Are you moving over, or just coming for a visit?Hello, is there a correct way to make an AR-10 legal in England? I understand it needs to be single shot, like straight pull bolt. Remove gas tube, block gas port? I am going there next year.
Thanks for the forum info, I am visitor now, planning to move over, next two years. Already have firearms cert. as I have one rifle there. A good sponsor made it easy.Are you moving over, or just coming for a visit?
It would need to be permanently modified so that it is straight pull, so that you would have to pull the charging handle back between shots to eject the spent case and load a new cartridge.
If you are importing the gun because you are moving, making it UK legal may be the least of your worries. I would check for gun clubs in the area you intend to move to. If you are just visiting, that's a different story. I'm not sure what needs to happen there.
Reason for that: In order to own a gun, you need to have a Firearms Certificate issued by the police authority in the region where you will be living. In order to own a gun, you need to have a valid reason and a valid place to shoot it. If you are target shooting, that normally means you need to belong to a club. If hunting, you need to have signed permission of the landowner on file with the police, and they will have examined the land and will tell you what guns you can use to hunt that land.
I checked into bringing some of dad's guns over a number of years ago, and as desirable as it was to have those guns here, the paperwork and cost of importing them far outweighed getting my own guns over here. My brother now has custody of dad's guns.
There is a closed facebook group, Firearms-UK that has a number of people who know more about this than I do. There are also some UK gun forums.
When are you making it American now that you live in America??
