Thread: 1 for 1 for a moderator

    1 for 1 for a moderator

    I have had conflicting advice on this...

    Do you need to get a 1 for 1 variation to get a new moderator (ie. sell existing one and replace with a new one)?

    In short YES.

    Same as if you change your rifle.

    I thought so.

    Weeps... the thought of going back through another 6 weeks waiting for the paperwork fills me with dread.

    If the replacement is the same as the existing one which means the wording on your FC would be the same for the new one as the old one, I am sure common sense would prevail.
    However, as we all know, the law does not follow 'common sense rules' so as as far as the law is concerned, as has been stated above, the transaction should be treated the same as a 1 for 1 firearm.

    Common sense! are you for real!

    Just kidding I have said it before If you have been granted a calibre, then why can you not sell one and then buy the same caribre to replace it. It would be simpler for the Firearm dept as all you would need to do is inform them that you have sold the old one to xyz and now you have bought a new one for abc. unfortunatly thats too simple.

    fantastic reply sir.

    but as edd said, common sense, I would like mods to be removed from ticket as i think its a daft law in the first place, but that is never going to happen.

    There was a time not so long ago when this was possible.
    I made use of the variation worded as follows several times.
    'Authorised to acquire a xyz calibre rifle on disposal of xyz calibre rifle serial number xyzabc'
    This enabled me to take my rifle into a dealer, have a look around and do a part ex there and then.
    All I did then was notify the relevent Police Firearms department of the transaction.

    I know that some time ago the suggestion for removing mods from FAC's was mooted by several licensing departments but was quashed I think by ACPO. Oh well, one day common sense will prevail (maybe).

    How could anyone tell if a NVN/NVN moderator is the original one on your ticket?
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    Because quite often it states the make as in Wildcat/A-Tec etc etc followed by NVM but as I said before if it is the same make and calibre common sense tells me a swop 1-4-1 would be the way to go.
