Trigger Sporting Arms opened its doors on 1st August 2007, exactly a year after the new Arms Act came into force in Malta in August 2006. The owner, Ray Scerri began the small business by immediately introducing into Malta and obtaining the representation of the civilian products of the renowned brand of Heckler & Koch. HK-No Compromise! This is the slogan of the Company that supplies small arms to the world’s elite Military, Law Enforcement and Security forces.
In the shotgun line we now represent Hatsan which produces a wide selection of tactical and hunting shotguns. This was a successful undertaking because this brand offers excellent value for money. Hatsan Shotguns are built to exacting specifications on a modular system. This makes them very versatile for a number of disciplines including Law Enforcement use and Tactical Shooting Competitions.
The business, although independent, works closely with a number of other dealers to provide to its clientele a variety of well known brands in the modern firearms line. Brands available include Browning, Winchester, CZ, Walther, Sig, Colt, Izhmash, Cugir, Canik, Hera Arms amongst others.
Another line that the business pursued was trading in pre-owned firearms, especially hand guns. Trigger Sporting Arms has over these past 10 years built a good reputation for sourcing high quality used and collector guns, but especially in classical Colts and Smith & Wesson, Star, Astra, Walther, Weihrauch Armenius, Luger, Schmidt-Rubin, Mosin-Nagant, Mauser and many other classical names.
After restrictive practices came into force regarding the shipping of firearms, we have made successful arrangements to be able to ship economically into Malta from Germany. We therefore offer an importation service to local bidders who win auctions, or would like to purchase single items from well known Internet sites.
In the Airgun line we represent the high end English brand Falcon made by NSP Engineering. To complement the Hatsan shotgun range, a wide variety of Spring Airguns and PCP’s are now also stocked.
Besides firearms proper, Trigger Sporting Arms stocks a wide variety of ammunition, Lee Precision Reloading equipment, reloading components, Luger and Sutter Rifle scopes and Binoculars and many other sport shooting accessories.
Trigger Sporting Arms is involved in a number of activities, including Sponsorships
