Antique Cartridge Pistols & Revolvers for sale. 

Antique guns are on sale to COLLECTORS ONLY, to be kept as a curio or ornament, as per Home Office Guidelines Section 58 (2). Persons wishing to buy any antique must not be a prohibited person and can legally purchase and own such items clearly defined under the new Provisions 108-111 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act, and by virtue of Section 21 of The Firearms Act 1968.

What the Law actually says:

On 14 July 2014, the firearms provisions in Section 110 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 came into effect and extended the definition of a `prohibited` person to include those with suspended sentences.  The law has also been changed so that prohibited persons will no longer be able to possess antique firearms.  Taken together, the changes made to the Firearms Act 1968 mean that a person who has served a term of imprisonment, or has received a suspended sentence, of at least three months and less than three years, cannot possess a firearm, including an air weapon or antique firearm or ammunition, for five years from the date of his release if imprisoned or if given a qualifying suspended sentence, from the second day after the date on which the suspended sentence was made.  A person who has served a term of imprisonment of over three years can never possess a firearm, including an air weapon or antique firearm or ammunition. Please note that these provisions also apply to a person sentenced to youth custody, detention in a young offender’s institute or a detention and training order.  A prohibited person may apply to the Crown Court, or in Scotland, in accordance with Act of Sederunt to the sheriff for the prohibition to be lifted.

Possession of an antique firearm and ammunition during a period of prohibition is an offence under section 21(4) of the Firearms Act 1968 and attracts a maximum sentence of five years.
