Upgrade of sub 12 ft lbs S510 to FAC

Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:59 pm

I am thinking of applying for an FAC. Rather than buy a new rifle I would like to upgrade my current S510 in .22. I would not want the power adjustable as the FAC rated ones comes from the factory. A fixed output would be just fine. Could this gun be upgraded to FAC by an RFD gunsmith.

Yes it can and you will have to inform your licensing dept, but be warned once it is FAC levels you cannot return it to being a non-fac rifle so you will effectively de-value it... :?

You could buy the fac internal bits and have it put on ticket but it’s cheaper to buy one already done.
Also a gun up rated to fac can be taken off ticket but I believe it’s a pain in the bum getting it :o
