The engravings are modelled on the leopard's life cycle in their arrangement. They're presented in three main scenes: the chase, the attack, and the social family life. The weapon's colours are also modelled after the leopard's. The Leopard’s Journey thus presents itself in lordly black, gold, and white.
Hausmann & Co GmbH views 'the weapon as artwork'. Extraordinarily exclusive hunting weapons are crafted in Ferlach with exacting manual labour. The customer stands at the very focus. The weapon is jointly planned.
'Our weapons generally don't distinguish themselves through slimmer and more elegant design, but arise from the customer's personal wishes and conceptions. Here we commit ourselves to the details most meticulously,' emphasizes Christian Hausmann, who co-founded Hausmann & Co GmbH with Georg Heim and Florian Mutenthaler. For many years a passion for the manual production of luxury weapons has bonded the trio, two gunsmiths and an engraver. Since 2011 they've been creating exclusive hunting weapons under the manufacturing business's common roof in Ferlach.
It takes an average of six hundred working hours to create a Hausmann gun. Hausmann & Co is paying particular attention to the new theme guns: Superior Guns. The first model is called 'Leopard’s Journey'. It's a slim, elegant double-barrelled rifle of the extra class with elaborately hidden side-lock construction. Much effort has been expended to keep the screws concealed on both sides. This provides ample space for impressive engravings, which in turn provides customers with maximum individuality and exclusivity.
