Customer and Community Services director, Ian Maxwell, says the five shotguns are now prohibited because their magazines contain one more round than is permitted.
He says police have told the council to store the guns in a safe, while they wait for instructions as to how and when the firearms can be handed over.
Ministers and the police are holding news conferences tomorrow to release more details of the gun buyback.
