Kriss USA—best known for its Vector submachine gun—is aiming at collectors by launching Edelweiss Arms. This new division imports and sells curios, relics and antique firearms.
The presser indicates that Edelweiss Arms specializes in Swiss firearms. Furthermore, the company will utilize “strategic partnerships” throughout Europe to put high quality and “historically significant” guns into the hands of discerning buyers.
“This is an exciting new venture for our business, and we’re looking forward to providing some value to the collector’s market in the United States,” said Kriss USA marketing manager Tim Seargeant. “Edelweiss Arms is positioned to provide the discerning collector in the United States unprecedented access to some of the most pristine condition antique and C&R firearms from Europe. Additionally, our Edelweiss Arms website is designed to streamline the decision making and ordering process, to reduce the guess work that is traditionally associated with shopping for collector’s pieces.”
