They require no licence, as long as certain conditions are upheld. A full list of these Section 58 Obsolete Calibres can be found below: Antique Firearms This is the guidance which the Home Office has given to the police about antique firearms: Section 58 2 of the Firearms Act exempts from the provisions of the Act — including certificate controls under Sections 1 and 2 and prohibition under section 5- antique firearms which are sold, transferred, purchased, acquired or possessed as curiosities or ornaments. In issuing guidance on this matter, the Home Office has always taken the view that this term should be taken to cover those firearms of a vintage and design such that their free possession does not pose a realistic danger to public safety. No licence needed for old muzzle loaders. Guidance was issued by the Home Office in paragraph 2. Following advice from the Firearms Consultative Committee FCC , the Government issued further guidance in a circular letter to chief officers on 19 November In their Annual Report, the FCC suggested that a number of calibers have lapsed into obsolescence and might properly be added to the list.

You know what you can do with that Pheasant… It is nearing the end of the season and I guess we are all a bit tired with our Labrador being no exception. Last drive yesterday his handler sent him off to find birds, he ambled a few paces then came back and sat down and that was as far as he was concerned the end of the day as far as to picking Pheasants. Apparently he spent the last few minutes walking obediently at his side and no amount of encouragement would get him to go out.
Interestingly he did this to me a couple of weekends ago, I was convinced I had dropped a Partridge, he however decided I had not and so did the additional pair of dogs with us, sometimes dogs just seem to know better. I have shot Pigeons before and he has remained unconvinced, equally I have missed shots before and he has headed out and retrieved the bird I was sure I had missed.
As I said, it has been a busy season for all of us, he has been out on numerous occasions and I have lost count of how many shotguns have come in requiring immediate repairs or servicing.

There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks. You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.

Breda 12G Semi-Auto shotgun. Old, tired and well-worn but still working and as I have plenty of spares may well get a little refurb at some time.
I was opposed to comparison reports until it was recently pointed out to me that we buy electronics that way. These are two high-end spring-piston airguns that are similar in price, features and quality. When a buyer looks at these guns, he should not be distracted by other spring guns or even by other powerplants. He wants a good, solid underlever spring-piston air rifle, and these 2 are at the top of the list. New buyers may be confused by these 2 rifles that appear so similar.
Here are some comparative specs: It comes from the box with nearly zero vibration in the shot cycle and only a little recoil.

OKAY Industries helped co-develop the original round M16 magazine with the U.S. Army in Since then, OKAY has been a preferred supplier to the U.S. Government in times of international conflict, including Iraq, Afghanistan and flashpoints around the world.
As we discussed before, towards the end of WW2 British engineers were deeply engaged in the development of bullpup rifles, either manually-operated, semi-automatic or fully-automatic. It was clear how the British Army was indeed in need for a more modern rifle that would replace its obsolete Lee-Enfield SMLE bolt-action service rifles. British engineers thus started to develop a new cartridge, a cleverly designed intermediate round that would be effective up to yards roughly metres in an infantry rifle and up to yards about metres in an universal machine gun, while at the same time remaining noticeably lighter and generating less recoil than any of the existing service rifle rounds used by the Allied forces of World War II.
Submitted by Maxim Popenker personal archives British designer Stefan Janson demonstrates the 7mm EM-2 “Mamba” bullpup rifle With the new 7x43mm round at hand, the British Army literally jump-started the development of a new rifle. The EM-2, designed by Stefan Janson’s team, was produced through the use of more traditional technologies and featured a flapper-locking, gas-operated action similar to that used on the unsuccessful German G.
However, with the changes in the British government this decision was reversed in sake of maintaining caliber compatibility with the U. For the sake of our treatise, it’s worth taking note that some early prototypes of the FN FAL rifle were chambered for the British 7x43mm intermediate cartridge, and one of those was a bullpup design. The 7mm bullpup FAL rifles were widely tested worldwide in the early s, but appealed no customer; as a result, production versions of this highly successful rifle were all confined to the traditional layout.
Submitted by Maxim Popenker personal archives The 7,62x39mm Korovin prototype assault rifle, developed in the Soviet Union around Submitted by Maxim Popenker personal archives Another Soviet 7,62x39mm caliber prototype bullpup rifle: Soviet designers experimented with bullpup-configured antitank rifles before WW2, but none of these was ever adopted. However, during the early stages of development of a intermediate caliber for small arms the 7.
It was a somewhat roughly looking design, with an annular gas piston and a rotary bolt locking. The reasons for its rejection aren’t known, but about one or two years later a new bul-pup rifle design was submitted to the next stage of trials for the adoption of a new Soviet service weapon system — this time, designed by the talented but somewhat unlucky designer Gennady Aleksandrovich Korobov, another TOZ employee.
