Even today there are still some gunmakers creating traditional guns and rifles. But of course they make it the modern way. For example Thomas Heuberg, a master engraver and master gunmaker, who's favorite is the Nimrod Action for his Drillings, Double Rifles and Double Guns. Read more:

Hard to tell but are the locks curved or flat from top to bottom? The engraved gun looks a bit curved.

Retz und Sohn in Suhl also make Nimrod action firearms: http://www.retzandson.com/de/jagdgewehre/nimrod-gewehre

I have been dealing with them for years and their work is fantastic!

@xausa: You are right of course!

What makes Thomas Heuberg so very special is, that all parts are made by himself inhouse - from the tiniest screw to the barrels!!!!
He is the only maker in Europe, who is still able or willing to do so. All others use at least some parts from suppliers.

Beautiful gun!! I believe the Nimrod side lock is still being made by Kuchenreuter, but this is truly unusual in that all parts are hand-made. (which means that all repair parts will be hand-made as well.) They can have beautiful, light triggers.

The original Nimrod drilling which Torsten Retz is resuscitating for me is, he tells me, quite unusual in that the side locks have intercepting sears.
