Gun and ammunition distributor Edgar Brothers has become the exclusive UK distributor of Italian manufacturer Chiappa Firearms.
Edgar Brothers will be importing around 20 products from the firm, including a range of pneumatic pistols and lever-action rifles.
Family-owned Chiappa, founded in 1958, is headquartered in Brescia but also has a production facility in Ohio, USA.
Chiappa’s president, Rino Chiappa, said: “Finally Chiappa Firearms is preparing to land in the UK, aided by one of the most serious and respected distributors in the country.
“We have so many good products for which the British market has shown a great interest, such as our lever-action rifles, a revolver adapted to the specific regulations and many small-calibre long guns for plinking and training. We look forward to demonstrating the quality of our products.”
Edgar Brothers’ managing director, Derek Edgar, added: “We are really excited to be able to offer these great products to the UK market and especially over so many different product types. Chiappa is a great company and we look forward to working with such an enthusiastic team.”
