dont buy guns in thailand. my uncle bought one of those and it dont work. And yes, its damn expensive, RM1500 each, comes with free 7 bullets. The trigger malfunctions and the bullet fails to reload almost constantly. And the pak guards you see in the bank, they only carry those shotguns without their ammo. And those crime stories you heard on the news, they use stolen guns from the army or bought them from a corrupt officer. Every year, 250 guns from all police departments in malaysia are reported missing and researches on this matter is usually taken lightly by the cops.
These guns, purchased from the cops cost a crapload to own, you need to dish out 6000 to 7000 each, but at least you got a new, hi quality pistol, reportedly made in america. The only setback is, its illegal to own one. Death penalty is only applicable for singaporean citizens that owns an illegal firearm in singapore, but in malaysia, only prison and 10 strokes of lashes.
About shotguns... My granpa got one but now he's deceased so the cops got a hold to it. And again for those ppl who wondered, wtf did the criminals got the shotguns in the news? Its either from 1960's where each villagers are given a free shotgun to protect their homes from communists or they stole it from the police or from the pak guards.
Any dolts with decent knowledge of firearms can tell if a gun is in good conditions.
Check the wear on parts like the ramp, extractor, inner slide and so on. Check mag springs and follower. Triggers shouldn't have too much slack and so on lah. Barrel should not have pitting and head space should not be excessive.
And the maximum penalty of owning illegal weapons is death in Malaysia. Well documented, just look the relevant laws up.

Why would Thread Starter want to buy a gun for? Self protectionism? Sorry, no can do for a normal civilian.
You can, just have a good reason (eg; your ex keeps trying to kill you and the police have not been able to get there on time to nab him, you're also a target due to the fact you carry alot of cash on you and so on)
Fill out the RM1 form and you're good to go.
