    Just seen this on Ginb site.
    Today we have to announce that we are no longer able to take your orders for Ginb. Unfortunately, this is due to the fact that we have to close our business. We bring this announcement with great regret, but the current conditions require us to do so. We confirm that all customers who have an order with us need not worry, because we are going to complete all orders that have already been confirmed. We thank all those who have followed and supported us in this great, amazing adventure.

    Andrea and Antonio Gentilini

    what a shame!,
    i have just received a beautiful bullpup stock in sono kembang from them, and was thinking how good it was that they are around, but now they will be another story in the history of airguns.
    i dont know why they are going to stop, but just hope that maybe one day they will be back.

    Didn't the founder become very ill some while back?

    I think if we're all candid about it, their products were really good value for money, and probably could have commanded a higher price without much loss of orders.

    They were about the only reliable source of custom stocks for US shooters. Need a UK pipeline for all the great stuff I see for sale on STB!

    Hope the GinB family is ok.

    Real shame that is. I've always found Andrea to be really helpful and enthusiastic to get the right product for the customer. Hope it's something that can be rectified.

    A real great shame, they do/did some really nice designs and were always coming up with new ones!

    Such a shame, I've had two GINB stocks one for my TX200 and the current one on my Steyr. Both are works of art and as said Andreas is a nice helpful guy to deal with. I wish them all the best in any future ventures
