Hi all,

 

Im looking at getting my first gun very soon... Ive had a look around and found a nuce CM16 Tan that i like.... When i go to buy it says "i will provide my UKARA number" does this mean i cant buy the gun until i have one?

 

Thanks, Matt.

or site membership as UKARA is not a legal requirement. Just alot of retails insist on it to cover them.

No. It's the law.

 

You can buy a brightly coloured version without a UKARA or site membership.

 

So whats the difference between a coloured one and a black one or tanned?

 

Sorry to keep on just new to this and not quite with it :D

Hi there,

 

A RIF is one that is realistic, whether that be black or tan it is deemed to be almost indistinguishable from a real gun. The brightly coloured IF's are over 50% a bright colour as prescribed by the HO that might be orange, red, green, blue or clear. You only need to be over 18 to buy one if these as thy are considered imitations and not realistic due to the aforementioned colours.

 

If I was you, I would wait until you can get your site membership sorted and buy a RIF. Second hand sales of bright IF's aren't the easiest and lose a lot of value.
