    Steve, just read your post... 303's, nah Big Shells
    Hey Simon, Biggest one i have here is an 8-inch US M106 High Explosive Howitzer shell weighing 210lbs! Its been filled with concrete to prevent it from being reactivated, looks the dogs balls mate too-luv it! Regards, Tim.

    What procedure do you use to deactivate the firearm?

    It varies depending on what type of firearm is to be deactivated, if you do a search on google you'll find out everything you need to know.

    Thanks

    Well, dont exactly know as a relic item is different to that of a clean fresh firearm which can be easily stripped and firing pin removed and ground right down and barrell drilled and pins and weld inserted etc which is what is often done.
    Whether a relic requires deactivation is dependent upon its 'found condition' much like the thousands of Lee Enfields littering the ploughed fields of France. If barrells are swollen and blocked etc and moving parts solidly locked without any hope of moving then deactivation is not necessary. Either way if youre ever uncertain about these things always check with your local gunsmith or registered firearms dealer as they can often undertake this sort of work and will also tell you in much greater detail how it is all done. The law now requires that all machineguns have bolts and triggers welded and only moving parts allowed are magazines, thats the current spec on deacs. Hope this helps. Regards, Tim.

    Not all machine guns are welded solid. Only asault type weapons and SMGs are welded solid (Post 1995). LMGs can still be dry cycled and assault type weapons with Bipods are also fine. Thats why Brens, Vickers MGs, AR15s with bipods, L2A1s etc can still be dry fired.
