State receptions, royal birthdays, on the occasion of Ramadan celebrations, public holidays, commemorations, traditional events, etc: On a wide variety of occasions, the importance of the event is underlined and highlighted with gun salutes. They are without exception blank shots without a projectile, which merely produce a report, possibly in conjunction with smoke.

Hamberger manufactures both the guns and the corresponding munitions in various calibres and successfully distributes them worldwide.

We also manufacture the corresponding saluting munitions for our guns. The customer has the choice of four calibres and two different shell casing materials. Depending on the use, a higher or lower sound pressure level may be required.

Our saluting munition fires smokelessly, which is a great advantage in the maintenance of the gun. In addition, the shooting place does not become smoke-logged after firing multiple shots.

But we are also able to produce munitions with smoke – even coloured smoke.
