Firearms Registry now up and running

The new Firearms Registry opened on 24 June 2023.

It is now mandatory for firearms licence holders to provide information about their firearms items. The development of the Firearms Registry follows major changes to New Zealand’s firearms laws made after the March 2019 terrorist attacks at two Christchurch mosques.

Firearms owners must register:

  • Non-prohibited firearms, including Specially
  • Dangerous Airguns (PCPs)
  • Prohibited firearms and magazines
  • Pistols
  • Restricted weapons
  • Major parts, and
  • Pistol carbine conversion kits.

You must also register firearms that do not work.

Antique firearms or airguns are not required to be registered. Registration is also not required for ammunition in your possession, nor do you need to record sales or purchase of ammunition to or from other firearms licence holders.

You can register online here: https://www.firearmssafetyauthority.govt.nz/firearms-registry or by phone at 0800 844 431 (04 499 2870) 8.30am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
