Guns chambered in cartridges removed from the obsolete list by the Antique Firearms Regulations (2021) statutory instrument will no longer benefit from exemption as an antique under section 58(2) of the Firearms Act (1968) as of 22/03/2021. However, there is a transition period of 6 months to allow owners to apply for a certificate, deactivate or dispose of any firearms affected. During this period, you can sell the gun to an individual collector or museum. However, a firearms dealer may not acquire such guns during this period without section 5 authority.

If the owner of a firearm that no longer falls within the definition of 'antique firearm' chooses not to licence it, they will need to otherwise dispose of it before the transition period ends at 23:59 on 21 September 2021.  Disposal could include selling, exporting or deactivating the firearm, donating it to a museum or surrendering it to the police.  To enable this, owners will be able to freely sell or transfer the firearm to another collector or to a museum without requiring a firearm certificate, section 5 authority or a museum firearms licence.  Owners can also sell or transfer the firearm to a dealer, but only one who is registered with the police and who has a section 5 authority.  In all cases, the new owner must then apply to the police for a firearm certificate or museum licence in respect of the firearm before the transition period ends at 23:59 on 21 September 2021.

Items for sale that have recently been removed from the obsolete calibres list as mentioned above, are on sale from private collectors.
