  European Firearms Pass
Posted by: David_Erskine - 22-12-2018, 04:58 PM - Forum: Events - Replies (1)

Now when I mention "Brexit" please don"t all run for cover, but come March 2019 whether we have a agreed exit or a cliff edge departure, one thing is certain the EFP (European Firearms pass) will become a thing of the past and like many things regarding Brexit, does anyone have any idea what will replace it or have knowledge that anyone within the shooting fraternity have raised this matter with the Government ( or should I say the PM as it appears they are the only one privi to what their plan is) .......
So after 585 pages of a carefully constructed exit plan who is in charge of Appendix A, the replacement for the EFP...... Rolleyes

Answers may also be directed at whoever the current Brexit Secretary is today.!!!!

I'm looking for some friendly advice - I have been shooting for 30 years and yet somehow have not managed to try black powder and muzzle loading yet... Fultons of Bisley (where most of my salary gets spent) pointed me to and I can see there is a St Albans branch,but there are no contact details and I'd be grateful if anyone could share those.

Also, is there any recommended reading on the subject?  I am trying not to dash out and get a variation and buy the Uberti 1851 Navy without doing the due diligence...

Thanks in advance!

Just in case anyone has one hidden away, I am looking for two cylinders for the M1868 Tranter .450 revolver -- - one 6-shot and one 5-shot (for the "pocket model")
I acquired two revolvers from a deceased estate of a well-known MLAGB Member. He had them "off ticket" because he had replaced the cartridge cylinders with "home made" percussion ones, adding a peg on the LH side of the action for a First Model type rammer and claiming that they were "dual system" where the cartridge cylinder was missing.  They were, of course, still "the major parts of a Section 5(1)(aba) short firearm" and he could well have had his collar felt.
Amongst the Os & Ss were the two well-made rammers but NOT the original .450 cylinders.
I do have Home  Office Authority for many classes of Section 5 so am able to take in any items "..... found in deceased persons effects" (like the Home Guard cache last year which was in the back of a Surrey garage -- 4 .303s, two other BA rifles, an M1 carbine, 4 .455 revolvers, 3 .45 Colt 1911s and a M1928 Thompson -- plus ammo!)

  Starting to shoot pistol.
Posted by: Diz9000 - 28-11-2018, 11:31 PM - Forum: Pistol - Replies (5)

Hi one and all.

Well after a year of shooting my m/l rifle (.54 cal Hawken) and thoroughly enjoying it. Having tried a few friends pistol , have decided to take the plunge and get my own. The variation went in and I have been looking for my first purchase. ?
I have kind of made my mind up to go for .36 cal, preferably single shot (not totally ruled out revolvers but almost ) , percussion.
Have short listed the Pedersoli Mortimer, Pedersoli Le Page and the Jim Greathead underhammer.
Typically, now that I am able to buy (fingers crossed), the availability is starting to dry up , online anyway (or so it seems ?)
If anyone has or knows of any of these for sale ,at a reasonable price. definitely can’t afford new prices, being disabled on a pension kind of limits my funds (as well as hiding it from my wife lol )

  Pedersoli Kuchenreuter Pistol For Sale.
Posted by: Blind_Pugh - 21-10-2018, 07:41 PM - Forum: Sales & Wants - Replies (5)

Good Evening.  I am selling my Mint Pedersoli Kuchenreuter Pistol as I find I am using it less and less and, as we know this won't satisfy my requirement to use it 'regularly'.
It's a beautiful gun, .40" calibre with a 10" PMG barrel.  I have fitted a replacement Copper Berylium Nipple and the gun performs very well with a moderate load of Swiss 2 powder behind a .395" ball over a 010" lubed patch.
I have tried without success to post pictures of the pistol (File too large) so if you are interested please PM me and I will e-mail you a set.  Priced to sell at £400.  I would prefer a face-to-face transaction but I can post it to your RFD at cost.
