A fellow fac license holder and I have agreed to swap moderators.
Same calibre. One is declared on ticket as a t8 moderator, the other as Nvn (no visible number)
In order to swap we must lodge our respective moderators with a rfd, apply for a 1 for 1 variation, then transfer the moderator from said rfd to fill the slot. Each step with the rfd will cost £15 so some £60 simply to swap.
Ofcourse we could simply apply for another slot each, but again close to £60.
Is this the only way to stay within regulations?
Separately but still on moderators
I have two moderators which are identical.
One is on my ticket as t8 7.62 moderator, the other .243, Nvn
They are completely interchangeable but am I committing an offence if I inadvertently use the 7.62 mod on the 243 and vice verse?
This then set my cell into overdrive!
If I have a sako quad with a .22 moderator and a .17hmr barrel as well as the .22, but use the .22mod on each barrel even though I have a slot for a 17hmr mod I would also be committing an offence?
I think moderators should come off the HO remit to register just as rifle stocks, trigger assemblies etc are not recorded.
