Peter Hofer, born in 1958, studied at the Institute for Higher Technical Studies in Metalwork and Weapons Manufacturing. In 1986 he founded his own company. International success and prominent clients provided great scope for artistic creativity in the design of exclusive sporting guns. Awards and exhibitions all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, the USA and Russia and the Ukraine have led to rapid development, continuous expansion and new company locations. The unique creations that leave the workshop are all handcrafted by Peter Hofer, some even taking up to twelve years.
