    They are probably legal to sell now, but once the legislation passes in a week or so they will be illegal as they are parts for a prohibited firearm.

    Not sure if the government will pay for parts of prohibited firearms. They probably expect you to hand them in for free.

    If it was legal and will now be banned they will have to pay for it. The devil will be in the detail. Reading the transcripts of the debate for the bill a number of MP's raised the issue of compensation and told the government they needed to announce it quickly and make it fair to stop firearms going underground.

    These are legal and should remain legal. However all the rifles that use it will be illegal, so your best to hand it in for whatever money the police will give you.


    2BMeaning of prohibited magazine
    In this Act, unless the context otherwise requires, prohibited magazine,—
    (a)
    in relation to a shotgun, means a magazine, whether or not detachable, that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges commensurate with that shotgun’s chamber size:
    (b)
    in relation to any other firearm (except a pistol),—
    (i)
    means any detachable magazine—
    (A)
    that is capable of holding 0.22 calibre or less rimfire cartridges and that is capable of holding more than 10 of those cartridges:
    (B)
    that is capable of holding more than 10 cartridges and being used with a semi-automatic or fully automatic firearm:
    (ii)
    means any other magazine, whether or not detachable, that is capable of holding more than 10 cartridges; and
    (c)
    includes any other magazine declared by Order in Council made under section 74A to be a prohibited magazine for the purposes of this Act.

    They won't remain legal because they are "part" of a "prohibited firearm" and parts of prohibited firearms will be banned. It doesn't matter that they only hold 5 rounds.

    That's the problem.....I've been told I CAN sell........I then get told NOT to sell......

    Look, I'm thinking 5 rounders will become the NORM....IF Ecat holders will be allowed to have semi autos in the future........just trying to help out a forum brother here as the price will sky rocket, or they will become as rare as Hens teeth........PM me if your interested.......then it's NOT on a public site.......

    Here's the catch: yes i think you can sell them until the law is signed. After that, they are E-cat since the law will also affect parts for MSSA guns and will require E-cat paperwork and licensing. Personally I doubt if the govt will pay much if anything for parts. the total bill for parts would greatly exceed the cost of the gun buyback and they are already saying the amount paid for the gun will be based on age, avg price, and any other way of lowering the cost.
