The name Ern originates from Solingen and is for centuries intrinsically tied to the production of blades. Here in Schlebusch, the place of manufacture of our Hunting Guns, our coat of arms bears the “Wolfsangel” for centuries. Already in Germanic time used as a symbol for the hunt is it still used today as our master trademark.
From all different know methods of Barrel Making cutting the Rifling is the most difficult and most expensive one.
Although cutting the Rifling is also the most individual, stress free and most accurate technique of them all.
Would there be anything better we would offer it.
At the very end, after all manufacturing processes and stocking the gun has taken place, the Barrel Rifling will be done. Even the Sling Swivels are installed at that time.The result is a most accurate, round and centric bore. The Twist can be changed on customer request.
In consideration of the enormous performance of this butterfly here some particulars about it.
These butterflies with a wing-spread of about 10cm take off in the autumn from their summer location, which stretches out to the south of Canada, to the winter location in the mountain forest of the Sierra Madre in central Mexico. The butterflies overcome the unimaginable distance from up to 3500km.
The first Monarches arrive again in Canada at the end of May. From September on the “Great-Grandchild’s” and “Great-Great-Grandchild’s” start their escapes from the winter. They are led from a kind of genetic travel information which makes them keep their exceptional travel cycles for centuries. How these little creatures manage to do and repeat it year after year is unknown to present times.
The American Monarch-Butterfly ranks among the most beautiful motives to create in the different colours of gold inlays.
The fine nuances and agleam colours paired with high surface hardness make it the first-grade Colour Case Hardening. At the same time it reduces mechanical wear and inhibits corrosion. Perfect hardened parts on a Bolt Action Rifle for instance, will make the Bolt move in the Action “like on ice”.
The best Colour Case Harding is only as good as the lacquer that protects it. For that reason we worked closely with one of the leading German Institutes to develop an extremely wear-resistant Nano-Lacquer. This coat adds only a very thin layer to fully emphasise the engraving.
This especially developed lacquer greatly extends the life and the beautiful looks of the new Colour Case Hardening.
We are one of the very few companies that implement ideas and program in house. Subsequently every single part, starting by the barrel, will be made from the scratch into a blank and finally finished by a skilled tradesman.
All Actions of our guns are newly calculated. If not requested different, all guns will be made with our durable Rising Bite 3rd Fastener. This form of extended rib enables us to make considerably more elegant Actions with the same strength. This will reduce weight and improves the balance of the gun.
An extended rib is essential for a 100% lockup of the Action. Going without it will result in “Gapping” during the build up of pressure. This means, that for a very short time, a gap between the barrel and the breech will build up during the process of shooting.
Under the backpressure of the present high power Rifle Cartridges the “Gapping” will not just put strain on the Action it will also result in a down flip of the muzzle. In particular with an oily chamber and the absence of an extended rib, the point of impact can considerably change downwards under the resulting extensive pressure on the breech.
It is hardly imaginable that well known products such as Hunting Guns even need to be new engineered. In the process every single time several thousand individual measurements for almost hundred parts need to be defined and coordinated. Today modern technology enables us to provide you with system solutions that would not have been possible some years ago.
The completely new engineered “Roller-Side-Lock” with strike-curve, characterises in a very fast Lock-Time and in reliable detonation. The rather weak “Swivel” of the conventional Side Lock is replaced with massive Rollers, from which the energy will be passed onto the Tumbler.
The parts of the lock are arranged on to levels. This way the overall height of the complete lock is significantly reduced and positively affects the overall appearance of the Gun.
The Interceptor Sear is installed force-neutral. This means, that from whatever direction a shock impulse is applied, it can not bounce out of the Sear-Bent. Advantageous leverage on the sear will ensure a crisp trigger with an increased dept on the Sear-Bent.
