Drake...here in Germany it is not easy to have the permission to buy a gun. Specially not an pistol/revolver or an Semi-Automatic-Rifle.
You have to be 1 Year in a shotting club, make 18 Trainings per Year and after that you have to make an examination about weppons handling. Buying a safe to store ist, and for every gun (max. 2-3 SAR) you have to make an request WHY you need it. Means: Searching for a discipline, where you have to own THAT gun.
So i have an German G3 vor shoting disciplin with Scope 12X, an Arsenal AK-Clon vor ironsight discipline and the SVT for Ordonance discipline with 4 X scope.
Thats the deal here
You have to make 1 competition each year, otherwise your guns are gone
BTW: If you drive a little drunked with you car -> Guns are gone
Shooting in garden, like you...haha......maybe better not to think about.
About competitionresultats i dont care. but its nessesary to make them...
But thanks for the help. I will try to shoot without pin. Maybe opening the rear "hole" to prefent moving back?
And about "modifying the weapon". Until 2003 here in germany was fobidden to own a gun with muzzle break, holes for cooling the barrel, and magazines.
So look, how SVT weappons loke like before 2003. Castratet. So its not a big problem here to modify one with the notch.
Dont cry by looking on the picture. But such SVTs are avaiable in tons here in Germany. About 100 USD.
Normal uncut SVTs about 300 as i wrote.
