Firearms and Ammunition Act


April 12, 1928
The Reichstag has passed the following Act, herewith announced with the agreement of
the Reich Council:

Part I
General
§1
(1) In the context of this Act, firearms are weapons which operate on the principle of a bullet
or a load of shot being forced through a barrel by means of the generation of explosive gases
or compressed air.
(2) In the context of this Act, ammunition includes ready-to-use ammunition for firearms as
well as gunpowder of all kinds.
(3) Finished or prefabricated essential components of firearms or ammunition are con-
sidered to be equivalent to finished objects of this kind.

Part II
Manufacture of Firearms and Ammunition
§2
(1) Anyone who manufactures, modifies or repairs firearms or ammunition on a professional
basis must obtain a permit. The refilling of cartridges is considered to be equivalent to the
manufacture of ammunition.
(2) The issuance as well as the revocation of a permit may not be made dependent on a
determination of an applicant's need for the permit.
(3) With respect to the construction of gunpowder factories or other facilities for the
manufacture of ammunition, a permit in accordance with §16 of the Trading Regulations for
the German Reich remains mandatory.
§3
The order by means of which a manufacturer's permit is denied or revoked may be appealed
in accordance with the regulations governing protests against police orders, as these regula-
tions are set out in the legal codes of the German Lands. In cases where these regulations
do not provide for proceedings in Administrative Court, or do not admit such proceedings in

13
the case in question, the regulations set out in §§20 and 21 of the Trading Regulations for
the German Reich apply instead.
§4
If a permit has been conclusively denied or revoked, a new application for a permit may be
filed only after at least three years have passed since the conclusive decision was made
known.

Part III
Dealing in Firearms and Ammunition
§5
(1) Anyone who, on a professional basis, purchases, offers for sale, or otherwise provides
to others, either firearms or ammunition, or acts as mediator in the purchase or provision of
such items, or offers his services to effect their purchase or provision, requires a permit to do
so.
(2) The regulations of § 2 Section 2 and §§ 3,4 apply as appropriate.
§6
A permit in accordance with § 5 may not be issued to
1. junk dealers,
2. persons specified in §16 Section 1 Clause 2; exceptions may be made in accordance
with § 16 Section 3.
§7
(1) Dealing in firearms is prohibited
1. to travelling vendors,
2. at festivals, events featuring shooting competitions, and fairs, with the exception of
trade fairs.
(2) The selling and provision of ammunition required at shooting competitions is exempted
from the regulations of Section 1 No.2.
§8
Public and private pawn shops are not permitted to lend money on firearms and ammunition.
§9
(1) Beginning six months after this Act comes into force, only such firearms as bear the
name or registered trademark of the manufacturing firm or the dealer (§5) and which bear a
serial number may be professionally sold or provided to others within Germany.
(2) Firearms not identified by the name or registered trademark of a domestic manufacturer
must be marked with a manufacturing number and the name or registered trademark of a
domestic dealer.

Part IV
Purchase, Carrying, Importation and Ownership
of Firearms and Ammunition
§10
(1) Firearms or ammunition may be provided orpurchased only on submission of a Weapons
or Ammunition Acquisition Permit issued by the appropriate authorities.
(2) The acquisition permit is valid for the period of one year from the date of issue, provided
that a shorter period of validity has not been specified on it.
(3) Section 1 does not apply to:
1. the provision of firearms or ammunition at shooting booths or ranges licensed by the
police, where the firearms and ammunition are to be used on-site only;

