailer in Hamburg and, in 1965, joined to produce individually crafted hunting guns. In 1980, Hartmann & Weiss was the first German company to manufacture Mauser Magnum bolt-actions as well as the short action in its original design after the war. Simultaneously, production of the Hagn action system was incorporated. Hartmann & Weiss is located in Hamburg today and makes side-by-side shotguns, over-and-under shotguns, double-barrel and bolt action rifles. Since 2007, they have been producing single-barrel side-lock break-down rifles with ejectors as well. Each gun is custom made to the customer’s needs and specifications.
