How is a real gun deactivated in the UK?

Ok, we all know you can`t have live Uzi 9mm here in the UK, so how do we get our hands on the deactivated ones? Well, they are usually sourced from big arms fairs in Eastern Europe and Germany, purchased in bulk and then brough into the UK via a section 5 firearms dealer (there are not many of these chaps around...), they then go through the process of deactivating them in line with current UK specifications set out by the Home Office. This process varies form gun to gun - revolvers are deactivated differently from a semi-auto, bolt action rifles are done differently from shotguns etc. - you only really know from checking our descriptions. If we look at a WW1 Bristish SMLE bolt action rifle for example, the gun is stripped down to its component parts, the barrel and breach have a long 5mm wide cut made along the underside (covered by the woodwork so it can`t be seen) and a rod of steel is welded in place. The firing pin is removed and the bolt face is cut at angle of 45 degrees - again, you can`t see this unless its stripped down. The deactivated gun is now taken to either the London or Birmingham Proof Houses (only two in the UK) and are checked, stamped and issued with a certificate listing details such as serial number, make, model, barrel length etc. - its then official a deactivated gun and license is required in the UK to own it - as long as you are over 18. The parts are then carefully re-assembled and its shipped to us, ready to go. Now, one question that does come up from time to time is can it be reactivated? Could the rod be cut out, the cut welded up, a new bolt sourced, plus firing pin and ammo? Well if you did manage to do all that (and just don`t even think about it) the pressures created in the breach would cause the wleded breach and barrel to instantly rupture - blowing the gun up in your face and doing you a lot of damage - plus a serious section 5 firearms offence and spell in jail... So just enjoy the history, detail and stories these deactivated tell and keep collecting!

We list details of our current stock by batch - due to our high turnover of the most popular models - so the images and desciptions fit that model, though there may be slight variations in stock grain/colour and metal condition - please bare in mind that some of the de-ac guns are almost 100 years old!

If you do not see the deactivated gun that you want, please contact us as we have lots of individual deactivated weapons that for time constraints, we do not list.
