Thanks, mate. No, you can cannot own grenade launchers in Finland and the unit on my AR is a non-working one. It's mady by DPMS but they have discontinued the M203 replica making. I got it merely for shits & giggles. he

some places in Europe they push suppressors as hearing protection. common to see them on hunting rifles. bad thing is they usually have a limit on how many guns you can own at one time.

Very nice collection.
Hope that charging handle comes in soon. I hate swapping parts back and forth....

Terrific shooters Cylinder!!!

Looks like you have your bases covered quite well

I am impressed by the number of Finns are AR enthusiasts. Maybe there are many more HK and SIG households, but the venerable AR15 still has its followers.

Cylinder what do you have to do to get a suppressor in Finland? Can you just walk into a store and buy it w/o permits or is it really involved?

ETA- Nice collection!

Yes you can.

You said under Finnish law a person is only allowed 3 rifles. Would you be allowed to own as many uppers as you want? (Does Finland consider the lower itself as the firearm and the upper as just a part?)

Here is quote from finish police homepage.. how we get guns in Finland. No quantity regulations.

Permits and licences for firearms

Permits and licences for acquiring and possessing firearms and firearm components are granted by the police. Applications should be submitted to the nearest police station in person. The police may, however, allow an application to be submitted by mail or other means, subject to the requirements prescribed by law. Firearms permits and licences can also be granted to an association or foundation registered or performing a public function in Finland.

In order to acquire and possess a firearm or firearm component, the applicant must have a justifiable purpose for its use. The applicant must also fulfil the application requirements for acquisition permits.

When applying for a firearm acquisition permit, the following must be presented:
# passport, driving licence or ID card
# the necessary documents supporting the application.

A firearm acquisition permit is valid for up to six months (except in the case of weapons collectors). After the acquisition of the firearm or firearm component, a possession permit must be applied for before the acquisition permit expires, but no later than 30 days after the acquisition of the item. When applying for a possession permit, the firearm or firearm component must be presented.

Fees:

Acquisition permit or possession permit EUR 32
