Advice on selling

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all, first off sorry I'm sure this has been covered previously but I'm looking for some information.

 

I'm looking to sell my airsoft guns, I skirmished many moons ago before the laws came into play where you'd have to be registered to own an airsoft gun, I myself am not registered and haven't skirmished for several years, I'm selling the guns as its pointless them being here and someone else may as well enjoy them as I once did. I'm aware I need to ensure the buyer is over the age of 18 (all of the guns are RIF's not two tones) What else do I need to find out from the buyer?

 

Any/All help appreciated

The buyer need to have a defense. Most often this is a UKARA number, but there are a couple of others

Thanks for that, sorry to sound like a novice but once I have the number how do I go about checking this? Is there a data base?

depending on what defence is given.

 

if it's UKARA then you can either try getting in contact with UKARA directly to check or contact your local airsoft shop and ask if they can verify their number. you use to be able to do this manually but since their DB issue this feature isn't available.

 

If they give their site as a defence then it's the same as above in that you would need to contact the site to confirm they play there regularly

Thanks for that, really helpful, I've not played in years and thus am so out of touch with the laws, needed to be sure before selling to anyone.

Why would the buyer need a defence?  They're not committing any offence.

The defence is there to be provided to the seller so that they're not committing an offence though. So yeh, whilst there's nothing illegal for the buyer to be without a defence, any seller that knows the law isn't going to sell to you without one so that's probably what he means.
