    Using my FAC Moderator on a non FAC PCP Air rifle

    Hi, can i use my SAK moderator on my new PCP air rifle, it fits and damps the noise down but am i ok to use it legally ?

    Ask your feo, but I would think that as long as you use the mod in accordance with its conditions on your fac then you will be ok.

    ie, if you have an open ticket and the mod is authorised for whatever species your shooting then it's ok?

    Would the ticket even need to be open?

    Not sure, are the mods on ticket bound by territorial restrictions in the same way rifles are?

    i got told if its on your ticket for c/f then its classed as a firearm,also got told if its in the drawer its for air rifle if its in cabinet its a firearm,however you can walk in any store and walk out with a sak or others for an air rifle no probs if like me you have a couple of sak mods whos to say which ones which?the rules or myths about proof marks on mods are ridiculous,

    I was wondering the same. Then I thought "What do shooters who have the same mod for, say, a .243 and a .308 on a closed ticket have to consider?" I guess the ground clearance for the 12ft lb air rifle wouldn't be a problem.

    Quite true, if it's on ticket it's a firearm (or classed as such).
    however if your conditions allow it to be used for shooting rabbits say, then there shouldn't be a problem if you screw it on your (non-fac) air rifle and shoot rabbits....

    although id check with your feo if in any doubt.

    The property of any moderator that bring it under the control of S1 of the Firearms Act is its being 'an accessory to' a S1 firearm.

    It is as ever an interesting point, but I can't understand how any moderator attached to a sub-12ftlb airgun could be considered in law as 'an accessory to' a S1 firearm. It would have to be capable of being 'an accessory to' more than one rifle at once if that were the case - and clearly a moderator can only be 'an accessory to' one rifle at once because there's only one threaded end.

    I don't know the answer to the question, though.

    So I could legally store my mods in a shoe box under the bed rather than in my safe?
