    thats a hard one
    i have an ex german deac luger here in the uk
    and it had a hole driled in the bottom of the barrel
    it was deactivated again to uk spec
    ie they pluged up the hole but they put a toungsten steel rod in the barrel then it was certified for the uk
    all of europe seem to have diferent methods
    but i sold a uk old spec 1919a4 to a guy in spain and the spanish authoritys seemed fine with the uk standards ???
    try speeking to the german embasy see what they have to say

    dont write
    email or better still phone
    you will get a much faster answer
    but remember for oficials ,,they find it to easy to say no
    before they will take time or put efort into finding out
    so keep on at them for a true and concise answer
    they are very good at saying no hoping you will go away
    so keep on

    It is possible and completely legal to do so as Germany is a member of the International Proof Commisson (CIP). Which in short means that they recognise and accept the proof marks on both live and deactivated weapons from other countries that are members of CIP, including the UK. The best place to get advice is to contact the home office via their website as theres where I got my information regarding CIP. As for shipping a deact out of the UK, I have no idea how to go about this as I have never done so, best contact customs about that one. Be warned though, the home office will more than likely give you a "non answer" which gives you a lot of information, but not a simple answer to what is a simple question.

    Thanks

    Contact DHL and see what they have to say. I know that when it comes to shipping Any sort of weapons to Europe-even knives and daggers, DHL is about the only company that will handle them, so they should be able to tell you exactly what you need to know.

    i now start to think im better of selling it in the uk for pick up only or keeping it, as this sounds way to much stress to ship the thing and search for an extra expensive way of shipping
    what a mess this all is
