HOUSTON (April 24, 2019) – Gordy & Sons has announced that it is the newest US dealer for Krieghoff, the German gunmaker.
H. Krieghoff, based in Ulm, Germany, was founded as Sempert & Krieghoff in 1886, producing some of the best-quality European hunting guns. In the late 1950s and ‘60s, the company saw an opportunity to add competition shotguns to its lines and today, the Model 32 and the K-80 are still among the best-loved clay shooting guns on the market, making Krieghoff a household name among gun connoisseurs the world over. In Europe, Krieghoff is still renowned for its fine hunting guns, including double rifles and drillings, and the Classic Double Rifle is a favoured firearm among the big-game hunting community.
Gordy & Sons will be one of the exclusive full-stocking Krieghoff dealers, joining just 20 other dealerships in the US and meaning that they will have a full selection of Krieghoff guns in stock, including the famed K-80, the K-20, the Essencia side-by-side shotguns and/or rifles, the Semprio rifles, Classic rifles and the Hubertus.
Gordy & Sons’ Retail Manager, Mike Burnett, commented: “Krieghoff is one of those brands that lives up to its name – the clay shooting guns are among the most popular in the competition world, used by some of the top shooters. The hunting guns are built to the most amazing standards, and are set apart by the beautiful engraving, top-class wood and attention to detail. We’re really excited to have this illustrious brand on our shelves.”
Nick Boerboon, Sales Manager for Krieghoff International, added: “Gordy & Sons is the ideal location for a fine gunmaker such as Krieghoff. Houston is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US, and Texas has a very strong outdoor background and customer base. Growing a long-term successful relationship is something we don’t take lightly in our dealer network, and finding those long-term partners is key to our success. Gordy & Sons is a great fit, and we look forward to being part of this must-see firearms store in Houston.”
