Hoesch Schwerter Extruded Profiles first time participant at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas

Hoesch Schwerter Extruded Profiles GmbH will participate the first time at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas from 23rd – 26th of January 2018. The company with the booth no. 15456 is located inside the area of the German Pavilion.

The SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show is an annual tradeshow for the shooting, hunting, and firearms industry. It is the biggest event of this type in the world together with IWA & OutdoorClassics (“IWA Nuremberg”), also taking place annually.

From its humble beginnings in St. Louis, in 1979, to taking every nook and cranny of the Sands Expo Center in 2017, the SHOT Show is the industry’s signature event, bringing together more than 1,700 exhibitors and 65,000 attendees. This year, SHOT Show will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary.

Hoesch Schwerter Extruded Profiles GmbH has been supplying the firearm market with hot extruded pistol frames for the past decade in both stainless and carbon grades. Our customers have experienced the evolution over the past years of our continual internal process improvement to a position today where hot extrusion is very price competitive with other technologies such as forging, laser plate cutting and machining. Other advantages realized are a more consistent hardness throughout the pistol frame as well as a more uniformed micro grain structure.
