i wish they where that flexible here
sadly they know very well what a conversion cylinder is and does
and here that creates a hitch
you have one of these and all black powder pistols you own are now registerable hand guns and restricted as such and this includes by number
so i get one , and then suddenly i have 40 odd more guns that must be registered as hand guns and i way exceed my number permitted
same in the UK but there you can appeal and if you can prove that conversion cylinder wont fit your other pistols they are ok, but any it can fit become registerable and its very hard to get a handgun permit in the UK and why BP is so popular
here we dont get that option ..
