This is indeed the case, many problems with papers and regulations but possible with a lot of time ahead. The problem is that gunsmiths in France do not want to bother with this, they prefer to sell new weapons. At the moment and in spite of increasingly restrictive regulation, many brands of AR 15 available (BUSHMASTER, DANIEL DEFENSE, WIDHAM WEAPONERY, DPMS even COLT) but much more expensive than in the USA The "European" brands SIG - HK - OBERLAND are even more expensive) And of course, the French weapons that are non - existent (the army will have the HK 416)
