1/27/2011 Carl Zeiss Military Products Buys HDC Distribution Arm

March 28, 2015

Calera, AL—Hunt Distributing Co. (HDC), a leading supplier of high-performance firearms, today announced that it has sold its US distribution organization for the Hensoldt line of tactical optics to Carl Zeiss Military Products. Hunt Distributing Co. (HDC) distributes, customizes, and manufactures a range of lightweight rifles, shotguns, and optics. When it signed an agreement in 2008 to act as the exclusive US distributor of Hensoldt optics, it introduced the military grade product line to US based competitive, recreational, and professional firearm users.

Over the past three years, the US ­based Hensoldt market has become strong and vibrant, prompting Carl Zeiss to bring sales operations back in house; effective January 1, 2011, firearms users wishing to acquire Hensoldt tactical scopes, reflex sights, spotting scopes, or night vision devices should do so by contacting Carl Zeiss Optronics USA, Inc. directly.

About HDC

Launched in 2008 by service disabled US Army veteran Nathan Hunt, Hunt Distributing Co. (HDC) distributes, customizes, and manufactures a range of lightweight firearms and accessories. The success of the company is driven by the knowledge and experience of its team of US military veterans, seasoned hunters, and master gunsmiths. They work to identify opportunities to reduce weight while minimizing recoil. This results in highly accurate, ruggedized firearms like the 6­lb Timos hunting rifles and Home Wrecker line of home defense shotguns. In the past, gun enthusiasts have had to choose between performance and ease of handling. With the launch of HDC, Hunt made it his mission to put together featherweight firearms that don’t require any compromises at all.
