Basically, a straight pump action bolt. Like a right-bolt action rifle, simply ridiculous. Some antique firearms (usually muzzle-loading black powder envelope firearms manufactured before January 1, 1901) may be legally held in some states without a license.  In other countries, they are subject to the same requirements as modern firearms.  Prime Minister John Howard pressured states to adopt as national firearms accord the proposals on the Firearms Act made in a 1988 report of the National Committee on Violence, which led to the non-binding National Firearms Agreement (NFA) between the Commonwealth and the states and territories, since the Constitution of Australia does not give the Commonwealth direct authority to: Enact firearms laws. In the face of opposition from some states, Howard threatened to hold a national referendum to amend the Australian constitution to give the Commonwealth constitutional power over firearms.  The National Firearms Convention included a ban on all semi-automatic rifles and all semi-automatic and shotguns, as well as a licensing and property control system. The power rests with immigration minister Peter Dutton. In order to enforce the moratorium on leveraged rifles, in 1956 he introduced a regulation amending customs regulations (prohibited imports). This added to the prohibited list “a lever-operated shotgun with a firearm magazine with a capacity of more than five rounds.” From 1984 to 1996, several murders caused public concern. The Milperra massacre in 1984 was a significant incident in a series of conflicts between various “outlaw biker gangs.” In 1987, Melbourne witnessed the Hoddle Street Massacre and the Queen Street Massacre. In response, several States required the registration of all weapons and restricted the availability of self-loading rifles and shotguns.
In the Strathfield massacre in New South Wales in 1991, two people were killed with a knife and five others with a gun. Tasmania passed a Firearms Buyers Act in 1991 to obtain a licence, although enforcement is weak. Gun laws in Tasmania and Queensland have remained relatively relaxed for long guns. Despite their relatively low categorization, lever guns can still fire extremely quickly, which was a cause for concern. Here is an illustration of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2. In this (exaggerated) sequence, Schwarzenegger fires a Marushin M1887 lever shotgun. In 2015, the importation of the Adler A110 lever gun into Australia sparked controversy. The firearm itself could hold up to 7+1 shot (perhaps 10+1) in its magazine, a relatively high capacity for a shotgun, and its ability to fire relatively fast follow-up shots as a leveraged firearm. However, the problem with the Eagle A110 that caused the most controversy was that it was a Category A firearm, making it accessible to almost all licensed shooters.  This led to an import ban on A110 shotguns with a capacity of more than 5 cartridges (up to 5 rounds were still approved for import).
Lever rifles with a magazine capacity of more than 5 rounds were later reclassified as Category D firearms.  Section 51(xxxi) of the Australian Constitution requires “just conditions” (financial compensation) for forcibly acquired property, so the federal government introduced the Medicare Levy Amendment Act in 1996 to increase the projected cost of A$500 million through to a one-time increase in the Medicare tax. The “arms buyback programme” began on 1 October 1996 and ended on 30 September 1997. The Australian National Audit Office reported that the system had forcibly acquired more than 640,000 firearms, many of which were semi-automatic rifles and shotguns (which were restricted due to the 1996 legislative changes) or old, old and dysfunctional firearms.  The decision annoyed many people for many different reasons. The gun lobby was furious that all types of leveraged weapons were subject to an import ban. Pro-gun politicians like Lleyonhjelm and some members of the National Party have spoken out against it. Holy. And I thought we Canadians had gone wrong.
Laughing out loud. One thing we have that`s cool is that it`s worth carrying shotguns that don`t require special shapes etc. As long as it is done, it is not hacked and the total length is more than 26.” All right. Shooting clubs have existed in Australia since the mid-19th century. Their main concern is to protect the viability of hunting, collecting and targeting sports. Australian shooters see their sport as permanently threatened by increasingly restrictive laws. They argue that they have been scapegoated by politicians, the media and anti-gun activists for the actions of criminals who typically use illegal firearms. Their researchers found little evidence that the increasing restrictions have improved public safety, despite the high costs and strict regulatory barriers imposed on shooters in Australia.   There is a lot of interest in the eagle-lever shotgun, but the problem is much bigger than that.
