Ah yeah you might be right there.. Section 5(1)(aba) says "other than an air weapon".
That 30/60 thing was introduced back in 97 to make Pistols prohibited. As far as I can find there doesn't seem to be any other definition of what constitutes a pistol in law. and no law that I can find that says you can't convert a pistol to a rifle.
Lots of people seem to think you can't though, so there must be something somewhere?
