I'm getting a IAC 1887 Lever Action Shotgun...Big Grin
 
 
 
Should arrive just in time for Xmas but won't get until after due to paper work...
 
These things are popular over here due to pump and self loading shotguns being restricted...

"These things are popular over here due to pump and self loading shotguns being restricted"

Why is that (pumps and auto's restricted) if I may ask. Is it due to the wanting to restrict # of shots or is it just a hold over of the English / continental bias about repeating shotguns? I never really understood the latter. Oh by the way I have an acquaintance that has an original winchester 1887 in very good condition and recently saw one at a shop that was in surprisingly good condition for it age. Those are the only two I've ever handled. Pretty neat old guns, though I am most enamored with J. Browning's next repeater the 1897 pump.

The ownership of pump and self-loading shotguns in Australia is not allowed unless you are either a "Primary Producer" or a recoil sensitive clay target shooter...and even then its only pumps and autos with a 5 round capacity.
 
Even if you are able to own those, you are still not able to use those when going duck or quail shooting.

What is the capacity on your shotguns there?  I understand O/U will be 2 and single shots 1.  Almost all shotguns (pump or semi auto) here have 5 shell max capacity.  You can buy magazine extensions, but I dare say over 90% of shotguns are stock with 5 shot capacity.  Water fowl hunting requires a plug to limit gun capacity to 3 shells only.  There are some exceptions to this rule.

Quote Firearms in Australia are grouped into Categories with different levels of control. The categories are:

  • Category B: Centrefire rifles (not semi-automatic), muzzleloading firearms made after 1 January 1901. A "Genuine Need" must be demonstrated, including why a Category A firearm would not be suitable.
  • Category C: Semi-automatic rimfire rifles holding 10 or fewer rounds and pump-action or semi-automatic shotguns holding 5 or fewer rounds. Category C firearms are strongly restricted: only primary producers, occupational shooters, collectors and some clay target shooters can own functional Category C firearms.
  • Category D: Semi-automatic centrefire rifles, pump-action or semi-automatic shotguns holding more than 5 rounds. Functional Category D firearms are restricted to government agencies and a few occupational shooters. Collectors may own deactivated Category D firearms.

A & B category everyone can get straight away. I've never meet someone who can own D category firearms. I suggest that the state where I live (South Australia), the number that have Category D on their licence would number no more than 100 (that's excluding the police and military).

Thanks for the response. I just don't see the basis for bias against repeating shotguns, very curious. I can understand the desire to restrict magazine capacity but that is easy enough on repeaters and I'm sure the manufactures would even make 1-2 shot magazines if it would allow them to sell into a previous closed market. I really could not care less if my pump was restricted to a two shot magazine or even a 1 shot magazine if that was the case, as I rarely shoot 3 times at anything. It just strikes me odd that the rest of the world has for the most part never embraced the repeating shotgun and seems to view it as some how unsporting. Maybe it's a didn't originate here thing since most of the early repeaters were American designs, however I believe the first pump shotgun was a French design that never did bear fruit. Anyway thanks and have a merry Christmas.
