Tobi and George love traditional European hunting weapons.
These valuable guns were manufactured in the 1950s through the 1990’s, when high volumes were produced in Germany and Austria. Reputable companies include Sauer & Sohn, Krieghoff, Merkel, Heym, and Ferlach. Tobi, a gunsmith and dealer located in the scenic Saurlands Region of central Germany, is a former airborne weapons specialist and officer honorably discharged in 2011 from the German Army. George is a native of Mobile, Alabama and avid outdoorsman who fell in love with German hunting traditions while serving in Heidelberg, Germany as a US Army Physician during the early 1980’s.
In 2017 their unlikely connection was made and the seeds of their future partnership were planted. Restrictive gun laws in Germany and a lack of demand had sent Tobi looking for a partner willing to import these weapons into the United States, where demand is high. Unlicensed inheritors of these guns are required by law to turn them over to police unless a licensed buyer is found in a specified time. Times vary from two weeks to two months depending on the laws of each German state. Once in police custody they are melted down and destroyed. George had inherited his great, great grandfathers drilling and could not find an American gunsmith able to repair and restore it. Tobi placed a Zeiss scope with a detachable pivot mount and a 30/30 Winchester insert in his right shotgun barrel, completely refurbishing and restoring George's 1902 Hollenbeck drilling.
They founded T & G German Gun Imports in 2018.
Since then they have made it their mission to save these guns and give them a new life in the United States. This includes drillings with scopes, over under rifle shotgun combinations with scopes, and side by side shotguns. Since many of these weapons are in metric calibres, T & G also stocks ammuntion that can be purchased directly. They provide full service repairs for all their weapons and have a large stock of spare parts and accessories.
