New Jersey I average 2-3 trips per year, all in the summer, Maryland about the same and West Virginia maybe once a year. Delaware is the only one I go to on a more regular basis and that's because A) no sales tax and B) a Cabelas is there. The only two that I've been in that I've bought firearms related materials is Maryland and Delaware and neither has any issues selling long guns to out of state individuals. I don't conceal carry so I don't have to worry about crossing state lines. About 30 states have reciprocating carry laws meaning they honor Pennsylvania's carry laws. New York and New Jersey are two that don't, possibly Maryland also, not sure. They are trying to get this passed Federally so no state can prevent someone else from carrying if they have a license.

    My assumption would be that they would still automatically shift to Sec 5 because it's still effectively and legally the same firearm, reciver, barrel etc.

    Unlike the SP L1A1's, Garands etc, that are built from kits with new unported barrels.
    That would also be my understanding of the law as well.

    Once Sect 5, always Sect 5 as the saying goes.

    I suppose its such a different system for us here in the UK with effectively one single legal system covering Britainicon, with some local legislation for Scotland and Northern Ireland. Wales also has its own Parliament, but as far as I am aware follow English law in virtually everything.

    There are however some differences, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands for instance, they set their own laws (much to governmental annoyance) and you can still possess Semi Automatic firearms and handguns there.

    Also, in Northern Island you can still hold handguns, this caveat was made in the province due to the amount of people who had to hold firearms for personal defence during the troubles, its still in force and probably will be for a good while yet.

    Long may their independent spirit and freedoms of these areas flourish too ....

    John,

    As the rifle is still Section one until they change the spec then can't see an issue with them turning them in to SP, but when you look at it regarding price I would think it would be best to get paid out on them and buy a AK type of SP.

    I wonder if Southern Gun is offering any service for the lever release 9mm's ? Its a shame regarding them as they are fun to shoot, the Mars rifle probably would of gotten away with its system had it not been for Pete Moores video on You tube.........

    We have, in most of Australiaicon, "appearance laws".

    A bit like putting a "Spirit of Ecstasy" on a clapped out Austin Princess. By "their" laws, you now own a Rolls Royce.



    Bolt-action "tube rifles" are on the forthcoming hit list.
