Now where does the law stand with these? Are we allowed to buy them from the states?

I cant see why they would not be allowed after all, theyre nothing to do with the weapon, just like a bayonet.

Think they are Section 5 unless deactivated, Jon. Read this thread:

Cheers Bryn, will ask over on the dark side.

Does seem abit stupid, but then again in the wrong hands could be more dangerous then a live weapon.

A metal tube with a hole in the middle? Not exactly the most dangerous thing in the world... but there again, a bazooka is just a metal tube and a battery...!

I've never seen a deactivated one of these for sale by the way. Perhaps it is worth you contacting the Birmingham proof house Jon and asking them if they've got a standard for deactivating them?

Cheers,
Glen.

Another item that falls within this area is the M1 Sniper Flash Hider..

Is it not?

I was under the impression that all 'Flash hiders' are restricted if not 'fixed' to a deactivated weapon...

Link to, or notes on would be good...

No I don't have one, an M1 Sniper....

Just want to add to the collective for info etc....

I was told by someone in the know many years back that these are indeed section 5, why you may ask well you put a Grenade on the end and fire it :D if it was for firing safety lines for rescue etc, then that would be a different story. Oh don't you just love U.K. laws. :roll:

Chap in the states has made a limited run a few years ago, though not pressure bearing "rated" which was the key factor when he sold them.
