    You have to arrange visits ahead of time

    You cant buy a gun in Europe unless you have European permits and or hunting licence and they dont have guns for sale at the factory anway. That isnt to say that you could be fitted and pick out items at the factory.

    Call ahead and set up an appointment.

    Regards from Iowa

    Not sure what the rules are now but in 1997 I bought 2 K-guns "off the rack" from a store in Berlin. I had them shipped to the U.S. saving the VAT (15%?) and paid a 3% import fee. At the time they were significantly cheaper in Germany than here but the exchange rates were more favorable than today. Tom

    Gavin, You can take a factory tour if you set it up with enough notice. I visited there a couple of years ago and was fascinated by all that I saw. They are a most gracious host. Larry
