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.

So, the rifle still "cocks, strips and dryfires"?

what do they do to deactivate it?

Possibly weld the chamber closed?

they are out of stock anyway.

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.

Why would somebody buy a non functioning firearm for 399 pounds ($635)? Ludicrous.

You can get a FUNCTIONING Mini-14 for less $$$$$$.

Maybe not in England.... :?

What good does a non functioning firearm do anybody? Even in England?

Do they just want a display piece?

What are deactivated guns?

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:

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.
Old spec (weapons deactivated before October 1995)

Submachine guns and semi automatic rifles have working actions. Revolvers do not have blocked cylinders and can accept an inert round.
New spec (weapons deactivated post October 1995)

Submachine guns and semi automatic rifles have welded actions (they will not cock or dry fire) Revolvers have the cylinders blocked and cannot accept an inert round

Pathetic. Leave obama and his ilk in charge for long, and that's exactly what's gonna happen here.

Not if voters "deactivate" him from the White House first.
