    It's like buying an inflatable girlfriend.

    I beg to differ, sir.
    While the "deactivated" Brit milsurps are absolutely useless, the ig you speak of is quite useful for a period of a few months.
    So you get a bit of return for your ig investment.








    So I've heard.
    I have NO experience with ig' s. None whatsoever.

    BTW, I'm currently in need of a bicycle tube repair kit. Please email post haste if you have one available.
    Thank you.

    I apologize most sincerely to all air-filled citizens whose service to the nation (read: voting democrat) cannot be underinflated... There! :D

    Looking at that site makes me shed a tear, all those beautiful C&Rs rendered useless. Better than being crushed and melted down I guess, although not by much. Britain was once a great nation. Not so much anymore.

    Does anyone have a clue what "deactivating" UK style consist of?

    Mostly welding. Each one gets a Certificate of deactivation. Thousands of them have been "reactivated" with parts replacement and gunsmithing, almost exclusively by the criminals.

    Yikes those prices are generally high, compared to a functional rifle here in the U.S. But there is a SVT-40 listed, and even at a 1.5X multiplier the price would be around the same in the U.S., except that the U.S. version would shoot.
