Plenty under one roof

MEC in  Dortmund,  three  letters  which  have  become  a legend in shooting circles orldwide.  On two floors and now 700 square metres of the Hannöverschen Straße No. 22, a wide range of products and services encompassing the target shooting sports are on offer.

The core sector is the development and production of high-quality equipment items. Many of our ideas have been adopted and are valued both by top shooters and within the club environment.

The  publishing  house  MEC  currently  offers  8  titles  (in German language, 3 in English) which are regularly updated and which are being translated into ever more languages.  Alongside are 25 teaching posters and other media such as relaxation programmes and video films.  This catalogue is a further creation by our publishing operation.  We also  offer  our  photographic,  information and effective advertising  services  to  other  concerns  operating  in  this market.  

The fundamental ideas are created by Maik Eckhardt and Johann Zähringer together with top shooters from all over the world. The prototypes are then subsequently and thoroughly tested. Only a prototype that has proven itself is released for construction.

The products from centra and MEC complete each other well because they are created with a simiar philosophy. Together our workpieces guarantee a high standard of quality and precision, because we know the value of these virtues in competitions.

Commensurable with Rheinfelden being the ‚mekka‘ of sight techniques, the interests in Dortmund evolve around mounting. So what would be more obvious than to consolidate our assortments and to present them conjointly? And this is how an unbeatable team came about!

Ergonomical shapes support the function while you are in your shooting position, the design gives your rifle the chic style. The MEC products also lead the market when it comes to creativ impulses, some of them being now taken up by others.

The products are manufactured in fine mechanical firms to assure that the function and quality remains consistant for larger numbers. Every part is milled from one piece, the surfaces are sealed which enables you to enjoy our products for a long time.

The whole is more than the sum of its parts.  In this sense you can view MEC as a living undertaking, which is active in almost all sectors of the shooting sports. We conduct high-performance sport and we develop our ‘hardware’, such as buttplates, high-quality stocks and rearsights, on the basis of our experience. The ‘software’ consists of tea-ching aids and the practical training opportunities. 

Our activities are based on our love of shooting in itself. Whether it be the qualification to the Olympic Games, the German  Championships,  or  the  bench-rest  cup  in  the neighbouring village, millions of shooters around the world share the same basic problems, which one gets to grips with for better or for worse in every competition.  Victory is not necessarily the most fascinating aspect; it is more the desire for the next chance, which once more oconfronts us with some hours of excitement...

The MEC Team with Maik Eckhardt & Heinz Reinkemeier

wish you good shooting.
