Depending on the age of the real gun yours was meant to replicate, it may infact be prfectly legal. The benchmark they use is 1900. Anything real that was last manufactured prior to that is considered an antique, and the law is clear that a gun that replicates a defined antique is not considered a prohibited replica. But, if the gun was manufactured before 1900 and still manufactured after, it is not considered an antique.

There was a CITT appeal regarding a replica of a Colt Peacemaker. It was first manufactured in 1877, but last manufactured in 1943. It is not considered an antique for the purposes of replica legislation, even though you may own a real one and it could be considered an antique, thus not required to be registered.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
