    Legality of owning fuzes in the UK

    Hi to all BOCN members and guests reading this , there appears to be a lot of confusion here in the UK about the legal ownership of German Bomb Fuzes, i will try to give you the correct information
    the present situation is that it is not illegal to own any type of German bomb fuze , and there is no future legislation to ban them !as they contain no hazardous material , the capicitors that once contained an electrical charge , has long since deteriated , and is no longer capable of that function.. The match composition which the charge in the capicitors would have ignited is deep inside the fuze body , and in all cases would be unable to access, so that is another hazard removed .
    Anyone who enters your premises and states that it is illegal to own ,take with a pinch of salt as they do not know what they are talking about.

    END of Lesson

    Thank you Steve as ive been flapping since one of the collector community`s has been found guilty of having some unlicensed weapons this week.

    Does your post rule apply to those fuzes on projectiles such as AZ23/AZ1,ZZ60 and the like?

    cheers

    Hi Paul
    Yes it does there are no restrictions on AZ23 etc but if they are on the projectile themself then i would advise that they be able to be unscrewable to be on the safe side , that way it proves that the projectile is empty .

    Ok and thank you yet again old friend.
    I think its a good idea to let this thread run as i for one have always been a little unsure.

    How do i go on with displaying my SD2`s and SD4?
    Another good pal in here advises me to display them completely separated?
    Currently they are all together but loose parts.

    Ok,my colleague in here advises me that items can be removed at will.
    Now are they allowed just to snatch your stuff like that?

    Im not a lawyer but i guess the police would have to produce a warrant to search and seize anything dangerous the police do not have the power to enter premises only Customs can do that
