Given that the Police seem incapable of giving a factual description of anything firearms-related without lapsing into shrieky feminised exaggeration and hyperbole (see .22" SL rifle breathlessly trumpeted as "AK47 assault rifle" a couple of days ago...), I guess we are left to make our own deductions from the charge sheet:
"Appearing at York Crown Court, Crossland admitted six charges of possessing prohibited firearms, two charges of possessing firearms without the relevant certificate, two counts of possessing ammunition without the relevant certificate, and one count of possessing a shotgun without the relevant certificate. "
"Prohibited firearms" could mean anything from a machinegun to, as seems likely in this case, blank firing guns.
"Two charges of .. firearms without relevant certificate" could be anything Sect 1 including air rifles or air soft guns over the energy limit.
"two counts of possessing ammunition without..etc" could be just two rounds of anything - maybe shotgun carts, perhaps even Brocock rounds. Since its only two counts, then I'm guessing that the other 23,998 rounds of ammunition were indeed non-licensable air gun pellets, air soft beads or similar.
Agree, but good glass on a crap rifle trumps crap glass on a good rifle.
I have a good pile of Leupold, S&B, Zeiss and Swarovski scopes, all low mag variables for woodland or fixed mag for stalking with the off tactical sniping one!
I trawl guns shops for trade ins, second hand and have been known to part ex scopes for rifles. Putting in the legwork pays off!
