ERMA
Previously manufactured by Erma-Werke GmbH, located in München-Dachau, Germany. Erma produced their only airgun, the ELG 10, in 1981, which was discontinued in the 1990s. Apparently related to pre-WWII Erfurter Maschinenfabrik. Erma (= Erma Maschinenfabrik) was relocated from Erfurt to Bavaria after WWII like the other companies (which mostly went to the Baden-Wurtemmberg region, Ulm, etc.). Having the same origin in the 1990s, Erma went back to Suhl (after near insolvency and a management buyout). In 1998, the company was officially closed. Some models and spare parts were bought and distributed by Frankonia Jagd, Würzburg (wholesaler).
Makers of blowback copies of the Luger-style firearms, such as the Beeman P-08 and MP-08 in .22 LR and .380 ACP, respectively, and copies of the U.S. M1 carbine in .22 LR (and in .22 WMR, famous as the "Jungle Carbine" in banana republics). They also produced some very little-known electro-optical shooting guns, including a version of the ELG 10, known as the EG 80 Ermatronic, and an Ermatronic copy of a Colt revolver.
