  1. I'll revise my statement it is an offense to sell or manufacture a RIF, toy or not. I'm not willing to be the first bloke who gets fried as the test case. If people want to be blase about selling a "toy" because they will never be the one who it bites in the arse than that's their decision. Please don't mock those of us who take the very real potential of the vcra shafting us seriously. As I said early all it will take is for someone to sell an imitation weapon to a lunatic who goes on to hold up a school and the full force of the vcra will be used. You can bet the person who supplied the weapon will be screwed. Especially in this current global mindset of fear of terrorism.
  2. Correct fella a toy gun which under British law is illegal. Illegal in my world is not good.
  3. That's alright mate. It's not worth losing my job/liberty or the sport being outright banned.
  4. Had another one tonight. His proof that he played airsoft was a couple of pictures of him in mtp sans weapon. Got very upset when i said no.
  5. Clearly should have checked that title before posting haha. So then the general consensus is name and UKARA? Do i not need their postcode to match against the database? 4 of the 5 people that contacted me were all new users on this site with no posting history which was one of the reasons i was being so specific. Cheers for all the help guys.
  6. Morning guys. In the week I have put a few RIF's for sale in the sales section of this site. I started getting enquiries straight away and i think gleaming, they will be gone In no time! Wrong. I have now had 5 people agree on prices with me and then pull out when it gets down to brass tacs. When I ask for proof of age and of being a member at a skirmish site one of two things happen. Either complete radio silence or a million excuses of why the purchase can no longer go ahead. None of these excuses i hasten to add consists of "sorry mate i can't provide that". The following is a list of information i ask the buyers for so I can satisfy proof of defence. Full name and address. Copy of either your uk driving license or passport. Copy of either your skirmish site membership card or site registration documentation. UKARA number My question is this. Is it normal to get plenty of time wasters or am i doing something wrong?
  7. Make: GHK Gun/Model: G5 Carbine Accessories: 4x Magazines, 1x Eotech Style Site, 1x Angled Foregrip, G&G Amplifier Flash-Hider Condition: Like New FPS: Approx 350FPS Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No Price/Payment: £250 ONO + P&P (Buyer covers paypal fees) Pictures: This gun basically is new. I used it briefly during one skirmish day for about 30 minutes then never used it again. There is no damage to the rifle at all however one of the magazines has a bezel which is slightly cracked however it is purely superficial damage. All of the magazines are in full working order. The Eotech style slight is in full working order, has multiple brightness settings and the cross-hair can be changed from red to green. The rifle alone cost me around £300 and the magazines where about £50 each so this is not a bad deal. If you have any questions give me a shout. Thanks for looking.

    ASG Glock 17 (i think its a 17)

    Make: ASG Gun/Model: Glock 17 Accessories: IMI Paddle holster. Condition: Used but good. FPS: Not sure as i don't have a chrono Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: no Price/Payment: £60 plus P+P (buyer covers paypal fees). Pictures: This pistol has only ever been used for shooting cans in the back garden. Apart from the scratch on the right hand side of the slide the pistol is in great condition. The magazine works as expected with no gas leak.

    Umarex Elite Force K-PDW

    Make: Umarex Gun/Model: K-PDW Accessories: Doctor Style Dot Site, Stubby Foregrip. Condition: Used FPS: Approx 310 FPS (cannot confirm as i no longer have a chrono) Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: no Price/Payment: £120 ONO + P&P (P&P will probably be around £20) *Buyer covers Paypal Fees* Pictures: This was one of my go to skirmish weapons. It has a blistering rate of fire when used with a lipo and incredible accuracy for its size. It is in very good condition but does show signs of wear. As with all Umarex RIF's it is built incredibly solidly.

    ICS L85A2 TES

    Make: ICS Gun/Model: L85A2 TES Accessories: Licensed Daniel Defence Magpul RIS, Generic British military style bi-pod drop grip, Imitation SUSAT. Condition: Like new FPS: approx 325 FPS (I am unable to confirm as i no longer have a chrono) Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No Price/Payment: £300 ONO + P&P (P&P should cost around £20) *Buyer covers Paypal Fees* Pictures: I have used this RIF briefly in one skirmish. The RIF plus all accessories are like new there is barely a mark on them. As with some of my other sales this sale does not include the original hand-guard or iron sites as they are at my parents and i don't have a firm date as to when ill be able to get hold of them. i spent about £600 on this RIF and it is basically brand new so i hope someone will appreciate it as much as i did.

    G&G GC300 S (LR300) with ACOG

    Make: G&G Gun/Model: GC300 S Accessories: ACOG Condition: Like New FPS: 325FPS Approx (i am unable to confirm as i no longer own a chrono). Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No Price/Payment: £150 ONO +P&P (I imagine p&p will be around £20). *Buyer covers Paypal Fees* Pictures: The RIF has never been used in a skirmish and has only had a few rounds fired in the back garden it literally looks like it has just been taken out of the box. The ACOG shows plenty of signs of use but the site picture is fine. The sale is for the RIF without iron sites as they are at my parents and i cant give a firm date on when i will be able to get hold of them.

    Selling RIF's and the law.

    Selling RIF's and the law.

    Right and that is what i thought but the only defenses i can see the come close to airsoft are historical reenactment or theatrical performances. Does it fall under either? I have attached a picture. I'll list them properly in the correct forums hopefully this evening. Cheers for the advice.
  14. Hey guys, I have been out of the hobby for a while now so i am looking to sell all of my RIF's. Being a good citizen and not wanting to get in trouble i decide to read up on the law surrounding selling these (found here http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/38/part/2) Now i am no legal expert and reading that makes my head hurt but i have read it and I do not understand how it is legal for us to purchase or sell RIF's as playing airsoft does not appear to fall under any of the legal defences? Please would someone with a bit more intelligence help me out on this?
