Not sure to be honest. I had a friend who bought 3 A1 mags from a guy who lived around RAF Waddington. 2 days later SIB from Cranwell came a knocking and wanted the mags back..they had been nicked by a SAC.
TMH and other bits that size dont just go walkies out of the armoury surely, things like gas parts are easy to say you lost etc. Perhaps taken by a H&K employe or bought by them.
There's a line in one of the Firearms Acts which goes along the lines of "the possession of parts of a firearm, irrespective of their condition, without a licence is an offence.
These items look like they have been removed from a scrap-bin somewhere.
The Items shown are the body (though the barrel extension has been chopped through) and the TMH, the TMH is the master component, ie the one you CANNOT get. This TMH has had the back chopped off and a new piece welded on, note the lack of rear body locking pin hole on the TMH. What is worrying is that with this (albeit damaged) TMH and acces to the Armr's Shop keys you could build a fuly functioning SA80. Would sir like an A1 or a A2 model?
They look real enough to me however why anyone would want to buy that is beyond me! In the armouries I worked in,stuff like Breech Blocks,Barrels,Mags & stuff were controlled items.Firing pins & gas parts were'nt as we replaced so many on a daily basis.But worn & broken parts they were recorded & destroyed.
Can someone report him? If he is serving then this is very bad, dosn't this come under "part there of" bit of a deleration? If he isn't serving then he needs a visit from plod, to see what else he may have.
On another note, can someone charge him for having a rusty gat! lol
I,ve read somewhere that when the Enfield factory closed there was skip loads of crap like that removed & sent to the dump. With these parts having no numbers stamped they could of come from there. If there was a number stamped & its been removed then someones in for a nicking. I,ve seen loads of SA80 bits & bobs being sold on ebay it amazes me what people will buy.
Well nobody's showing interest at the moment with 21 hours to go. In all honesty, could these parts be used in a functioning rifle? It's really hard to tell from the photos but it looks totally fcuked to me. If anyone did want these parts they're definately not worth Â£250!
Its not the fact that he is selling broken 80 parts, but its "what else might he sell" that I have a problem with, If someone is stupid enough to pay 250 for this ebay post, what next, ammo? his mate weapon,a SUSAT? If he is serving he needs to be charged? If he is a civvie, he needs a quick chat with the Police.
