Does anyone know sources for the history of Hammerli target pistols?

It is my understanding that they started with the 208 in 1966, had a bunch of models including the 208s,212,215 and others, and then stopped making them in about 2006.

I would love to know details of the company. How many employees, why they stopped the business, annual sales, designers for their guns, and anything else.

Is there a book about them? Is there anything other than the very limited Wikipedia article to tell their story?
