We often get the question " What's the most powerful airgun that I can get?" or "What’s the most powerful airgun?".

Deactivated firearms

Besides airguns and outdoor equipment, we also sell deactivated firearms.
These are firearms that have their internal components altered in such a way that they can’t be used anymore.

Because these items do not require a special license to own (depending on where you live), these are very interesting collector items.


An example
Of course, you want to know to which degree these firearms have been turned into solid pieces of steel.

Primarily, most of the cutting and welding has been done internally. So, this isn’t visible from the outside.

However, there are some visible indicators of a disabled firearm.
As an example, we will take a look at an Israeli Uzi and a Russian SKS.
