New to FAC and have a space for a .22 air rifle. Bought one from a dealer but wasn't happy with it and returned it within the week.
Firearms dept phoned to say that I need to do a 1 for 1 variation to be able to acquire a new rifle. (I didn't realise the licence was to ACQUIRE rather than possess a rifle!!)
My questions are:
There is a nice .25 rifle for sale at the moment that I like the look of. If I have to do a variation anyway, will it be any more hassle to change my requirement to a .25 so I can buy this rifle?
Will it still be a 1 for 1 variation?
Will it take longer to process with the small calibre amendment?
Can the rifle be RFD'd in advance of the variation coming through? (presume a risk)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
