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. i know, strictly speaking shouldn't be in shooting as they no longer shoot.

    who do we know that could do a good de-ac'd folding stock AK variant compete with correct paperwork?

    any suggestions?

    cheers, Taff
  2. Try World-Wide Arms.

    You get the cert when you buy it, I'm reasonably sure its illegal to sell without one!
  5. i don't know about illegal to sell.

    More like it can't be proved to be a deac (Section 8 '88 Act) without the proof marks and cert. From memory the proof houses will issue duplicate certs on production of the firearm (for a fee).

    Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988
  6. Try d and b militaria. Always a fair price, the folding stock variants most likely going to be an AKM. If you try and get one that was deac prior to '95 it will still "dry fire" or if you go for a pre '83 deac it will be field stripable.
