Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The first is a Walther-made, Colt branded 1911 in .22LR

    Second is a reissue of a classic Smith and Wesson revolver: the Model 586 in .357 Magnum.

    You should stick these in the Rifles hot or not thread. Same forum. It's really the gun porn thread
  3. Stop winding us Limeys up.
  4. But...that's the whole point. It's part of my master political strategy to get the Brits to change their guns laws. It's for your own good.

    Not here, I had a nice enough 5 shot 357 Taurus in my hands a week ago, a bit loud but great and section 1 for humane despatch of deer!

    Stalking is such great fun!
  6. Used to own a 686 (the stainless steel version of the 586). Great piece of engineering. I wonder what happened to all those guns that were handed in.

    You could specify a museum for it to go to if you wanted, I had considered that until section 7 saved the day. There is a collection of 1970's revolvers under section 7 and they are perfectly legal, it included rarity as well as age and now we all know they are all pretty rare here unless you are lucky enough!

    I know a chap who very clinically cut his pistols into bits and reassembled them so that they would fall apart in your hands when you handled them to show clear etc. His handing in day at Steelhouse lane was a picture I'd love to have seen. I recall he did get his VZ Skorpion into a museum but another from the same club wanted the cash for his 6" barrelled wobly MkV which upset a few bods as it was melted down.
    When I had to hand in my child mass murdering Vostock tgt pistol (cheers Blair I made a profit you ******) I handed in a bent barrel, cut up slide and stripped frame very buggered up. The parts all went to a collector in Norway!
  9. How many shot? law says 2 shot max?
  10. Can you keep sect 7 at home?

  11. I had one as well , very nice piece of kit.
  12. I handed mine in and took the money. I re-invested it in a 7.62 and a couple of 303's. Society is a safer place now!

    THB the payout amounts were pretty generous. But then they could be as it was our money! All mine went back into the gun trade.

    You can keep one of the section 7 classes at home, I cant recall if its 3 or 1. That revolver had 3 cylinders sealed with resin (which could be cleaned out) but its not actually a requirement under the act, several self loaders have been granted for despatch!

    Selling my section 7 pistols about 3 years on made me a lot more than the compo would have. Paid for some nice stalking rifles and glass.

    I got £350 back on a tweeked Berretta 92SBF that I paid £950 on 2 years before (it was heading to the US), and £150 for a Browning Hi-power that I'd paid £450 for about 6 years earlier (it was cut in half).
