I am sure there is a typo in there somewhere as I have always believed it was unlawful to accept any monies for a firearm for which the customer did not have lawful authority.


You would not be accepting monies for the actual firearm. They are showing their willingness to demonstrate to you that they can complete a contract with you by producing the right to possess and paying the full amount. By accepting the deposit, you will be agreeing to sell the firearm to them on conditions that they produce the certificate and have te funds to do so.

This is not legal.

One cannot take a deposit for a firearm without the relevant slot.

So, you see a new rifle you want biut do not have a slot or need to sell an existing one to get a variaiation. You aprroach te police with paper work, all goes theough in 14 days and you go back to te seller, who by that time has sold it to someone else.

How do you overcome that? You cannot unless you can persuade the seller of your intent and how else can that be achieved except by placing a deposit.

What about some of the top end rifles at £50k that take 3 or 4 years to produce. You have to have an open slot for four years ... and woudl you expect a dealer to make one without a deposit?

As much as I can see your point I do not make the law.

Just for sake of discussion how about calling the fee paid to the seller that indicates that the buyer is serious "an option to buy" rather than a deposit. Would this satisfy the legal requirements?
