Merkel NEWS 2015

The goal of the broad-based stock development was a complete collection of rifles for huntresses. Special stocks were respectively developed for the Helix bolt-action rifle, the K3 single-shot rifle and the B3/4-Line. The new rifle models are called Lady DS referring to a play on words in French: It uses the linguistic consonance of déesse (meaning goddess) and the letters D and S. In fact, even if the new rifles do not promise a divine shooting position, they do offer a considerable aid in achieving it.
