BÜCHSENMACHER SCHILLER

Fine Mauser rifles from Franken

  1. In a small German town , situated in Franken, a part of Bavaria (but people there do not like that!), you will find some of the best Mauser rifles made today. Master gunmaker Heinrich Schiller is one of only a handful of craftsmen in Germany, who build custom guns and rifles to the highest standards. Let’s have a visit with him in his workshop.
