Thread: SA made guns

  1. #1

    Default SA made guns

    Hi,

    I am trying to make a complete list of guns manufactured, designed or re enginered in South Africa during the years of sanctions. I have come across a few names of guns that I do not even know if the exist. In relation to certain others, I am in need of further information. Does any one know anything about the following weapons:

    Varan PMX-80 (pistol)
    CX 635 ASP (pistol)
    Vektor 98 (rifle)

    Also I wonder if any one can tell me which company manufactured the Lynx/Rooikat revolvers?

    I would also love a picture of the Musler shotgun which seems to be impossible to find on the web.

    I was once shown a South African made shotgun with a drum magazine which was reloaded through a twist of the front hand grip which seemed to be geared. From what I can tell, it was not a Striker. Does any one recognise any model from this description?

    Most greatful for any input!

    The shotgun you are looking for is the Protecta.

    Kommando and Sanna 77, both 9mmP subguns, and I think the Sanna was first made north of the border and is a copy on the Czech VZ48 if I remember correctly.

    Maybe post the list of names you have already so we can fill in the blanks.
