How sad hearing words like "deactivate to comply..."
Another beautiful piece of history victim of ignorance of men ruling nations without trusting in their own people.
Ahhh, but that said, I had a beautiful deactivated Bren gun with crate I bought in the UK for a whopping $200. I couldn't bring it back with me because it broke US laws with the intact reciever. All it had done to it was a pin inserted in the barrel (not visible), and a corner cut off of the bolt (again, not visible). I could pull back the charging handle and it would click like it should. So, sometimes, it's a reverse of fortune.... In the UK, you don't have to completely destroy a weapon to deactivate it. Most deactivated weapons still function, i.e. throw the bolt back and hear the click, etc. I saw some sweet 100% original guns I could only wish I could of brought back like Schmiessers, MP44's etc..... Unfortunately, in the states, the VAST majority of guns such as the Bren gun have cut recievers requiring resoldering which looks like crap or an aluminum reciever which sux.
