Circular 001/2021: Antique firearms

Circular providing advice on legislative changes affecting antique firearms. The changes come into effect on 22 March 2021.



The law on antique firearms is changing. From 22 March 2021 some firearms previously regarded as antique, and therefore exempt from control, no longer qualify as such and must now be licensed. Owners of these firearms must act by 23:59 on 21 September 2021 to license them or lawfully dispose of them.
