This thread is for lads who are affected by the post-2015 center fire semi-auto rifle ban that will come into force on the 1st of November this year.
Post the make and models and any information on how to convert the rifle to straight pull or whatever. We are not advocating anyone to do anything but if lads are carrying out their own work then they should do their own research on this topic.
Reason: Added Simon comment to OP
A lot will have to be taken on trust by both AGS and gunowners here on this issue. After all, if AGS is happy that we plug our .22 pistol mags or cylinders to 5 rounds, and "render incapable" our semi-auto and pump-action shotguns to an unrestricted 3-shot capacity. by putting in a metal or wooden dowel..Well, then they will have to accept that whatever conversion you did by your own hand or a gunsmith is good enough too. Them saying it "might be reconverted if you have the parts" is a supposition of you intending to comitt a crime,and they have been slapped down numerous times on this in both district and high courts on firearms issues.
EG we all have a car that is capable of breaking every speed limit in Ireland. Yet AGS and RSA do not insist on us fitting speed governors to keep the top speed of Irish cars at 120kph in case any of us might go over this max speed.If you do well then you face censure under the law for speeding.The same should apply in this situation too. if you said it was converted and you were caught blazing away someplace in semi-auto that you reconverted.Well accept the consequences of your actions.
Also,do not pay more than 100 euros for this conversion. Any GS that can't run a brazing or solder torch or MIG/ TIG welder and immobilises this system within 10 minutes and writes a note to say they have wrecked your semi-auto function or test fires your gun is taking the piss.
Exporting from the US might be more problematic than importing to Ireland. The import cert is another Free document issued by the DOJ just to satisfy the rest of the world not understanding our situation that our license was good enough for an import cert. If you are exporting this as a single component from the USA, it's costly and problematic as it must be exported by a Federal Firearms dealer with a US state dept clearance to do so. Then add another 200$ for the paperwork fee for this export cert. However, this is a once payment, that covers[or did] multiple items in one shipment.IOW you could import 200 Kali keys for that one $200 payment. The quickest way to get these would be for say a German gun dealer to order these for you as Germany has favoured status for trading with firearms with the US, and get them shipped there and then sent over to Ireland with EU paperwork.TonySmith wrote: ↑Thu Aug 10, 2023 8:13 pm Kali Key will send to Ireland BUT you must secure both export (from USA) and import (to EU/Ire) documents, not an easy task in the timeframe, but if you leave the firearm with RFD and convert when/if the key arrives, then this might be doable, but up to this time your FAC was document enough to import from outside the EU, will that still be the case as your FAC will stand revoked after 1st Nov?