14
2. the export of firearms or ammunition directly out of the country. In the context of the
present regulation, this includes the following:
a) the customs zones. with the exception of Helgoland and the customs zones of
Baden,
b) the foreign trade zones,
c) the trade zone of Lubeck;
3. the conveyance of firearms and ammunition by persons who, as part of their
profession, arrange for or conduct the transport of goods, particularly by haulers, carriers,
ocean shipping agents. the Postal Service, or the Railway.
§11
The following do not require a Weapons or Ammunition Acquisition Permit:
1. authorities of the Reich or the Lands as well as the German Reich Railway Association;
2. community authorities whom the highest authority of their Land has granted the right of
acquisition without an Acquisition Permit;
3. the professionals specified in §5 who are officially licensed.
§12
Holders of Weapons Permits do not require Weapons Acquisition Permits for weapons
included in the scope of the Weapons Permits.
§13
Holders of Weapons Acquisition Permits or Weapons Permits do not require Ammunition
Acquisition Permits to acquire the ammunition needed for the weapons in question.
§14
Anyone who acquires firearms or ammunition by inheritance must report this to the proper
authorities withi n six weeks of the date of acquisition. This report must detail the kind and
number of firearms and ammunition, and-in the case of gunpowder-the weight.
§15
(1) Anyone who carries a firearm outside his home, his place of business, or his fenced-in
property must carry an official permit (Weapons Permit) on his person. "Carrying a firearm"
does not include its use on shooting ranges officially licensed by the police.
(2) Provided that its validity is not expressly restricted to a smaller area, the Weapons Permit
is valid throughout the Reich proper. Through an appropriate notation on the permit, the right
to carry a firearm can be restricted to certain, clearly specified occasions and locations.
(3) A Weapons Permit is valid for a period of one year from the date of issue, provided that
a shorter period is not specified.
§16
(1) Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permits may only be Issued to persons whose
trustworthiness is not in question; further, Weapons Permits may only be issued on proven
need. In particular, permits may not be issued to
1. persons under the age of 20 years;
2. legally incapacitated or mentally inferior persons;
3. Gypsies or vagabond persons;
4. persons who have been legally sentenced to a term of imprisonment of more than
two weeks for violations of §§81, 83 to 90, 105, 106, 107, 107a, 110 to 120, 122, 123 Section
2, §§124to 130, 181a, 211 to 216,223 to 228, 240, 241,243,244,249 to 255,292 to 294,
296, 340, 361 Nos. 3, 4, 5 and 10 of the Penal Code, of §148 of the Federal Customs
Regulation of July 1, 1869 (Federal Law Gazette p. 317), of the law against the criminal and
dangerous use of explosives, June 9,1884 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 61), of the Ordinance
of the Council of People's Representatives regarding the possession of weapons, January 13,
1919 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 31 , 122), of the law regarding the disarming of the people,
August 7, 1920 (Law Gazette of the Reich p. 1553), of §§1, 2, 4 to 7, 8 No.3, §19 of the Law

15
forthe Protection of the Republic, July 21, 1922 (Law Gazette of the Reich I, p. 585), or of the
stipulations of the present Act--provided that five years have not yet passed since the
sentence was served, lapsed, orwas remitted; if the sentence was remitted after a probationary
period, the term of five years is calculated from the start of the probationary period;
5. persons under mandatory police supervision or who have been relieved of their civil
rights-for as long as these remain under mandatory police supervision or remain stripped of
their civil rights;
(2) The highest authorities of the Lands may decree that violations of state [Land] penal
codes are to be considered equivalent to violations against the federal [Reich] laws set out in
Section 1 NO.4.
(3) Exceptions to Section 1 Nos. 1, 3 and 4 may be granted on request by the relevant
authorities.
§17
(1) Persons to whom a Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit or a Weapons Permit
may not be issued, in accordance with § 16 Section 1 Nos. 1 to 5, are also not permitted to
possess firearms or ammunition, unless an exception has been granted under §16 Section
3.
(2) Persons who are not entitled to the possession of firearms or ammunition shall without
delay hand in any firearms or ammunition in their possession to the appropriate authorities for
safekeeping; they shall be given a written acknowledgement of receipt. If a person to whom
this regulation applies has a legal representative, the responsibility to comply rests with the
representative. If this person or his legal representative does not ensure that the firearms and
ammunition become available to a person entitled to their possession in the spirit of the present
law by relinquishing to such a person the right to claim return of the items in question, the
authorities responsible can require that ownership of the firearms and ammunition be trans-
ferred to themselves [the authorities] instead, in return for the payment of their market value.
Transfer of ownership is effected by means of notice being given. An appeal against the
determined market value may be addressed to the supervisory authority within two weeks;
recourse to legal action is not an option.
(3) The authorities responsible may, in exceptional cases, permit persons obliged by law to
hand in their firearms and ammunition to retain possession of these items if the facts of the
individual case guarantee that the objects will not be misused; such permission can be
withdrawn at any time.
§18
(1) The Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit is to be revoked and confiscated by the
authorities responsible if the prerequisites for its issue are not met, or are no longer met.
(2) In the case of revocation of a permit, the authorities responsible may demand that the
firearms and ammunition be turned in at the same time. The stipulations of §17 Section 2
apply as appropriate.
§19
(1) With respect to the firearms or ammunition provided to them in the line of duty, the
following persons do not require a Weapons (Ammunition) Acquisition Permit:
1. members of the German Wehrmacht, police officials in the service of the Reich or
the Lands, as well as border patrol and customs investigation officials employed with the
Financial Administration of the Reich;
2. government officials or employees whom the Reich or Land authorities responsible
have granted the right to carry firearms at specifically defined instances in the line of duty, or
to whom this right is granted by legal provisions. In such cases, the Weapons Permit is replaced
by an appropriate license or certificate, issued by the superior or supervisory authority.
. (~) If firearms or ammunition are not officially provided to persons specified in Section 1, or
If firearms other than those officially supplied are required, the superior or supervisory

