We traveled to Austria to see how Ritter & Stark is making some of the most advanced factory rifles on the market, but to totally understand the thought process behind what they do we were invited to tour EPT Precision Technologies. I have been told that EPT has been in the gun making game for over 300 years and some of the machines on site date back to just after the First World War.
Just walking through the facility gives you a sense that it is occupied by craftsmen that are at the top of their field with a cutting oil soaked floor, well used and maintained machines, and a hammer forging machine that looks like it was used to build Mannlichers for the Emperor’s army. I hope that you enjoyed this look inside the doors of the factory that not only has produced some of the first Glock barrels but has a history that goes well past that.
