Approved Licensed Dealers around New Zealand are now able to accept prohibited firearms and parts on behalf of NZ Police as part of the amnesty and buy-back.
Dealers are in more than 30 locations from Kaitaia to Invercargill and include some Hunting & Fishing retail outlets, Gun City branches and independent firearms dealers.
A list of participating dealers and their contact details is listed below. Firearms owners should contact their local dealers to make a booking.
Should you wish to hand in your prohibited firearm/s to an Approved Licensed Dealer, please note the following:
- Booking systems will be in place – please check their website for details and then contact the dealer via email or phone to book a time to drop in your firearms
- You may hand in up to three (3) prohibited firearms as listed on the buy-back price list
- You may also hand in up to five (5) prohibited parts, magazines or accessories per firearm - note they must be an accessory to the firearm you are handing in
- You may hand in other firearms you no longer wish to have in your possession under Amnesty.
Before turning up to the approved Dealer, please remember to bring the following with you:
- Your firearms licence (if applicable)
- Photo identification (drivers licence or passport)
- Your bank account number
- Your online notification reference number (use the online notification form)
- All your prohibited items, cleared of all ammunition
- Any other non-prohibited firearm/s or parts you wish to hand-in.
Hand-ins at dealers is one of a number of channels for handing-in firearms and/or parts for buy-back or amnesty. Other options include collection events, bulk-picks if you have more than 10 items, or hand-ins at Police stations. If you do have more than 10 items, please select that option via the online notification form and Police will be in touch with you to arrange a suitable time to collect from your premise.
Buy-back price list and payment
To receive compensation for prohibited firearms you are required to have a valid firearms licence. A copy of the latest Buy-back price list is available (PDF 944KB).
Please be aware that after handing in firearms to a dealer, Police will then uplift these firearms and contact owners to discuss the condition of the firearms against the price list. After confirming this assessment, online processing begins and owners can expect payment within 10 working days, after assessment.
Police may be on site at some dealers at specific times for those people that want a face-to-face assessment of their firearm/s, or may have questions regarding the modification process and unique prohibited items. Please contact your dealer website to see when Police will be on site.
