Formalito currently stocks a wide range of products and brands in the following categories: centre and rimfire rifles, shotguns, handguns, air rifles, ammunition, reloading equipment and components, knives, telescopes, binoculars, outdoor and shooting accessories

The wide variety of products and exceptional service synergize the future of the company and the commitment by its team: As long as there’s hunting and the outdoors, Formalito will try to meet the needs of suppliers and hunters alike.


We serve the South African market from a centrally located distribution centre. Our offices and warehouse are located on the corner of Amkor street and Pretorius Avenue in Lyttelton Manor (Centurion, Pretoria).

Our 15,000 square feet, 3-storey building, has been in operation for more than 30 of our 57 years with support warehousing to help with overflow in peak periods.
