THE case against a man accused of selling replica firearms at AgQuip has been adjourned as prosecutors consider if it will eventually move to a higher court.
Jaincong Zheng was excused from appearing in Tamworth Local Court on Monday when the case was briefly mentioned.
Police prosecutors have referred the case to the DPP to prosecute, which could mean it is moved to the district court for a trial, or sentence if a plea is entered.
Police will allege the replicas - 45 pistols, 18 air pistols, 42 sub machine guns and one assault rifle - were being offered for sale. The officers seized all of them and more than $5000 cash.
Zheng is facing seven charges and has not been required to enter pleas.
Magistrate Julie Soars adjourned the case for two weeks for prosecutors to decide if the case will be heard in the local or district court. Zheng remains on conditional bail.
