    Our story

    Designer and manufacturer of very high-precision rifles for more than 30 years, PGM Précision is a symbol of excellence in the field of precision and long-distance shooting.

    PGM is the exclusive designer and manufacturer of the Hecate 2, Mini Hecate 2, PGM 338, Ultima Ratio and Ludis rifles.

    Creation of PGM

    PGM precision created in 1993 is a company located in Poisy in Haute Savoie (French Alps).

    It is now part of the Teissier Technique group which specialises in precision mechanics for the aviation, armaments, luxury goods and robotics industries.

    The factory is located only a few kilometres from PGM Précision. The two companies belong to the same holding company, which allows PGM to have control over the quality of its products throughout the manufacturing process.

    Key dates:

    1991: Mr Gilles Payen created the first Ultima Ratio, for the RAID (elite unit of the French police force).

    1993: PGM Précision is created. The acronym PGM corresponds to the first letter of the name of each partner in the company: Payen, Gonnet and Morier.

    1995: PGM Précision wins the tender for the 12.7 calibre Hecate II rifles for the French army. All infantry regiments and French special forces are equipped with this weapon.

    2001: Launch of the Mini Hecate I rifle in 308W according to Swiss police specifications.

    2002: Launch of the PGM338 rifle.

    2014 : Launch of the LUDIS rifle. The Ludis is the first weapon from PGM to be designed for sports shooters. It combines the price of a good custom with PGM Precision quality.

    2018 : Launch of the Mini Hecate II, presented in preview at EUROSATORY.

    2022: launch of the new generation Ultima Ratio, inspired by the latest technological innovations proven on the Mini Hecate II.

    2023: relocation to a new factory with a four times larger manufacturing workshop and a shooting tunnel.
