Deactivated FAC Air Rifle - Advice Wanted
This may sound strange or even a little weird but as anyone bought a deactivated FAC air rifle?
Let me try and explain why I'm asking this question...
A good friend of mine has a very nice looking air rifle, the stock is immaculate and the action is better than anything I've ever seen before, however it's on his ticket, ie FAC. When I showed an interest in it he said he could deactivate it and then take it off ticket, I guess like any other firearm or pistol/gun, then add it to my collection. I believe the stock and barrel would cost more than £300 each therefore I'm very interested in what the options are in taking it off ticket and deactivating it.
I've never heard of anyone buying a deactivated air rifle or anyone taking an air rifle off ticket by deactivating - is this possible? Do you know of anyone who has done this?
Any help/advice would be appreciated.
