Jager was founded in 1949

with the aim of creating a company capable of adapting to the needs of the market, in the fifties, when the Italian economy was still struggling to start, it made an economic rifle the Ap51, then continuing with the AP55 and AP61 semi-cars.
In the sixties he decided to launch into replicas and, being a great lover of Western films, he did not hesitate to make the Colt Frontier replica, he was the first in Europe so much so that his weapon was widely used in Western Spaghetti.
With the entry into force of the anti-terrorism regulations in 1974 he made a series of replicas of military weapons chambered for the .22 long Rifle caliber, the Ap 74, a copy of the US M16 was produced in thousands of pieces and exported all over the world and officially adopted as a trainer by some armies. In addition to civilian production, the study also began of some Bull pup type weapons intended to equip the army capable of firing both with broken ammunition pump operation and with a burst of 9 gauge Parabellum cartridges.

In the eighties

began to produce and replace the barrels of military weapons in prohibited gauges, with barrels in civilian gauges allowed, becoming the industry leader in the Italian market. In the early nineties he converted the first Ak 47 for the 6 Ppc caliber and later and the Ak 74 in the .222 Remington caliber by clearing this type of weapon against Italian law. At the same time he began to develop a new cartridge as an alternative to the 9 Parabellum still forbidden today, first he made the 9 Jager based on the 9 Steyr with the case shortened by 2 mm and immediately after he made the 9 × 21 by extending the 9 by 2 mm Parabellum. The IMI learned of the project did not hesitate to put it into production even before the weapons were cataloged. The cartridge is still the most common ammunition on the Italian market today.

In the nineties

launched into the sector of the conversion of weapons of war. Thanks to a manufacturing license for war weapons, the company began to buy pieces of weapons around the world to then assemble and complete them by making semi-automatic weapons, among the best sellers are the Ak 47, the M16 the very Italian BM59 , but all types of weapons have gone from the workshop from Stg 44 to Browning BAR, from Thompson 1928 to the complete series of MAB 38, all converted to operate in semiautomatic shooting with the shutter closed without visible external interventions but only by changing the internal mechanics.
In 2001, after having sold the company branch that produced the excellent barrels to Uberti, the company name changed to NEW JAGER and focused on demilitarization and transformation for the civilian military arms market. In the following years, despite the passion still burning for this matter, but with over eighty years behind its founder, the idea of ​​selling the company began to mature.

In July 2009

the company changes ownership, the new Sole Director is Massimiliano Locci, collector and great connoisseur of weapons, coming from a company in the sector, where he held the role of sales manager and with important commercial experiences in multinationals.
In the purchase motivations as well as the passion for the sector, the history, the know-how acquired and the commercial potential of the structure had a primary reason, all characteristics that amalgamated and managed wisely are able to bring the New Jager to the top of the companies in the sector.
The first step was the recapitalization bringing the share capital from € 13,000.00 to € 100,000.00, followed by the computerization of the whole company and the increase in production and administrative staff, all with the function of adding the customer satisfaction (first armory and then final buyer) among the company's strengths.
