Workshop of Gunsmith and Master Craftsman Waffen Kessler
The master gunsmith workshop Waffen Kessler was founded in 1985 by owner and master gunsmith Roland Kessler. In 1994, the first "Kessler" was built.
In our very well equipped master workshop we manufacture individual hunting rifles to the highest standard. We also carry out all work and repairs on your rifle.

The owner and founder of the firm, Roland Kessler, has been a dedicated stalker since 1979 and a master gunsmith since 1980. His enthusiasm for mountain stalking led him to develop the ‘Kessler’
