Mr. Joseph Szecsei:

Craftsman, Hunter, Inventor

In the ninth year of life, Joseph Szecsei shouldered a weapon of his own design and took to the hunt in the Imperial Game Preserve of his native Hungary. Thus began a long and successful career as a craftsman and a hunter of dangerous game.

As the owner of many fine quality big bore rifles, Joseph Szecsei took the time to study their construction. His examinations and a hunter's instinct lead him to the conclusion that design changes were in order: changes that would instantly improve the hunter's efficiency and safety.

The introduction of the Szecsei Double Bolt is the fulfilment of a life's work as a hunter and a craftsman. The Szecsei Double Bolt big bore rifle represents the most significant changes to the class in more than a century.
