Hi Everyone

Being from the UK, I am subject to (overly) strict firearms laws. I have just applied for my Fire Arms Certificate but my local police force has told me this could take around 12 months to arrive.

Until then i am using my little .177 pellet guns, Beretta CX4, Walther CP99 etc. I was wondering if there is a .177 or .22 version of the M4/M16? Pref CO2, not pre-charged but anything accepted.

If anyone has seen one/has one to sell, please let me know. These are the only legal things I can buy at the moment. My best friend is a firearms dealer here in the UK so I can have things shipped to him, but he does not know where to start looking for one.

If you can help, let me know!

Cheers

Ian

Hi Armoredman

Believe me, if I could afford it I would be there right now swimming in guns I could only dream of owning here in England, even with a Firearms certificate!
