Can anyone guide me to the legality of owning a Pinfire pistol replica please? The one I have seen is an exact copy of a 1845 French double barrel drop down trigger pinfire pistol. sorry no pictures. the gun is so exact a copy it could be taken for real except it's not steel and it's parts have been cast and not machined. The gun works as a real one would and the hammer springs are good. Bore is about .410 size and the bores are not polished. Any advice please.
