    Changing a rifle from A cat to E cat HELP!

    I have several AR platform rifles, but only 1 on E cat, the others have A cat stocks etc. I would like to change one of them over to E, does anybody know what is involved, if it is going to be a hassle or complicate things I will leave it on A cat.
    Cheers
    Rob

    Yea, I hope you already have your e cat endorsement and security sorted-not much time to do so.
    My guess is the cop will resist adding any new e's after there cut off

    If you already have an E endorsed licence it is just a trip to your local Arms Office with a completed POL67X form and the rifle. Simple.

    Don't think you need to take the rifle down to the station, just the POL67X Form, filled in of course. Add the date so they know you filed it before the cut off date. The cutoff date is for when the forms need to be handed over to the Police. After that since you all ready have an e-cat then you must already have the safe. If you don't have the safe then you have a few weeks to buy one and install it before they come over to do the inspection

    Says on the back of the form that the rifle needs to be presented for inspection forthwith it coming into your possession, I'd save yourself two trips.
    Again, presuming you already hold an E endorsed licence.

    They need to confirm the serial number.

    Sweet as guys, yep I have E cat and security in place and checked, so does the cut off date apply to me? Or can I just fill in the form and present the rifle sometime after Tuesday? Cheers

    When I took my form in the Station was not interested in sighting the firearm they take your form and send it off to the arms Officer. When the arms officer comes over to inspect your safe then they take note of the serial number to match it against the POL67X Form (That you had written down). As the Arms officer said to me a few weeks ago you just need to get your form in before the cut off date and if it take a month or so to be processed your still under the 6 month grace.

    If it were me, I would make sure the receiver had an affected pistol grip rather than an A-cat compliant one and get it done tomorrow.
    ie be in possession of a rifle affected by the legislative change within the grace period. I could see them declining an endorsement for a rifle that is already A-cat on inspection.

    Good advice, totally agree. Have it in MSSA config for sighting tomorrow, with the POL67X done accordingly.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.
