    Firearms Advice please!

    i recently purchased a new rifle, on the day of the purchase i was told by the gunshop owner that if i was not happy with the rifle i could return it for a another, no problems there. the gunshop advised that i would require a 3 month permit for the exchange.

    ive contacted my firearms officer who has advised me that i will have to hand back the rifle to the gunshop and then write in for a 1 for 1 variation in order to exchange for the new rifle, the gunshop has advised me that this is incorrect as all i require is a 3 month permit to enable me to carry out the exchange, can anyone shed some light on this.

    local gunshop here does a 7day trial on s/h guns... you have 7 days to decide if you like it or not, then either return the gun or notify FLD of purchse.

    Never heard of a 3month permit

    apparently the 3 month permit is issued by the firearms officer to enable you to exhange the rifle.

    iv enever heard of a 3 month ticket

    if you buy a firearm or section 1 shotgun you need to inform the police with in 7 dyas if you want to change it after the initial purchase you will need a nother variation


    you can not chop and change rifles etc with out variations for evry transaction unless you have a imilar spare slot on your ticket in which case you can but you still need to advice the polizia

    Just spoke to basc the permit the gunshop is refering to is called a Section 7 but this is to the discretion of the firearms officer, basc can push for this if the firearms / shotgun certificate has expired but in this instance it is up to the individual.
