The law was supposed to be passed sometime last year, and would have made it illegal to purchase and own DEMILITERIZED guns, because the UK government thought that a criminal in the UK would spend 5-800 euros on one of these non firing guns, and someone be able to make it into a fully firing machinegun.

    It's not our fault/problem in the UK if some countries in continental Europe, especially eastern Europe, have lax gun laws. By UK definition a deactivated firearm that is still capable of discharging any ammunition, even blank ammunition, is not a deactivated firearm.

    The E.U. should be focusing on E.U. countries that have relaxed laws and attitudes on firearms and on securing it's borders.

    The E.U.'s interference in the UK's already high standard of deactivation just made life difficult for everyone concerned, dealers and collectors alike.

    The USAicon never ratified the UN Small Arms Treaty when it was signed by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State during the Obummer administration. Trump's UN ambassador and former Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, removed the USA from the treaty. Most realize that our firearms import/export laws are some of the most stringent in the world anyhow.

    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...
