Need one clarification, in the arms rule 2016 curio means a small arm, whether double barrel rifle can come in this category.

What is the legal paperwork of curio. My father had a pistol which is 70 yr old and still on liscence. Can someone tell what is the process of declarring a endorsed weapon as curio. Will police issue us a letter for that or any separate liscence book or any official proof. How will we prove later that it is a curio and is allowed to be kept at home without liscence

If I already have a 50 year old manufactured weapon on my licence, can I get it removed from the licence and treat it as a curio? How is the age of the weapon determined?
