Got a reply from SA Firearms Branch... which reads more like a guess or interpretation than quoting from any source.

My understanding of the item you have mentioned and what pictures were available on the internet I am confident that the item would be classed as a children’s toy and therefore exempt for the firearm regulatory process.
There would be no licence requirement to possess, buy or sell.
Importation is controlled by the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service but there would be no objection to importation by SA police.
I hope this answers your questions.
If that is true, it means that it should be free to import... and if Customs seize it, call them up and tell them that the SA Police have no objection to its importation.
(after reading through any paperwork Customs sends you)
