You must record the details of any firearms (including pistols, restricted weapons and prohibited firearms), major firearm parts, prohibited magazines or pistol carbine conversion kits in your possession.
Depending on the type of item, this may include its:
- type (for example, shotgun, rifle, etc)
- action (for example, bolt action, semi-automatic, etc)
- identification marking (such as a serial number).
Registering your arms items will take less time if you find this information before you start.
If you have an arms item but do not have a firearms licence
You cannot register an arms item if you do not have a firearms licence. You can hand the arms item over to a firearms licence holder, firearms dealer, or you could surrender it to Police.
