Ömer Akdaş, who is from Huglu and the founder of Akdaş Arms, started working in gun-making by some of the best gunsmiths of the time. He soon built his first single barrel and opened his own gun workshop in 1948. Within a short time he was well-known for his skills and was beloved by a large group of hunters.
He was the one ever to manufacture the side-by-side in Turkey. During the time when he was in the gun manufacturing sector, he contributed a lot for the development of this field.
Sadık Akdaş, the son, joined his father in 1975 and enlarged the workshop further. As he learned every nuance of guns from his father, he started repairing all kinds of domestic and foreign guns. He started this job at the age of 13 and as the time went by he became the famous gun maker of Turkey. He was the first gunsmith every to produce a semi-automatic gun with the help of Ömer Akdaş. In 2004, he built the very first and unique English style side-lock over-und-under and side-by-side. Throughout his career he was beloved by the hunters and has been the only gunsmith to repair high end shotguns from all over the world.
