Flodman Guns a Stainless Masterpiece Elegant all-purpose gun
Flodman Guns is a family business and part of the Skullman Enterprise AB group (est 1978).
The company’s founder, Sixten Skullman, was originally an airplane mechanic and previously built racing engines. In 1992 Skullman Enterprise AB took over Flodman Guns.
In 1993 Flodman Guns began manufacturing combi and double-barreled shotguns. At the same time they offered the option of a weapon with Titanium barrels.
Since 1998 it has been possible to order the sporting model with a variable barrel length. Currently we are testing a new type of barrel: a free-floating barrel without a vented rib.
Flodman is the worlds lowest over and under weapon. Low center of gravity and perfect balance.
Flodman has a straight-line recoil owing to the low case and high drawn up rear part of the receiver. The recoil is absorbed and the muzzle remains in line with the target. This results in a faster and safer second shot.
Exquisite walnut wood comes as a standard fitting on the Flodman, but it`s possible to choose other classes of walnut. Individual adaptation of the butt is included as standard.
Flodman is self-opening. In contrast to other over and under weapons the barrels are not used to break the weapon. When the mechanism is cocked with the top leaver the barrels fall in place under their own weight. The system’s opening angle is larger than other weapons making it easier for quick reloading.
Apart from the stainless steel, Flodman’s quality and long life comes from the strength in the joint and locking device between the barrel and the action body .
Flodman has very large and geometrically accurate load bearing surfaces. In principle Flodman is indestructible.
Flodman is manufactured using the highest quality materials, among others Stavax®. No other civil weapon is constructed and manufactured using such a strong material and stainless steel. During manufacture the weapon is tested under gas pressure that is three times greater than a standard cartridge.
Flodman shotgun barrels are manufactured using a stainless steel alloy (ss2377), which is only found in space technology and the nuclear industry. There is continuous development with new barrel material, among others Corrax® from Uddeholm (www.uddeholm.se) and Damascene steel from Damasteel AB.
Barrels are available in Titanium (grade 5) from Sandvik Steel (www.sandvik.com) giving superiority in relation to strength/weight. All cutting operations are made using Sandvik Coromant tools.
Flodman has changeable chokes, but it may be ordered with fixed chokes.
