General Airgun Discussion / Buying an air pistol.
« Last post by Novagun on Today at 07:56:10 AM »
Following on from another thread; there is no doubt that an FX Ranchero is good. No recoil, 10 shoot magazine and accurate. The down side is they are expensive and you have all the hassle of the equipment needed to recharge the air supply and that is another expense. Even just pumping up the scuba tank.
 There are other alternatives. The Hatsan spring pistols are not bad. A step up would be the Gamo PR45 SSP.
Not powerful but no recoil and accurate.
Then you could look  at a Webley Alecto. Quite powerful with multistroke pumping, accurate.
If you live in Auckland go to Ron Young in Dominion road. He has new and second hand pistols and you can try before you buy on his 10 metre range.

The condition on an import permit for a PCP pistol to be sold only to someone holding a firearms licence does not seem well founded. Restriction by bureaucratic slight. Not only that, it is ridiculous because the second sale of the pistol can not be governed by the condition of the permit.
The law allows for the sale of a PCP pistol to anyone over the age of 18 years without a firearms licence.

The 762 millimetre restriction applies only to firearms and is an addition to the common definition of a pistol.
That is designed to be held and fired in one hand.

The Edgun Leishy, I think, is less than 762 mms long but it is not a pistol because it is designed to be held and fired with two hands like the short rifle that it is.

Ok, well that's good news foe me I guess, now it's just finding one. So anything that is under 762mm long is classed as a pistol?

I'm looking at either a Benjamin Marauder of FX Ranchero pistol

as said above, air pistols, pcp or otherwise, are legal to have.

what they're trying to do is curb civillian ownership, and the ball is rolling. this was done under an import regulation (someone could search for the act...) making it basically illegal to import ~"anything which has the appearance of, or could be mistaken for, a firearm"
and pretty much dropping the guillotine on even 6mm "bb" guns coming in to nz.

also as said above, anything already in the country may be bought and sold as usual.

The way the police are now trying to control this further is by putting conditions on any import permit that gets approved for pcp pistols saying that they must be sold on to fal holders only. If that would stand up in court I would doubt it as you are right that no law has changed but I guess you would not be adhering to the condition of the permit if you sold it to someone without a fal. Police trying to flex thier muscles and stepping outside of the limits of thier role.

I think you have some poor in formation. Unless the law has changed and I am sure it has not.
You need a permit to import any air pistol into NZ, PCP or spring powered.
You do not need a firearms licence to own or possess any air pistol unless you are between 16 and 18 years of age.
You can buy an air pistol new from a dealer or anyone else without a FAL provided you are 18..
You need a firearms licence to own or possess a pcp rifle because they are declared by order in council to be a specially dangerous airgun.

The order in council does not include a PCP pistol so they are treated the same as any air pistol.