16
departments are authorized to issue certificates entitling these persons to purchase or carry
a firearm.
§20
(1) If the legal provisions of a Land admit the levying of fees for issuing Weapons Acquisition
Permits or Weapons Permits, the amount of these fees will be determined by the guidelines
set jointly by the government of the Reich and the Reich Council.
(2) No fees are to be levied for issuing an Ammunition Acquisition Permit.
§21
(1) An annual hunting license issued by a German Land authorizes its owner, throughout
the German Reich and for the period of the permit's validity, to acquire hunting weapons and
handguns to the number indicated on the license, as well as to acquire ammunition for these
hunting weapons and handguns.
(2) A hunting license issued by a German Land authorizes its owner, throughout the German
Reich and for the period of the permit's validity, to carry hunting weapons on occasions of
hunting, game protection and shooting practice, as well as on the return trips involved in these
activities. A hunting license authorizes the carrying of a handgun in the same scope and
manner.
§22
(1) Importation of firearms or ammunition is permitted only with a Weapons (Ammunition)
Acquisition Permit (§ 10), a Weapons Permit (§15) or a hunting license (§21), and only to the
extent to which these permits authorize the acquisition of firearms or ammunition.
(2) This regulation does not apply to importation by the authorities and professionals
specified in §11.
§23
(1) Official authorization is required for the possession of weapons or ammunition stores
(Section 2) not belonging to a professional enterprise sanctioned by this Act (§§2, 5) and not
in the possession of one of the authorities set out in §11 Nos. 1 and 2. Only such persons
whose trustworthiness is in no way in question may be authorized. § 16 Section 1 Clause 2,
Sections 2 and 3 apply as appropriate to the granting of such authorization; §§17, 18 apply
as appropriate to its revocation.
(2) A weapons store is defined as a stock of more than five firearms of one and the same
kind, an ammunition store as a stock of more than one hundred cartridges. For hunting
weapons, a weapons store is defined as a stock of more than ten hunting weapons, an
ammunition store as a stock of more than one thousand hunting cartridges.
§24
(1) Manufacturing, dealing, importation, carrying, or possession of firearms which have been
specially designed to be rapidly disassembled beyond the measure usual for hunting and
sports purposes, or which are concealed in canes, umbrellas, piping or in similar ways
(so-called poachers' guns) is prohibited.
(2) Further, manufacturing, dealing, importation, carrying, or possession of firearms
equipped with a device to silence the report of a shot, or with rifle spotlights, is prohibited. This
ban also extends to these modifying devices in and of themselves. With respect to the
manufacture of such weapons or devices for export purposes, exceptions may be granted
upon request.

Part V

applies to anyone who deliberately or through negligence violates the juridical stipulations for
the enforcement ( §28) of the present Act.
(2) Anyone who deliberately violates the regulations set out in Section 1 after having been
twice previously convicted for deliberate or negligent violation of the same will be penalized
with a term of up to one year in prison and/or a monetary fine. This regulation does not apply
if more than three years have passed since the last conviction prior to commission of the new
offence.

