Rifles from Unique Alpine: perfection in your hands
This is the claim the German manufacturer from Erding, in Bavaria, presents itself with to its civilian customers. Here, decades of tradition and history meet future-oriented visions in the manufacturing of hunting and sports firearms. At the international level, Unique Alpine works closely together with FN Herstal and will be opening up a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Hungary in 2019. German quality and precision standards will be carefully followed there as well.
Let‘s have a look at the positioning and self-understanding of the the German company, before talking about individual products:
Unique Alpine is very clear about what the manufacturer states about the high standards of the brand:
“It is always our goal to develop, build, and deliver the very best product. With our new state-of-the-art TPG, UPG, and JPR rifle systems, we are now also offering on the civilian market rifles that are the result of our high standards. The comprehensive quality of our series for hunters and sports shooters makes almost any wish that shooters could have come true – in a price category that is absolutely competitive. We build rifles for all kinds of shooters – no matter whether they are beginners or full-blooded pros.”
All model series by Unique Alpine have been painstakingly designed and provided with useful, innovative technologies. The current hunting and sports rifles by Unique Alpine represent a marriage between proverbial “surgical precision” and absolute reliability, both of which are indispensable prerequisites for success in hunting or sports.
Unique Alpine's flagship product is the TPG-3 model. A multi-caliber tactical precision rifle that complies with NATO standard AC/225 D.14 – a real masterpiece in terms of range, accuracy, modularity, ruggedness, and workmanship.
In addition to firearms, Unique Alpine also provides accessories for all models
Most shooters and hunters feel a strong need for individual accessories for a rifle. The "best fit" mostly comes from the manufacturer itself. Unique Alpine is following this philosophy and offers interchangeable barrels, magazines, grip extensions, X-Connect rails to silencers and muzzle brakes. In addition, there are various grips and further rails and adapters, depending on the application. Finally let‘s have a look at all currently available models:
The current Unique Alpine range includes the following 15 rifle models for hunting and sports:
7 sports rifles: TPG-3, UPG-1 Fixed Stock, UPG-1 AR 15 Folding Stock, UPG-1 UA Folding Stock, JPR-1 Nordland, JPR-1 Highland, JPR-1 Nordland Scout
6 hunting rifles: JPR-1 Europa, JPR-1 Highland, JPR-1 Kodiak, JPR-1 Nordland, JPR-1 Nordland Scout, JPR-1 Kodiak Scout
Two models, the JPR-1 Nordland Scout and JPR-1 Kodiak Scout, are well-suited for both passions hunting and sports and have therefore been assigned to the “Adventure” segment by the manufacturer. Prices start at just under 1500 euro (MSRP) for the JPR-1 Europa entrly-level hunting model, threatening to leave some of the competitors out in the cold.
