A man charged with gun offences by counter-terrorism police investigating the murder of Curtis Cheng will face court again.

Masood Zakaria, 21, appeared at Parramatta Court on Wednesday charged with possessing an unauthorised pistol, supplying a pistol to an unauthorised person and acquiring a pistol subject to a prohibition order.

Zakaria's lawyer did not make a bail application and his client will appear again at Parramatta on Thursday.

Zakaria was arrested at Westmead, in Sydney's west, just before 10am on Wednesday by counter-terror police from Strike Force Peqin.

The strike force was created to investigate the circumstances surrounding Mr Cheng's murder outside the Parramatta police headquarters in October 2015.
