About the Manufacturer:

Founded in 1954 by Willi Korth, a railway engineer, this gunmaking business began by manufacturing alarm revolvers using steel from scrapped WWII vintage machine guns. This enabled Korth to profit from the design of his basic action and to develop the strict quality standards which would later be applied to his conventional revolvers. The first cartridge revolver appeared in 1964. A pistol was developed shortly before Korth's death in 1982 but did not reach the market for some years later. In April, 2000 the Korth company was purchased by Freylinger & Co., gunsmiths in Levange, Luxemburg. Korth guns are renowned for their exceptional quality, and are priced appropriately.