Part VI

§28
The regulations required for the enforcement of this Act will be issued by the government
of the Reich, with the agreement of the Reich Council. In particular, the government of the
Reich may issue regulations pertaining to the manufacture of firearms and ammunition, to
dealing in such objects, and to the conduct of business, especially records-keeping, by such
professionals as are set out in §§2, 5. Further, it may admit of exceptions to the regulations
of the present Act which govern certain kinds of firearms or ammunition.

will cease to be in force at most six months after the present law takes effect.

18
(2) A criminal offence as detailed in § 25 Section 1 NO.1 occurs if one month lapses following
the coming into force of the present law, or, if a permit was applied for within this period, at
the end of one month after this permit was definitely refused.

ance with §25 Section 1 NO.1 occurs six weeks after this law has taken effect.

regulations and orders issued for its implementation by the government of the Reich, remain
unaffected by the present Act.
§34
(1) This law will take effect on October 1, 1928. At the same time, the Ordinance issued by
the Council of People's Representatives on January 13, 1919, (Law Gazette of the Reich p.

38
1928, (Law Gazette of the Reich I, p. 143), then, if these firearms or ammunition are subject
to the present Act, a permit such as required by §§3, 7 must be applied for within a period of

Firearms and Ammunitions Act of April 12, 1928, (Law Gazette of the Reich I, p. 143) or if they
were not addressed by these regulations.
(2) For firearms which were not addressed by the Firearms and Ammunitions Act of April
12, 1928, (Law Gazette of the Reich I, p. 143) and whose manufacturer can no longer be
determined, has ceased to exist, or ceases to exist within one year after the present law comes
into force, the identifying markings stipulated by § 10 of the present Act may be substituted
with identification consisting of the business name or registered trademark of a domestic
dealer, inscribed on the firearm.
§31
The Reich Minister of Domestic Affairs will enact the juridical and administrative regulations
required for the enforcement and supplementation of the present Act. He has the power to

the Firearms Act
March 19,1938
In accordance with §31 of the Firearms Act of March 18, 1938, (Law Gazette of the Reich I,
p. 265), the following is decreed:

Part I
General
§1
(1) In the context of this Ordinance, the "higher administrative authorities" are: in Prussia
and Bavaria, the Chairman of the Regional Council (in Berlin, the Chief of Police); in Saxony,
the District Captain; in the Saarland, the Reich Commissioner for the Saarland; and otherwise,
the highest authority of a Land.
(2) In the context of this Ordinance, the district police authorities are: the state police in
communities under state police administration; elsewhere,
in city districts: the Mayor,
in county districts: in Prussia, the District Councillor; in the other Lands, the correspond-
ing authorities.
§2
(1) Decisions made by the administrative authorities on the basis of the Firearms Act may
be appealed within two weeks. Appeals may be addressed only to the immediately superior
administrative authorities, whose decision is then final.
(2) Objections to decisions made by the Berlin Chief of Police in his capacity as local or
district police authority may be registered as formal protest, not as appeal. The Chief of Police
himself, his general representative, or a department chief of the police headquarters in Berlin
may decide on the protest.
§3
(1) In the context of §1 Section 3 of the Act, the following are deemed to be essential
components:
a) for firearms-barrel, lock, revolving breech;
b) for ammunition--ease, bullet.
(2) In the context of §1 Section 3 of the Act, prefabricated essential components are only
such objects, described in Section 1, which are in a sufficiently advanced state of manufacture
that they can be finished, and used in the assembly of ready-to-use firearms or ready-to-use
ammunition, without any special tools or machinery.
§4
Weapons operating on the principle of compressed air, and with a caliber of 7 mm and less,
are not subject to the regulations of the Act, with the exception of §§9, 24 and 25.

Part II
Manufacture of Firearms and Ammunition, and Dealing in Such Objects
§5
Issuing and revoking a manufacturer's permit (§3 of the Act) is the responsibility of the higher
administrative authorities in whose district the manufacturer has established his facilities.

