Important Information About Leagal Definition

Of U.K. Deactivated Guns (A Guide)

 Broadly speaking the terms  Old Spec and New Spec only applies to Sub Machine Guns , Semi Automatic Rifle and Assault Rifles.  Every other type of weapon should have full moving parts and be able to strip.  Lately, some dealers have been charging high prices for `old spec’ bolt action rifles and `old spec’ pistols in an attempt to mislead.  For a more detailed explanation, with exceptions, please see below.

 I have lost my U.K. Deactivation Certificate What Can I Do?

In the UK, there are two main types of deactivation standards – Pre 95 and Post 95. Simply, after October 1995 the way in which deactivation was carried out was changed by law. Below we will run through the different weapon types and the different specifications for deactivation requirements. Please note, these are guidelines only, but hold true for most deactivated weapons.

NOTES:

Even post 95 .22 calibre semi automatic rifles can have full working actions and be stripped.

Submachine Guns, Assault Rifles and Machine Guns deactivated before 1990 are the same as pre 95 spec, but may have a removable barrel (very rare, but was passed by the proof house). They may also have only one deactivation stamp on the receiver. The earlier the guns were deactivated, the more irregular the rules become.

U.K.Deactivated

Anyone over the age of 18 can purchase and own deactivated guns.  We only sell to genuine collectors and enthusiasts.  We will report anyone we think is going to be a danger to themselves or the public.  All deactivated guns are issued with a deactivation certificate from either the London or Birmingham proof Houses. This certificate has the guns details on it and the serial number of that specific gun. It is not illegal to buy or sell guns without the certificate, but the burden of proof that the gun is legal to own is on you, the owner. All weapons should be stamped (see above) anyway, but the correct certificate helps with police inspection, etc. If you have mislaid your certificate then a new one can be issued by the relevant proof house for a small fee.
