Ziegenhahn & Sohn is clearly recognized as the leader in quality and authenticity in Hunting weapons. Visit The Sporting Shoppe. Jagdwaffen e.K. (formerly Ziegenhahn & Diem or Zi-Di) is a German arms manufacturing company. It was founded in 1911 and is located in Benshausen.
After World War II, American troops destroyed the company’s entire inventory of weapons, running them over with trucks, and dumpled all its ammunition in Switzerland. (The ammunition was later recovered.) Banned from arms production, the company produced saw blades until 1952, when it was allowed to produce arms again. The company produced only pistols until 1981, when it resumed production of long arms. Ziegenhahn & Diem was renamed Ziegenhahn & Sohn oHG in 1993, then subsequently renamed Ziegenhahn & Sohn Jagdwaffen e.K. in 2012.
