Approved firearms

Firearms approved for use in New Zealand

Semi-automatic rifles and shotguns on this list are often produced/offered for sale in "sporting configuration" (Arms Act 1983 - section 2 [Interpretation]) or military-style semi-automatic (MSSA).

Applications to import firearms are considered on a case by case basis – discuss your proposed importation with your local police arms office. You must be clear about the category of semi-automatic firearm you are importing. A special reason is required to import MSSA rifles and shotguns. The target pistols are for use at police approved pistol clubs only.
