The Schmeisser GmbH company proudly bears the name of Hugo Schmeisser – one of the most innovative weapons designers of the 20th century. Schmeisser today: Tradition meets high-tech – surely a great philosophy.
German and European hunters and target shooters have, until fairly recently, had to largely rely on imported AR-15 guns from the US and Great Britain. Unfortunately, the supply of these guns often did not keep up with the demand and did not always meet the high expectations of German shooters with respect to build quality. Thus we decided to meet the demand for German-built AR-15s by building them ourselves to the very highest Teutonic quality standards, of which Hugo Schmeisser would have been proud of.
