Disposal

If you wish to dispose of your firearm or ammunition, you must either:

  • Sell the firearm and ammunition to or through a dealer; or
  • Surrender the firearm and ammunition to the police.

All sales of firearms and ammunition must be done through a licensed firearms dealer.  This includes advertising or offering to sell a firearm ( see: section 3 and section 106 of the Firearms Act 1996).

If you come into possession of a firearm that you are not authorised to have, you are required to immediately surrender it to the police.

If you have any other questions, you should contact Firearms Services.
