In the quiet seaside town of Vero Beach, Florida, in a small unpretentious building, you will find the headquarters for Europa Corporation, d.b.a. duPONT/KRIEGHOFF Gun Company. The khaki colored building sits in a park like setting, with tropical flowers peeking out from under palm trees. A small sign denotes the company name, but its presence deceives the usual clay target shotgun or big game rifle shopper. Once inside, this new facility offers state of the art shopping for high-end shotgun and rifle enthusiasts.
The new showroom is large enough to display over 75 stunningly engraved guns in custom crafted walnut gun cabinets, yet small enough to provide an intimate and comfortable atmosphere. The ambiance is the feel of an old English gun room, with oriental rugs, zebra skin, comfortable deep cushioned chairs, beautiful art and a small bar. The smell of leather, wood and gun oil permeates the air and puts the gentleman shopper at ease – they know this is their store. Off to the side, is the entrance to a more spectacular room, the Vault. If you are lucky enough, you may be invited in.
duPONT/KRIEGHOFF maintains the world’s largest inventory of new and pre-owned Krieghoff shotguns and rifles. The inventory includes the full gamut of engraving patterns offered by Krieghoff, but the piece de resistance is the large collection of one of a kind, custom engraved guns. With over 65 years in the shotgun business duPONT/KRIEGHOFF has collected a massive inventory of additional Krieghoff barrels, wood sets and receivers and irons.
Whether you are traveling to Florida or looking on the web, duPONT/KRIEGHOFF should be your only stop when shopping for a high-end clay target shotgun or big game rifle. Providing the best to the customer is nothing new at duPONT/KRIEGHOFF – that’s been the goal for over 65 years.
