    In New Zealand, can a private citizen own what would be considered in the U.S. an "assault weapon"? That is, a weapon with two or more of the following: flash hider, bayonet mount (gasp!), pistol grip, collapsable stock, grenade launcher(we all know what a problem those are here).

    Yes

    Ownership of an MSSA [Military Style Semi Automatic] though requires an "E class" endorsement on your license. The endorsemsnt requires a police approved safe, $200 fee/ten year duration, and an interview with an Arms Officer.

    Some Arms officer's will expect you to be a member of a service rifle type club, especially if you are applying in an urban area.

    Semi Auto's such as the SKS, Browning BAR, Ruger Mini 14, most semi shotguns, etc are available on the standard "A class" license because they are not as "war like". That's what it say's in the Arms Code.:rolleyes:
