Anschutz - Firearms
J. G. Anschutz is a firearms firm based in Germany. It is well-known for creating small and large-bore rifles and shotguns which are used for hunting and target shooting. It was founded by Julius Gottfried Anschutz at Zella-Mehlis in 1856, during the start of the industrialization era in Germany. The small shop grew and flourished to become one of the leading European companies in the field of pistol and rifle manufacturing. However, after the Second World War, most of the Anschutz family evacuated to the other side of Germany and the company’s premises were dismantled. Eventually, brothers Max and Rudolf Anschutz decided to re-establish the family company in Ulm and the rest was history.
Anschutz stands for perfection and innovation. And this has not been changed since its establishment until today’s time. It is well-known all over the world for the precision, accuracy, and workmanship of its products. Although products of Anschutz are not sold to the public directly, purchasing them will not be a problem as Anschutz has a huge and wide international sales network.
