I take it you didn't have it crono'd when you bought it...

I very much doubt the police would tune the gun up to do you, apart from being i would expect very illigal, what would be the point.

un-likely they have "turned it up"

 

and there is every chance it was over the limit when you bought it........ALWAYS CHECK !!!!!

If what you say is correct you do not stand a cat in hells chance of seeing the rifle again, you are also looking at a firearms offense which is far from good for any future prospects.

 

If you were in my firearms region you may well get locked up, you would certainly have a BIG fine and criminal record.

 

The police attitude is considerably different throughout the country, keep your fingers crossed and do plenty of grovelling!

I think they will just destroy the gun and give you a caution, if you have no or little form, but if you get caught on another fire arms charge they will stick the boot in, and flog you with rolled up gun catalogues :D

It could easily have been over the limit when you bought it and I doubt they would have tuned it up just to nab you, seems a waste of time and too much paperwork.

 

Ask for a print out of the Chrono reading. Were you arrested or reported then bailed to court or what?

 

Firearms offenses are serious and will go against your hopes of having firearms in future.
