  1. Airsoft in backgarden

    you are correct, It wasn't is the Firearms act... I was mistaken. It is in the Guidance On Firearms Licencing https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/518193/Guidance_on_Firearms_Licensing_Law_April_2016_v20.pdf
  2. Airsoft in backgarden

    Legally airsoft guns are classified as low powered airguns under the firearms act. They are deemed so low powered that the conditions of the VCRA are sufficient. So yes, you could still potentially be prosecuted for armed trespass
  3. Airsoft in backgarden

    Legally, you are pefectly entitled to shoot anywhere on your property provided: The ammuniion doesn't leave your lawful boundaries (fences and the like normally determine these) unless you also have permission of the land owner where the pellets will pass through and eventually land. And You don't cause a public distress. Example A - shooting in your from garden. Legal but stupid. You can shoot there, but typically front gardens a visible to the public. If somebody reports you the firearms teams will turn up. You could be prosecuted for causing distress to the public but not for the actual shooting of the gun. Example B - shooting targets on a fence. If you line up targets on top of a fence or wall, missed shots could travel past your boundary. This is technically armed trespass unless the neigbours know it is happening and give permission, otherwise it is VERY illegal. If the pellets travel onto public land (the road for example) this is also armed tresapass. Advice: Make a flyer detailing your intentions. Explain what the ammo is and that the gun is essentially a radio controlled car in a different body. Maybe use Google maps to get an aerial photo of your garden and the surrounding area and detail where you plan to shoot Drop it off to all neighbours who have a window overlooking your garden. Make sure it have a pellet catcher behind the target. I favour some kind of box opening with loose towels in it to absorb the impact. Basically you need to do everything you can to not be seen by the public or calm their fears if they see you. Happy shooting and dont forget your eye protection

    Happy to talk trades or part exchanges
  8. PTS Masada family

    Make: PTS Gun/Model: ACR Masada Accessories: see description Condition: used FPS: various Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: will split whole guns but not parts Price/Payment: £1000 including all fees and postage. Pictures: I have up for sale my family of ACR Masadas I appear to have amassed. There are 4 working guns here although not enough body pins to have all 4 working at the same time. They benefit from a quick change spring gearbox and are currently in the region of 430 fps for the DMR and 330 for the CQC and carbine. They are currenty All sporting the STANAG lower and will take the majority of M4 style mags on the market based on the original TM design. Included in the sale is at least one AKM lower, although I am sure I have a second, 5 AKM mid caps and the metal RIS front end that are becoming increasingly difficult to acquire. If new, there is in excess of £1600 of hardware here so £1000 including any fees and delivery is more than reasonable. I am looking at cash sales to fund a new project so no trades at this time. I am happy to sell the guns off individually but I will not sell the component parts on their own. If you need just the stock, you will need to buy the whole gun and sell your excess parts yourself. The guns are located in High Wycombe if you would like to see them in the flesh / collect.
  9. How I'm understanding UKARA

    Legally you don't need UKARA at all, but let's take a closer look at this United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association UKARA is by retailers, for retailers. it is recognised by the law makers as a good practice in order to prove due diligence prior to making a sale. It is NOT law. Think of it as the Police ANPR system. Years ago ago if a Police officer was suspicious about the legality of your car they would pull you over and you had provide sufficient proof that you were legally entitled to be driving that car. ownership / permission of owner tax insurance mot if the officer was not satisfied that you were legit they would issue a "7 day wonder" or a producer. That gave you one week to go to a police station of your choosing and produce your documents to the satisfaction of the duty desk officer. Nowadays their camera flashes your number plate and they know if they need to tug you over or not. Transferring that to Airsoft and UKARA - production of a UKARA registered site membership merely proves you have been pre-approved. Somebody else has done the leg work in verifying you are a bonafide player and selling to you is legal. The key point is that the seller needs to satisfied to the point of defending their actions in court if necessary that you are both over 18 and intend to use the gun for Airsoft purposes. The states that. UKARA goes above and beyond that as it shows commitment to self policing and it means no retailer should fall foul, thus bringing the industry into disrepute. Google VCRA 2006, section 37. Section 37 lists all legal defences applicable. Airsoft comes under "permitted activities" so actually is less robust than re-enacting. You will notice that at no point is UKARA mentioned.
  10. reusable smoke grenade?

    Most sites I know of with a CQB environment allow: Smoke in open - screening / cover / distraction Smoke in a room - toxic, 9 seconds to get out or be killed
  11. reusable smoke grenade?

    Smokes use a solid fuel that burns. Once it's burnt it's gone, much like your car running out of fuel. They also burn hot, so having it reusable would be a risk to burning your own hands. At the absolute best, you may get a double use grenade (not saying they exist as I'm certain they don't, but it could be feasible to make if not completely daft and pointless). The tube could have a petition in it so you have a smaller fuel cell and means of igniting at both ends - but again, seems pretty pointless to me.
  12. Business ideas ??

    Do you know the fastest way to become a millionaire in the Airsoft industry? Start off as a billionaire!
  13. Business ideas ??

    Avoid hobby type business' such as airsoft! When the belt needs tightening or the fat needs trimming, hobbies are one of the first cuts to be made. Invest in something that will never dwindle. Gold is always a sure thing but essential services is another. Like above, property! Get to auctions and get repo houses. Massive profit margins. Don't worry about bad clients...... Typically rent is higher than mortgage which leaves enough cash to pay for somebody to worry on your behalf. If you know a builder / contractor have a serious word with them. Get the. To come to auctions and look at properties with you. Trust their instinct and trade experience.

    Seconded. I have used him in the past and dealt with him face to face at the Airsoft Showcase held at Strikeforce CQB last year. A top bloke more than happy to spend the time with his customers.
  15. Spring sniper rifle suggestions please.

    If you are upgrading then the JG is a sold I'd option as you seem to already have a bunch of parts for it. The mags are small, lightweight and fit into pistol mag pouches so can be carried in the minimal of it. I really like the look of the ARES striker and the 45 round mag is a bonus. Short pull, AEG springs, VSR compatible in other areas. It's a relative new comer and I've not had any first hand experience with one but a buddy of mine really likes his. I. Not a fan of SVD springers. I have short arms. The long stock coupled with the bolt handle being quite a ways forward makes it awkward for me. They aren't so bad in a shoot and scoot style of game but if you have crawled into a concealed position it can be more troublesome on obvious when you re-cock the thing. I have an M40a5 and really like the ergonomics of it. No idea on the performance of the APS one but it will be really comfortable to hold and shoot. I know nothing about the Cyma so cannot offer any constructive opinions on that I'm afraid.
