Schmeisser GmbH is proud to bear the name of Hugo Schmeisser – one of the most innovative developers of 20th century infantry weapons. Schmeisser today: Tradition meets high tech.

Schmeisser GmbH was founded by Thomas Hoff and Andreas Schumacher in 2009. The founders had accumulated over 20 years of experience designing, developing and trading firearms prior to establishing the German firearms manufacturer. One of their initial projects was the production of self-loading, semi-automatic AR-15 rifles for civilians and fully-automatic M-16 rifles for the domestic and international police and military market. The versatile development department at Schmeisser GmbH provides public authorities with the fastest possible solutions for their specific requirements.

Schmeisser GmbH is one of four licensed NATO and Bundeswehr small arms suppliers.
