Krieghoff’s Gun of the Year 2006, the Hubertus single shot rifle, first earned this honor in 1999. Master Engraver Gerhard Reich showcases his talent in a stunning engraving depicting Elk and Big Horn Sheep in a classic fight. Reich’s debut as the current Gun of the Year engraver combines intricate gold work on the receiver and barrel adding depth with detailed background engraving. The hand carved stock and pierced top lever add the finishing touches to this magnificent 30.06 rifle. Quite unique is the addition of an extra 28 gauge shotgun barrel making it a 2-Barrel Rifle/Shotgun Set. The 2006 Gun of the Year - a traditional mountain rifle with extra shotgun barrel - is a perfect blend of old world craftsmanship and modern innovation, truly capturing the spirit of St.Hubertus.
