Acme Firearms : Precision Quality Accuracy

Imitation Firearms

We have a limited number of front venting* blank-firing devices.

Acme Firearms LogoThese devices are constructed for the sole purpose of discharging 9mm PAK blanks and cannot be modified to fire projectiles or cartridge ammunition. In the State of Victoria, Australia these devices are not firearms.

We were fortunate to get hold of these devices from a collector. A few have been used, most have not, and all are in as new condition!

*Prohibited in WA ... Not for sale in WA ... If you are from WA don't bother asking!

Owning and/or Using in Victoria

Victorian licence and registration requirements for ‘owning’ these devices:-

A Chief Commissioners Approval for Prohibited Weapons or Governor in Council Exemption is required to own such devices.

Licence requirements for ‘using’ these devices:-

A Chief Commissioners Approval for Prohibited Weapons or Governor in Council Exemption is required to use such devices for the purpose of starting sporting events.

Rationale:-

As these devices have the appearance of working firearms, but not the functionality (nor are they capable of being modified to function as firearms), they are classified as imitation firearms (prohibited weapons) under the Control of Weapons Act 1990.

Recommended storage and safekeeping:-

Victoria Police recommend these devices be stored in a receptacle which is constructed of hard wood or steel that is not easily penetrable and is locked with a lock of sturdy construction. Any blanks or starter caps for the device should be stored in a separate locked container.

Australian States other than Victoria:-
