Krieghoff K-80 Australia "Gun of the Year" for 2016

Since the year 2000, Krieghoff has been bringing an exclusive one-of-a-kind "Gun of the Year" to the market. This year's "Gun of the Year" does honor to its name: In a unique way, the Krieghoff K-80 presents the diversity of flora and fauna on the largest island on the planet — Australia. But that isn’t the end of the story: Two of the largest and most significant of Australia's landmarks were also integrated into the over and under shotgun.

Engraved on the left side of the rifle is Ayers Rock — or "Uluru", as the sandstone rock formation in the Central Australian Desert is known to the aborigines. 

On the right is the Sydney Opera House, one of the most prominent and well-known buildings of the 20th century, alongside the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Golden Wattle — Australia's National Floral Emblem — is also represented, and dominates the split opening lever of the Krieghoff K-80 over and under shotgun.
