Black powder, percussion caps and flints (209 primers are also available) are available from Mkonto Manufacturing’s Johannesburg works. For those hunters accustomed to using black powder substitutes like say PIRODEX unfortunately this type of propellant is not available in South Africa as yet.

In addition to this, Mkonto Manufacturing, as licensed and registered gunsmiths, can issue firearms confirmation certificates, which are necessary to confirm that a muzzle loader is either an original muzzle loader (made prior to 1 January 1900) or an exact copy of one. This type of certificate is needed if you wanting to purchase black powder without a firearm licence or if you want to deregister an already registered licensed firearm.

Founded in Benrose in 2004, our most experienced gunsmith has 3 decades of experience in the industry.

We have a modern, well-equipped works, which is one of, if not the largest privately owned firearms manufacturing concern in Africa.

Our manufacturing capabilities enable us to offer firearms that will meet even the most discerning client’s needs, be they for a bespoke rifle or shotgun, long range tactical sniper rifle, machine carbines or pistols for security or military applications. Alternatively we are able to design and produce a new firearm which will meet our client’s specific needs.

Testing the firearm is done on site, at our test range facility. In addition to this facility we have access to a number of shooting ranges, with shooting distances varying from 25 meters up to 1000 meters, as well as specialised clay pigeon target ranges.

Due to the nature and capabilities of the company, we are able to offer a complete turnkey service to our clients, from the initial design concept through to the final product. We are also willing to undertake one off commissions in addition to larger production orders.
