Thread: Free one for one time limit

  1. #1

    Free one for one time limit

    Im having a brain fart and cant find where it says how long you have to apply for a free one for one after selling a rifle.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction??

    Derbyshire will expect the one for one at the same time you inform them of the sale of your current firearm. Ie within 7 days.

    Once upon a time, Northumbria had no such time limits - you could apply at any time

    Now I'm with Police Scotland: previously with Lothian & Borders I was told that they had a 7 day limit...which was news to me, as I have also been unable to find anything in any legal document stipulating a time frame. My take on it is is may have come about as an ACPO type scheme to raise revenue for departments.

    Strathclyde as it was prior to becoming Police Scotland charged 25 if it was not carried out within the seven days.
    As far as the forms go, no mention of the seven day period?
    Note to Part D Renewal or variations only

    A fee is payable in respect of a variation only when the number of

    firearms held by virtue of the certificate is increased.

    Unless otherwise advised by police, you should post or take the

    completed form together with the fee and photographs to the police

    force headquarters. In the case of an application for renewal or

    variation, the current certificate should be included with the

    application. An application for a variation which results from the

    disposal of one weapon and the need for authorisation to acquire a

    new weapon of the same type and calibre (a one-for-one variation)

    should be submitted direct to the police force headquarters.

    I think that the section that you have been looking for is contained within section 10.51 of the 2002 guidance to police document. It probably exists somewhere in the 2013 guidance but so far I have not located it.

    10.51 A variation is always necessary if a certificate holder wishes to change one of the firearms, even if they wish to purchase one identical to the one they are selling (Wilson v Coombe, Queen’s Bench Divisional Court, July 1988). “One for one” variation refers to firearms that are authorised to be acquired at the same time as one is being disposed of. For practical purposes this is normally taken to be within seven days. The use of authorities which can be kept open indefinitely should be discouraged.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
