Somewhat unusual question about firearms parts (QLD)!!
« on: October 24, 2019, 03:49:06 am »
I've noticed at a gun show at least one dealer selling destroyed firearms as firearms parts. Basically worn out old shotguns and 22's(Cat A/B only) that he's put a drop saw through. This is in QLD and apparently you need a licence to purchase them but no PTA, as its not a functioning firearm, just parts. My question is, how far do you have to destroy a firearm for it to stop being "firearm parts" and become scrap metal, that anyone can handle or own, licensed or not? I did try to ask this particular dealer but couldn't get a straight answer. The reason being that I had the idea of buying a destroyed 12 gauge and building a free standing floor lamp. But I don't want run afoul of any laws. I could do it with a permanently deactivated gun but the destroyed "parts" guns are much cheaper. Basically it would be a shotgun standing upright on a base with a light bulb in the end of the barrel.
If I were to do it I would make sure none of the parts could actually be used in a working firearm again. I don't think it should be a problem but since this is Australia you never can be too careful.[url=https://sarkariresult.onl/]https://sarkariresult.onl/[/url] Mobdro https://pnrstatus.vip/

Wrong place to ask the question, we only talk about wood bows and have a small section mostly about building sidelock muzzleloaders and accoutrements.

If you can legally own a gun there is no issue.  The only controlled/regulated part is the receiver.  If the receiver is destroyed/damaged beyond repair it is all scrap.  If in doubt never sell the gun after you turn it into a lamp.  I also have no idea what QLD is or PTA.... :-)

FWIW
