A certain movie of Brad Pitt’s revolves around a very special Spanish rifle that was as beautiful as it was historically important. Ever since I watched the movie, I have wanted a rifle similar to that one to own as my own.
This VO Vapen rifle sounds way cooler than the Spanish rifle I lost sleep over. VO Vapen was founded by gunsmith Viggo Olsson and deals with the crafting of exclusive handmade hunting rifles. Featured above is the Royal Collection UAE Edition which costs $525,000 and of which only 100 pieces were made. The best by VO Vapen, however, is a one of a kind rifle with engraved grip cap, gold inlays and 36 multicoloured diamonds was made as a tribute to H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the mosque named after him in Abu Dhabi. Priced at a staggering $825,000, the rifle is crafted in the design of a chandelier at the mosque.
The custom made rifles boast of perfect accuracy and a clientele of famous names like Ernest Hemingway and H.R.H. Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte of Sweden. The least expensive of these rifles even, though, costs $125,000.
