Kriger is the Norse word for warrior. In keeping with Norse legends, we found this suiting to name the firearm. 

Asgard Defense is located on the outskirts of Flagstaff, Arizona. Our team is comprised of, first and foremost, firearm enthusiasts. The focus of all of our efforts is the Kriger shotgun, and we are currently stepping up on-site production capabilities with the addition of new equipment and employees. Our overriding commitment is to the quality of the Kriger shotgun. This will not be sacrificed for the sake of mass production. Our goal is to provide you with a reliable, well-built shotgun that you can feel confident in the design, construction, and performance. 

The company was founded by Jeff Costa, who is a CNC machinist and rapid prototyper with extensive experience building all manner of firearms-related parts and accessories. The owners are military veterans, who know what it is like to rely on firearms for their lives and the lives of others. This deep understanding of the importance of a firearm’s ruggedness, reliability and function is the cornerstone of Asgard Defense’s design philosophy.

The M127 series of Kriger modular shotgun system is the culmination of decades of experience designing and manufacturing firearms components and accessories. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art CNC machining centers and other equipment. This equipment allows the team to manufacture firearms with a high degree of precision. 

Asgard Defense has invested more than five years into the design and testing of the Kriger shotgun. It has been a long, often frustrating road, but we believe the product of these efforts is well worth the long hours invested.
