    The live announcement was clear as mud.

    No specific mention of E category rifles.
    I'm guessing they will be gone, but until that's confirmed can't say for sure.

    Changes to firearms

    As of 3pm 21 March 2019 changes have been made by an Order in Council to ensure the immediate safety and peace of mind of New Zealand communities.

    The Order in Council [Arms (Military Style Semi-automatic Firearms) Order 2019] will bring two additional groups of semi-automatic firearms within the definition of a Military Style Semi-automatic (MSSA) firearm:

    a semi-automatic firearm that is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine (other than one designed to hold 0.22-inch or less rimfire cartridges) that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges; and
    a semi-automatic firearm that is a shotgun and is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges.
    What do I do if I have a firearm that will now be defined as a MSSA?
    Police encourages any person in possession of a firearm that is now classified as an MSSA to notify Police to arrange to handover the firearm to Police.

    How do I hand in my firearm to Police?
    Please ensure before you hand over your firearm to Police you contact us first to make an appointment, whether that means you bring it to Police at an allocated time, or Police employees come to you to collect the firearm.

    Please notify Police using the online form (which will be available here shortly) or you can call 0800 311 311 for support.

    Please ensure if Police organises for you to bring your firearm to us that you transport it using a firearm carry case or a non-descript bag.

    Next steps
    The Government has signalled there will be further changes made over the coming weeks to ban all military style semi-automatics and assault rifles permanently.

    As Police continues to develop processes we will continue to update information on this web page.

    So in effect semi- autos with detachable magazines (other than rimfire) are banned.
    Tube mag / fixed mag's appear to currently be unaffected.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    SKS should be unaffected by whats been announced so far. Looks like the value of them will skyrocket.
