Hi Louis 

if the rifle was deactivated before I believe 2016 it would be the old style ie- The action works 

it is illegal to sell, loan or gift 

has to be surrendered to RFD for either correct deactivation or destroyed 

(you can’t legally keep it unless it’s the newer deactivated )

the new deactivated firearms are welded so don’t work.

also the latest update 2020 you have to notify the home office that you have a deactivated firearm ( no cost involved)

 

hope that helps 

Dean

That’s brilliant thank you. I will check the paper work for the deactivation and will get it correctly deactivated if needs be. I can’t bring myself to lose it so whatever it takes. I have notified the home office that I have the gun in my possession. So we are all good there 👍

No need to panic if you cannot find the paperwork. It it was deactivated in the UK, or rather if that was certified at a UK Proof House, there will be a date stamped on the gun. Look for the two letters DA and the year it was stamped will be under those letters.
