Default This could make you throw up

This is what it has come to this side of the pond.
Perfectly serviceable and in some cases rare weapons, totally mutalated.
Do your own search on deacts UK its a horror story.
Hear is one such link.

What happens when they are deactivated? Are they done for ever or can someone get the parts and make the working again? I don't know. Just curious.

They are pretty much scrap metal.

Default Thompson 1928

This is 1928 Thompson with the insides all cut out and the top slide welded shut.
Surely there must be a way of saving these fine old weapons. They are up for sale once deactivated for as little as $500. Looking at the price in USA this has got to be a business oportunity. The problem is the UK still has thousands of WW2 weapons that simply have no value here as all are illegal. I know several licenced fire arms dealers over here if anyone is interested in forming a partnership. I am convinced we could make a few bucks
