The Art of Gunmaking

It’s all about devotion. A passion for the craft resulting in perfection. Through the years we’ve had the honour of creating exclusive handmade rifles for some of the world’s most remarkable hunters and collectors. Tailored after exact requirements and then, through partnership, further refined beyond their highest expectations. Every detail handcrafted at our unique facility, VO Faktori, in the south of Sweden. All of us at the family business of Master Gunsmith Viggo Olsson, cherish the bond with our distinguished clients. Knowing they share our reverence for the art of gunmaking.

CUSTOM CRAFTED RIFLES

What kind of hunter are you? We all have our personal preferences and main field of interest. To help you make the best personal choice, we have created a handful of carefully designed concept rifles based on different hunting traditions, geography, demands, and characteristics. Each rifle is equipped and custom crafted according to your measurements, aesthetic visions, and hunting purposes. So whether you are fond of Northern European wild boar battues or exotic hunting south of the equator, there is a concept for your taste. If you find the existing concepts simply not enough, you are always welcome to use our ”Made to order” service where you choose every part of the rifle according to your precise requirements. Welcome to VO Vapen – a world of sustainable technology, innovation, and pure artistry.

INSPIRATION

Heavy showers, deep snow, or baking sun: the fluctuating temperaments of nature demand superior performance and control from the hunter and the equipment. At VO Faktori, our gun-making sanctuary, every detail is created with extraordinary care. Thanks to a combination of technical solutions – due to a range of ultramodern machinery – and a true understanding of the art of gun-making, we know that our VO Rifles always are trustworthy companions through rain and shine. 

VO Innovations

In our search for perfection, we came to the unavoidable conclusion that some classic solutions in our trade don’t live up to our demands. We simply had to come up with better, more precise or safer methods. Sometimes this has even resulted in true innovations. Many of these inventions are patented and now a part of our VO Vapen family. As with everything from our company, they have been created, produced and thoroughly tested at our own unique facility: VO Faktori.

The Company

To create the finest rifles possible. That was our motto from the beginning and it still is. But apart from building rifles we wanted to create a bond between us and our customers: something we are today very proud to have succeeded in. Many of them are among the world’s finest hunters and most discriminating collectors. But to master the art of gunmaking is nothing you achieve without considerable effort. That is why we built VO Faktori where every single detail of our rifles is being created and meticulously tested. Ensuring that everything we do lives up to that very first motto of Master Gunsmith Viggo Olsson.

VO Art of Living

To be a hunter is to be part of nature. Not letting anything go to waste. When we craft our rifles we collect every piece of metal and wood. Since we have our own shooting gallery at VO Faktori we even have the possibility to assemble material from fired bullets. This is the foundation of our design collection where we make everything from cutting boards to lounge tables but also collaborate with manufacturers that share our values: craft and innovation in a wholesome marriage. A sustainable approach to our craft that actually makes us unique in the world of rifle making. Being part of the circle of life and creating our own little design haven for hunters, that is VO Art of Living.
