Heeren action falling-block rifles, the design of which has remained unchanged for over a century, have always been favoured as stalking rifles by discerning sportsmen. Their compact action makes them extremely short and easy to handle. Hartmann & Weiss take the greatest care in making the rifles to the original design to ensure unparalleled elegance and reliability. Heeren rifles can be made with a colour case-hardened action, if desired. Customers have a choice of round or octagonal 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.