40
§6
Issuing and revoking a dealership permit (§ 7 of the Act) is the responsibility of the district
police authorities in whose district the dealer has established his facilities.
§7
Manufacturing and dealership permits may be restricted to specific kinds of firearms and
ammunition.
§8
(1) The personal trustworthiness required for persons engaging in manufacture or dealing
(§3 Section 4, §7 Section 2 of the Act) is to be ascertained through an examination with
attention paid to the applicant's and the business managers' entire past histories.
(2) The mandatory personal trustworthiness is lacking particularly in persons who:
1. are not legally capable of contracting or whose capability to contract is restricted;
2. are under mandatory police supervision or who have been relieved of their civil rights
-for as long as they remain under mandatory police supervision or remain stripped of their
civil rights;
3. have been convicted of treason or high treason, or with respect to whom known facts
justify the assumption that they are engaged in activities hostile to the state;
4. for a deliberate assault on the life or well-being of others, for breach of the peace or
for trespass, for resistance to the authority of the state, for a criminal offence or misdemeanor,
for a criminal offence motivated by a desire for material gain or directed against property, or
for a hunting violation, were legally sentenced to a term of imprisonment of at least three
months, if three years have not yet passed since the term of imprisonment. Serving the
sentence is equivalent to its lapse, its remission, or its commutation to a monetary fine; in this
case, the three-year period begins on the date of the sentence's lapse, remission, or
commutation to a monetary fine. If the penalty is entirely or partially remitted after a period of
probation, the probationary period is credited towards the three-year period.
§9
(1) Professional qualifications for manufacture (§3 Section 4 of the Act) are held only by
such persons who either have passed the examination for master craftsman's diploma for the
craft practised, or for a related craft, or who are authorized to instruct apprentices in one of
these crafts. Examinations recognized under § 133 Section 10 of the Trading Regulations are
equivalent to the examination for master craftsman's diploma. The German Chamber of Crafts
and Trade Convention decides which crafts are considered to be related in the context of this
Ordinance.
(2) Professional qualifications for manufacture are further held by such persons who can
prove professionally qualified status through the completion of relevant studies at a post-
secondary institution or a state-accredited technical college, or in person before an authority
to be determined by the Chamber of Commerce. The Reich Minister of Economic Affairs and
the Reich Minister of Domestic Affairs will jointly decide on details of the professional
requirements and the examination procedure.
§10
Foreign legal entities (corporate bodies) and legal entities whose capital is largely in foreign
hands may not receive permission to engage in manufacture or dealership.
§11
Professional qualifications for dealership (§7 Section 2 of the Act) are held only by such
persons who have either, for a period of at least three years, been the proprietor of a place of
business where firearms and ammunition were sold, or who were employed as salesperson,
assistant or apprentice for a period of at least three years, or who can prove professional
qualifications before an authority to be determined by the Chamber of Commerce. The Reich

41
Minister of Economic Affairs and the Reich Minister of Domestic Affairs will jointly decide on
details of the professional requirements and the examination procedure.
§12
Commencement or conclusion of business (§4 Section 3 of the Act) must be reported by a
manufacturing firm to the higher administrative authorities and by a dealership to the district
police authorities in whose district the manufacturer's or dealer's facilities are established.
§13
Permission to conduct manufacturing or trading activities is to be revoked (§§ 5, 7 Section
2 of the Act) if, at the time of issuing the permit, the issuing authorities were not aware that
one of the reasons for denial set out in §3 Section 2 to 5 of the Act or in §8 Section 2 of this
Ordinance existed, or if one of these reasons for denial occurred subsequently. In the case of
loss or diminution of the capability to contract ( §8 Section 2 NO.1 of this Ordinance), the permit
is to be revoked only if no acting representative is brought in, in accordance with §45 of the
Trading Regulations.
§14
Temporary denial of permission to carry on the business in question (§5 Section 2 of the
Act) falls within the jurisdiction of the district police authorities in the case of manufacturing
firms, the local police authorities in the case of dealerships; these authorities are those in
whose district the manufacturer's or dealer's facilities are established.
§15
(1) Anyone who manufactures firearms on a professional basis must keep a Weapons
Register showing the whereabouts of the firearms. The Weapons Register is to be set up as
follows:
