    Ammunition Manufacturers license today.

    What are you planning on doing with that? Just curious as to why you would need one of those to sell or trade guns.

    Re: At Last. Manufacturers licence

    Thats exctly it. i need a dealers license to sell and trade guns. but to repair , modify etc i need a manufacturers license. With a manufacturers license i can develope my own actions, make my own barrels and ammunition etc. Almost all gun shops in the EU have a dealers license, not many have a manufacturers license. How is it in the states, I doubt if Remington operate only on a FFL..or does a FFL emcompas both. what do Hornady have that allows em to make ammo. I'm chuffed to bits that i'm the only Brit in Germany to hold such a license, as far as i know the only Brit in the EU (certainly Germany)to hold EU recognition in this field.

    Re: At Last. Manufacturers licence

    Pete,

    Congratulations. I'm looking at a manufacturer of firearms license as well, just to make and sell a few in a larger diameter action/bolt configuration.

    A manufacturer of firearms licence covers both rifle actions and ammunition both, but a manufacturer of ammunition license only covers ammunition, not actions... ammunition license is only 1/5th the cost however. To work as a gunsmith, just a dealer license is required. A seperate importer license is also necessary to import firearms for sale, and form 6 must be filled out and approved to import for a nonlicensee or licensee's personal use if one does not hold the importer license.

    A seperate dealer license is not required if one holds a manufacturer or importer license.

    Destructive device licenses are seperate for each of these catagories as well and cost is substantially more for each, about 20 times more.

    Thats about same as here in practice. there are many dealers who do some gun smithing under the dealers license. But they technicaly shouldn't. a dealers license covers you to deal, but not to manufacture. I figured i'g go the whole hog as the manufacturers license covers you for it all. wasn't cheap though.
