Antique firearms other than Category H​​

An antique firearm other than a Category H firearm does not require registration. However, you should ensure that the firearm fits the definition to be classed as antique.

Antique firearms that do not fit the definition

If the firearm you wish to acquire does not fit the definition (eg. because ammunition is commercially available) you will need a Weapons Licence and a Permit to Acquire to obtain it.

If you believe the firearm you wish to acquire should be classed as an antique, you can apply to Weapons Licensing to have it approved as such. The Antique Firearms Questionnaire can be used for this purpose.
