Our Story


PSE-Composites was established in 2010 by Edmund Graef and his sons Peter and Stephan. Being a keen hunter and successful engineer, Edmund decided to build his own stock for his Howa 1500 SA rifle when he didn't find a stock on the market to satisfy his needs. Edmund's vast knowledge in material science and composite materials enabled him to build a light, extremely rigid and strong carbon fibre stock for his own Howa 1500 SA hunting rifle. It was soon realised that Edmund wasn't the only hunter locally struggling to find a rifle stock that met all the requirements and so Peter and Edmund decided to look into manufacturing carbon fibre rifle stocks for hunters and target shooters around the world.

Peter has a strong interest in business studies and so decided to take it on as a project in secondary school to set up the rifle stock business. He registered the name "PSE-Composites", which is composed of the three founding members' names. Initially Edmund developed a carbon fibre stock for the Howa 1500 SA and PSE started exporting them to the first customers in Europe. Considerable investment in research and development has contributed to the growth of PSE-Composites within the market. PSE now manufactures high-end carbon fibre stocks for a variety of factory and custom rifles including Tikka T3, Remington 700 and Howa 1500 and the product range is continuously expanding. PSE-Composites' goal is to supply carbon rifle stocks of the highest quality and performance to hunters and target shooters on a global scale.
