    What is the law on black powder weapons? At what age can someone buy one, or a kit? How old do you have to be to get black powder? Is the law concerning black powder handguns different then regular handguns?

    Is there an ATF link for that?

    Thanks for any info........

    Black powder firearms are excempt from the CGA...

    However, state laws may restrict them.

    Federal Firearm Reference Guide - 2000

    You must be 21 to buy Black Powder.

    ATF - Explosives

    I know this is an old thread, I am reviving it because I am interested in real experiences of people who are NOT FFL licensed and have exported antiques to Canadians. I have a gentleman that bought my Webley MKII (sold it on Gunbroker) and after doing extensive research, it appears all I need is to attach the Canadian customs approval letter (that he will send me) on the package and just mail it.

    I would appreciate KNOWLEDGEABLE comments. Thanks to all

    When was it made?

    Guns made in or before 1898 are certainly antiques under US law.

    MKII definitely falls under that criteria.
