No. You can obtain a live rifle on a section 1 FAC and use it with blanks. There is no such thing as a blank firing rifle.

a k98 doesn't need to be blank adapted since it is a bolt action weapon. You have to cycle a bolt action manually it doesn't use gas or blowback action to cycle it

How would you go about doing this? (the section 1 FAC) and would you have to buy a live fire rifle or can deactivated ones be re=activated? Or is the deactivation permanent???

Deactivation is a permanent process, and any attempt to reactivate a a deac would be highly illegal. You will need an FAC before buying a rifle, but as a member of a bona fide reenactment group this should not be a major hurdle.

I have read (on here I believe) about someone making blank firing K98 replicas, but if they are still in production I have no idea.

Hope this helps.

But how do you obtain an FAC?

Ask at your local Police station, they might not want to help but they should.
You will need to show good cause for you to have one and there are many steps upon which to trip. You will need to install a gunsafe, have house visits, provide references. get the form from the police and do some reading.

Yes you can obtain blank firing K98 rifles without the need of obtaining a FAC!!

there was an 8mm one on milweb the other day, i was going to put the link up but it must have sold. if your wanting a rifle your much better going and getting a FAC and getting a real one.

Those in the know think it got pulled from Milweb because it was naughty.
My post was more along the lines of 'back up what you have just said with some details' rather than 'I want one'.

Ah right I was wondering about the legality of it, although I don't see the point in them just get a proper one

And I meant the original poster should go FAC rather than looking for a blank rifle

The OP was almost 5 years ago.
The thread had been dead for 3 years when our jlmod posted today.

Ah I hadn't realised.

Quite strange to resurrect it
