  • Crossman 1077 Air Rifle Magazines

    Hi.....

    This was sent out by SARPA ( South Australian Revolver and Pistol Association ) in a mail out to member Clubs.

    FIREARMS (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

    There is a new clause prohibiting a person from acquiring, owning or possessing a detachable magazine with a capacity of more than 10 rounds without written approval of the registrar. It also includes a six-month transitional provision during which time owners can hand them in. In debate in the other place, the minister did concede that this clause required further attention with regard to its practical implementation.

    No mention of class of Firearm. In SA all air rifles are in the same class as .22 rifles

    Now this appears not to be a rumour and I would love to know what this means to a Crossman 1077 air rifle. These air rifles have a 12 shot magazine

    Can anyone on here offer direction or do I contact the Police?

    And the HW100s are 14 shot mags. That would really piss a few people off.
    Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.

      Could also piss off a lot of FX owners as many of these rifles have 12 shot mags

    Sigh, My 1077 paperwork got submitted a week ago. Guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.

        I'm more worried that they will approve my PTA and then hassle me for owning an illegal item that they just approved me for.

        Thanks for keeping us updated Paul.

        Hi All,

        I sent the following at 9:15 today:

        Hi...

        I have heard that any firearm with a magazine in excess of 10 shots is now illegal, unless the registrar gives permission. How do I seek permission to keep my Crossman 1077 air rifle? It has a 12 shot magazine. I do not want to break the law.

        If permission is not granted can you please tell me how I can get compensation?

        Paul

        The first rely was :

        I will post anymore replies. I do hope that this is wrong as its really silly. SARPa are not all that brilliant...has anyone heard anything from SSAA ( btw I just joined SSAA even though I do not shoot at a SSAA range)

            More ridiculous laws that will only inconvenience the law-abiding and make absolutely NO difference to any criminals - Sub-12FPE Air-Rifles like the Crosman 1077 should`nt even be classified as `firearms`in the first place.

            Obviously someone must have identified harmless backyard plinking as a serious threat to humanity - Looks like we`ll all just have to file for complete refunds on our glorified-pea-shooters and go out and equip ourselves with pump-action centre-fire rifles instead

              The proposed legislation was passed with the exception of the amendments to magazine capacities. Going to pick up my 1077 tomorrow!

                That's good news for you guys over in SA then. Here in NSW we have a 10-round detatchable magazine limit for centrefires and a 15-round for rimfires (and no limit for ARs that I am aware of), however the emphasis is on detatchable; my .22 lever holds 15x lr rounds in it's tube mag and 22x shorts however is completely legal as the magazine is seen as not readily detachable. i suspect that had this restriction actually gone through in SA then they would have looked at the rotary AR mag as perhaps not falling into the class of a DBM?

                Hi

                Thats great! The sad thing is that I am STILL awaiting a reply from SAPOL. You think that they would answer the emails that people send.

                I can understand why people just think SAPOL are only interested in booking people.

                I can be shooting in peace.

                Hi...

                After a nice wait the reply came from SAPOL today. I have removed the officers name....

                Paul

                Thank you for the enquiry which has been forwarded to me for a response.

                The current laws do not restrict magazine sizes.
                I know of no current plan to change this situation.
                The issue was discussed in parliament but the decision was not to introduce such a change.
                Several circulating rumours relating to magazine sizes were not accurate.

                I hope this answers your question.

                Cheers

                Well there you go...from the mouth of the horse....
