    Hmm, thanks for all the input guys. Variations in for ".30 Carbine"

    I will make enquiries tomorrow, having seen the example posted, I really want one!

    I have a small bore and carbine/ pistol caliber range only 2 miles from my house, it would be very nice to do some milsurp shooting close to home, instead of a 40 mile trip to my full bore range.

    A certain UKicon RFD went to prison for this very thing, among other charges.

    The madness of the UK system!

    I would personally prefer an example as original and complete as possible.
    John, that's an interesting development on what I had understood the accepted position in the UK to be. On the basis that a conversion "ex-UK" is acceptable, then presumably a straight pull Bren (operating from a closed bolt maybe?) shouldn't be a problem if it was a manufactured outside the UK and then imported as Section 1?

    It's a nice thought but I wouldn't want to be the one to "test the waters"!

    Absolutely Kev,
    As I understand it, this has been cleared and being sold, so it appears to offer some interesting possiblities.

    The trick appears to revolve around importing a firearm into Britainicon as single shot, Sec1 complient firearm.



    Maybe,that being the case,it's regarded as acceptable, EU rules (of some sort) overriding UK law?
