Henry Krank & Company Ltd has been well-known in the UK gun trade for over 40 years. With a combined knowledge of the industry spanning several decades, the team at Henry Krank delivers a wealth of information on everything for shooters and collectors.

Henry Krank hasn’t always been known by the same distinctive name. The company was previously run under the name of John Longstaff who was based in Armley, Leeds. As the business grew, Longstaff relocated to Pudsey in the 1960s.

Zoran Nikacevic took ownership of the company in 1985.

An avid shooter from a young age, Zoran started out by running a gun repair and firearms business in the Bradford area. A keen collector of antiques, Zoran remembers purchasing his first antique in the early 1960s – a pistol without a hammer that he had to make himself. This passion for antiques has never dissipated. Thanks to Zoran’s expertise, Henry Krank is highly regarded for its incredible variety of antique arms & armour. You can view our full antique collection here.

Zoran was an active member of the UK Gun Trade Association, which represents the sporting, recreational and professional gun trade. From 1998 to 2023, he sat on the Council as a board member, helping to promote and protect the industry.

For many years, the company has operated as a family business, with Nikacevic’s two daughters joining the close-knit team. Working together, they have grown the company’s online presence to satisfy an ever-increasing demand from individual enthusiasts to gun clubs and trade, all while establishing Henry Krank as the country’s go-to specialists on muzzle loading, black powder, reloading, ammunition and antique arms & armour along the way.

Henry Krank is proud to be the sole UK importers of Prvi Partizan (PPU), Pedersoli, Uberti and Pietta, amongst many other leading brands.
