    Yep it does, i have the same wording on my ticket and I asked the same question, I have seen some peoples tickets which specify 22lr bolt which is strange but im guessing different Forces etc.

    I think my FAC has only ever specified .22 and I have had both bolt & semi-auto actions.atb Tim

    I agree but note they say.22lr which I would take to mean rim-fire and could exclude you from .22 longs and .22 shorts etc but for normal sporting use generally not required and if used in a semi auto would not cycle the action.

    Thanks i guessed so but its nice to be 100% , I have allready two 22lr's listed as bolt action and one listed as self loading hence i wondered if it had to state either or again thanks thats a relief not having to send it back even though credit where its due there and back in a week with cheshire feo , atb gerry

    The variation's fine. You need LR anyway for anything you're likely to do and you've now got the option of buying whatever type of .22 that takes your fancy
