Falling-block rifles are characterized by simple handling, light weight and a short design and are particularly suitable for hunting in mountainous regions. Falling-block rifles with Hagn action are characterized by their clear-cut design, simplicity of handling, perfect function of all components and a precise single-stage trigger. Hartmann & Weiss also offer a take-down version of the falling-block rifle and, upon request, provide additional barrels for rimmed and rimless cartridges in a wide range of calibres. No tools are required to change barrels. 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.
