Well from talking to the firearms officer yesterday he said this renewal will be a yearly thing,why I have no idea.Maybe it's something that's at the Supers discretion and feels it better to have it this way.I'll update on this when I know more.

OK then as an update to this,I have the letter in front of me which arrived this morning.Attached to the letter is two basic printed forms which have to be filled out with your name,address,D.O.B and the firearm detail,one form to each gun.The letter states that it is indeed an application for renewal of authorization for each gun.This letter only covers the first two deactivated weapons I got and not the latter two so presuming there working from dates of when the authorizations were issued then I expect to get a further letter in the near future for the other deacts.Lastly there is a deadline given on the letter stating when the current authorization runs out and that the application has to be handed back before this date passes.Whether or not not this is something my local Super is doing or whether it's nationwide I don't know.

What is the market like for deactivated WW2 German items here in Ireland? I am thinking of thinning out my collection and I would like to avoid having to drive to the UK to get them to a dealer that won't try to rip me off.

Iv no idea about any places in Ireland that sell them but i had my meeting with the super today and was refused due to if it was ever stolen and used to say hold up a cash van they would just hand over the money not known it was deactivated.

Sorry to hear that. Sometimes there is a way of placating the Super if you are a serious collector and show him/her that you take security serious. I know of people who only got permission for deacts after they put similar security arrangements in place as if they have active firearms on the premises, i.e. house alarm and gun safe for all deacts.

Aw i tried my best with it and it was still not good enough i was talking to him for nearly 45min i explained that i was willing to invest in gun safes and i have an alarm on the house.
He started with why i was interested in collecting militaria and i explained that i had an interest in it from a young age as a lot of my family were in it and that i like to own a part of history then i was asked to tell all my knowledge of ww1 and what weapons they used then it went onto ww2 and what weapons each side used.
He also asked me if i had gone to the IMWM and i said i had and he asked what it was like as he has an interest in militaria himself but has not got a chance to visit it then he came to a decision that because they have expensive insurance and top of the line security that he has to refuse me because of the type of firearm it is and that if any one got there hands on it people would think its real as its very intimidating looking it was a PPS43 that i was looking at getting as my first but it looks like it will never be
He apologised to me for not been able to grant me permission as he believes i have a great interest in the military and that i should keep my interest going that there are other ways of doing it besides collecting firearms but to be honest it was a right kick been turned down

I'm looking for a deactivated Lee Enfield No4 rifle .303 cal. I want it for old times sake. I'm in my 70s and used one (my favourite rifle) many years ago.
