SAGA Notice – .22LR Conversion Kits: Investigation by HAWKS Dear Member, We are sending this urgent message to all members regarding a crucial matter that has recently come to our attention. It pertains to the investigation by the Hawks into the sale and import of .22 LR conversion kits for AR-type rifles. Martin Hood, who has been intimately involved with this matter, has shared important information and insights on the legality of these conversion kits. We feel it is important to share his advice with you directly. According to Martin Hood, while it may seem that the sale of such conversion kits could be legal, given certain prerequisites such as lawful importation, registration, and sale to qualifying buyers, the real concern is the alteration of a firearm’s calibre. This is strictly regulated under Section 50 of the Firearms Control Act (FCA), which states that such alterations may only be conducted by a licensed gunsmith. He therefore advises against buying these kits and stresses that possession of such a kit is currently considered illegal by SAPS and the Hawks. In light of this, we strongly recommend that members think very carefully before purchasing these kits. The SAGA Trustees will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further updates as and when matters develop. Meanwhile, your safety, both physical and legal, is of utmost importance to us.
