    Making a firearm...legalities

    Hey all

    Does anyone know what the legalities are around making your own rifle / shotgun if you have the relevant category on your licence?

    I remember a few years back one of the guys at the auckland pistol club made a .44 automag from scratch from castings he made himself but I don't remember legally what he had to do. BTW the automag was an awesome beast of a thing!

    cheers
    Tracy

    Talk to your AO.

    I made a black powder Canon.

    Didn't have to do anything as its classed as an unrestricted firearm.
    @homebrew.357 recently made an awesome Rifle he may have some advise for you.

    Cheers

    You can make one, so long as you do not intend to sell it. If you want to sell them you need a dealers licence.

    Note (3) - A dealer's licence SHALL be issued. I've heard stories of PNHQ being a bit fussier than that when it comes to dealer's licences.

    That's what I heard, in the black powder clubs guys making cannons and muzzle loading rifles for them self's, the no no is don`t sell them. So away I went, the rest is history as they say. And when I had my gun security checked , " O you've got one of those old muzzle loading guns" . didn't say I`d made it and they know is to hard to do anyway.

    Actually @40mm if you take that in isolation there's not much they are worried about.

    Wounder where this stands legally?

    very cool, i made one from a small dry powder fire extinguisher. just welded an airline fitting to the top to pressurise it, and some fuel line to extend the nozzle, tied the trigger on, and a tin with diesel/rag for the pilot. then about 60m of air line... just filled the thing with petrol and lit the pilot and walked back to the compressor to plug in the air line.
    made a nice effect for a couple dollars of fuel! about a 6x1m pillar of fire straight up (or something like that.... might have been drunk, and it was years ago)
    not keen on being anywhere near it though...

    Of course you fucking can't.

    Read the Anti-Personnel Mines Prohibition Act 1998 and the Cluster Munitions Prohibition Act 2009.
