Sarah Budge, the girlfriend of Sydney nightclub boss John Ibrahim, has not been found guilty of possession of weapons.
The jury in the trial of the 29-year-old NSW court delivered a verdict on two of the three charges late on Tuesday afternoon.
Budge was acquitted of dismantling the gun from his serial code and also owning gun ammunition.
However, they cannot agree on a third charge or she knew that the gun was stored in the cupboard of her Double Bay apartment.

Budge, 29, Sydney's girlfriend night club owner John Ibrahim, 51, has to return to the Downing Center District Court on Wednesday while waiting to find out after a third charge or knowing that a stolen Glock 26 gun was hidden in the closet from her Double Bay apartment
Budge, owner of a model and night club, had endured three long days of waiting while the jury of six men and six women considered his judgment after his retirement on Friday morning.
But she returns to Sydney's Downing Center court complex on Wednesday, while the jury continues to deliberate on the third indictment.
Budge did not plead guilty to the three armament charges that were imposed after the police found the stolen Glock 26 gun and a loaded magazine during a raid on her unit in August 2017.
During her nearly three-week trial, Budge & # 39; s lawyer Simon Buchen SC claimed that it was very likely that her friend Ibrahim or one of his co-workers had hidden the gun and ammunition in her bedroom closet.
The model and the restaurant owner testified that they did not know the items and said she had confronted her boyfriend after the gun was arrested.
She said he had told her, knowing that a gun was going to be in her apartment, he refused to tell her more, saying that she had enough problems as it was.
