Theoben like many manufacturers make lots of rifles under these limits for which you do not need a cert though convictions/inprisonment may make it an offence for a person to hold such a weapon even if it is under the legal limit.
Rifles that are made to exceed these limits will be sold as FAC equipment.
However, sub 12 gear can go "hot" for a variety of reasons and it is the END USERS LIABILITY to ensure that is in not over the limits with any type or weight of pellet that it may be tested with.
Damn this accursed slydexier, deslixia, slesdex-e-her. Well damn it anyway
