The People:

Robert Nibbs – Director and Designer

No one is sure quite where he came from, but it is believed he originated from the parts bin of the BSA factory in the early 1960′s.

Having started shooting at 14, Robert became frustrated with the equipment available from shooting equipment manufacturers and began making alterations to his own rifle to get his desired results. What started out as Robert’s Anschütz Supermatch later became an early all wood fore-runner to the Ultra stock, featuring a shortened butt and swallowed fore-end.

In 1992 Robert produced his first aluminium stocks, which have now evolved into the modern System Gemini stocks of today.


Svetlana Manakova – Director and Administrator
