Non-Firing Replica Flintlocks now legal in VICTORIA (as are others if you fit within the G.I.C).
Non-firing replica / imitation antique flintlock weapons are now legal in Victoria without need of license or exemption.
In Victoria it's actually legal to import and own many other types of replica / imitation guns if your use fits within what is know as a 'Governor In Council Exemption" that covers collecting, hobbies and theatre productions. For people who are covered by this exemption, they are all potentially legal without need of a license or Commissioner's Permit.
Covered by the GIC in Victoria are such things as:
- Membership of many collecting and historical clubs.
- Membership of many historical re-enactment clubs.
- Staging any theatrical or stage production.
