The Story

“A Bachmann-Biathlonstock is a unique piece of handicraft and fits like a good pair of shoes.”
Rudolf Bachmann
Every day he enters smiling in his workshop: The handicraft is his passion and so he turned his hobby into his profession. Rudolf Bachmann is already known for being a successful guitar builder well beyond Antholz. His love for the handicraft and his passion for the sport Biathlon made him follow a new path – the path to a Bachmann-Biathlonstock.
It all came by chance: In 1993 Mr. Bachmann was as spectator at a Junior Competition in Antholz, during which an athlete got his wood rifle broken due to a fall. Rudolf decided then to take the rifle to his guitar workshop and to repair it.
… and that’s how the adventure began. It did not take that long until everyone knew that Rudolf Bachmann, the guitar builder, also repairs Biathlon rifles. Since then, more and more athletes referred to him with many different problems and wishes: specific adjustments, weight balancing, varnishing, grip requests etc.
The experience with the processing of wood and the passion to this sport gave him the necessary knowledge to make of every rifle a unique piece. At the end the continuous repairing and modifications were the reason for the wish to develop an own Bachmann-Biathlonstock and to be able to give the athletes a stock on measure. After numerous tests concerning shapes and materials and in collaboration with athletes and coaches, he succeeded, in 2011, in creating an innovative carbon rifle. Now nothing more stopped the production of excellent stocks. In 2016 the Bachmann-Biathlonstock was improved and enhanced. Since 2017 the new model is on the market.
