Are semi-automatic weapons legal
Firearms in the sense of Austrian gun law are weapons with which solid bodies (projectiles) can be fired in a definable direction with one barrel.
There are three categories of firearms:
Category A: Prohibited weapons and war material
The prohibited category A weapons include, for example:
- Shotguns (shotguns) with a total length of less than 90 cm
- Shotguns with a barrel length of less than 45 cm
- Forearm bolt action shotguns ("pump guns")
- Camouflaged firearms (e.g. "shooting ballpoint pen")
- Prohibited cutting weapons such as brass knuckles, killers and steel rods
- Handguns with center fire with (integrated or attached) magazine that can hold more than 20 cartridges
- Semi-automatic rifles with centerfire ignition with (integrated or attached) magazine that can hold more than 10 cartridges
- Center-fire handgun magazines that can hold more than 20 cartridges
- Magazines for semi-automatic rifles with center fire that can hold more than 10 cartridges
Category B: handguns, repeating shotguns and semi-automatic firearms
Category B firearms are handguns (revolvers, pistols), bolt-action shotguns and semi-automatic firearms that are not war material or prohibited weapons.
Category C: Firearms with rifled or smooth barrel, unless category A or B
- Rifles with at least one rifled barrel that have to be reloaded manually after each shot
- Rifles with exclusively smooth barrels that have to be reloaded manually after each shot
Deviating from this are: Forearm repeater ("Pumpgun") = category A and repeater = category B
An overview table of the categories and authorizations can also be found on oesterreich.gv.at.
