The Ischler rifle became quite popular at the end of the 19th century, when Emperor Francis Joseph I presented it at his society hunts in Bad Ischl, Austria: elegant, with perfect handling and relatively light in weight, perfect for calm targeted shots from a good position. and poles apart from the heavy muzzleloaders used at that time. The barrel was embedded in the long forend which protected it from damage and the wooden forend also prevented metallic noises. The aristocratic hunters were thrilled and the weapon has been called the “Ischler short rifle” ever since.

One century ago already the great-grandfather of the present-day company owner crafted this “Ischler short rifle” for the Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph I. We still build this rifle today – technically and esthetically refined.
