When I was growing up there was one parked on the county fairgrounds. Don't know who "owned" it but I knew had access to it. The right combination of guys and the right amount of beer resulted in a few trips around the grounds. Didn't go far or fast because the tracks could have been let's say "problematic", more so than the drive train. Don't know the status of the gun. Barrel could have been plugged. No ammo anyway :lol: I can tell you I wouldn't want to go to war in one of those things, especially considering the opposition they faced.
Isn't that just typical? A wall-hanger Mini-14 for a lot more than the cost of a good shooter?
If they'd have blocked the gas port like Ruger did on a few guns that were sold to English markets, they'd still have a shooter worth its weight in English pounds.
A deactivated weapon is any firearm that has been converted so that it can no longer discharge any shot, bullet or any other missile. Deactivation is intended to be permanent and cannot be reactivated without specialist tools or skills.
Deactivation work carried out in the UK since 1 July 1989, will generally have been endorsed by a Proof House. The weapon will be proof marked and issued with a deactivation certificate.
There are stringent requirements before a weapon can be proofed as deactivated and such work should be left to a gunsmith. A registered firearms dealer is the best person to speak to about this.
Any weapon - including prohibited one such as a machine gun - can be deactivated and will no longer deemed a firearm under the Firearms Act.
Deactivated weapons may be possessed without a firearm or shotgun certificate and may be displayed in the owner's home without the need for a locked gun cabinet.
