    Hey folks,

    Has anyone any experience with licencing a firearm with multiple serial numbers, and importing same?

    As in, a receiver has a number, barrel another, bolt another, all different.

    If I get a licence for one of those numbers then does that licence cover all the other parts of the firearm for import & licencing purposes even if they have different serials?

    Restricted, if that makes a difference.

    Thanks in advance :D

    Never forget, the end goal is zero firearms of any type.

    Just give them the Receiver number, lets not confuse anyone. Thats the most important thing,
    The receiver number is what goes on your licence, not any other numbers.

    I'm fairly sure it's just the one on the receiver, you'd only put down the serial number of the individual parts would be if your importing them separately. Even then you'd probably have to get them stamped with the same number.

    It comes from the New EU firearms directive I believe, the receiver number is the one that goes on your license.
    If you where importing from another EU country the other serial numbers are not required on the import application.
    If you are importing from a non EU country all the serial numbered parts have to be listed on the import application form.
    This is for an individual import I haven't looked at the form for RFD import. And remember England, Scotland and Wales are all non EU now.

    Cheers Wadi, it is going to be an individual import from the EU so no worries there.
