A replica weapon is a reasonable facsimile or copy of a weapon, even if it is not capable of discharging a projectile or substance, or a Category A, B or C weapon that has been rendered permanently inoperable or a hand grenade that is inert.
For Category A, B, C and H non-firing replica weapons no weapons licence is required.
Restrictions apply to other categories of non-firing replicas. Inquiries should be made with Weapons Licensing prior to purchasing any non-firing replicas.
Refer to section 6A of the Weapons Act 1990 for further information.
