The above statement is incorrect.

I've since found out that air pistols (not air cartridge systems) are specifically excluded from Section5.

(aba)any firearm which either has a barrel less than 30 centimetres in length or is less than 60 centimetres in length overall, other than an air weapon, F5. . . a muzzle-loading gun or a firearm designed as signalling apparatus;]

I apologise for incorrect info originally posted.


ps. anyone got a good excuse for possession of a Section1 Pistol
