Welcome

Welcome to the Website of the German Gun Collectors Association.

We concentrate our efforts on German hunting guns of the last 150 years and their makers, beginning with the needle and pin fire guns that were the first practical breech loading hunting guns and ending with the modern German hunting guns. If you contact us about other guns, we will try to refer you to a source where you might get the answers you are looking for.

This video (in German) provides a brief overview on the requirements to become a Gunsmith in Germany.

Support the GGCA's efforts to preserve the history of German sporting arms.
