Weapons

Through its members, re-enact SA has access to a variety of real, de-activated and replica weapons that allow each squad to be equipped with the appropriate period mixture of rifles, sub-machine guns and light machine guns.

 

Generally rifles are used with blank ammunition to simulate the action and sound of real rifle fire. Re-enact SA also operates a blank firing mortar.

 

Automatic weapons are equipped with oxygen/propane gas firing systems that simulate the sound of automatic fire, but without an ability to chamber or fire a projectile. The gas firing simulation systems are fitted into both de-activated and replica weapons.

Re-enact SA takes safety very seriously and we have mandatory safety protocols and training which includes the safe handling of weapons - real or otherwise.

All firearms and blank ammunition are stored and used in compliance with relevant Firearms legislation.

 

Members who operate firearms are appropriately licensed by SAPOL for this purpose.

 

All weapons comply with relevant SA Firearms legislation.
