It is not illegal to own a RIF regardless of age. You're fine.

 

It is an offense to sell a RIF, and the seller needs a defense, UKARA is one such defense.

 

Your cousin is gifting you a RIF, so it's also fine.

so airsoft sites wont ask for a defense?

 

Nobody there will give a stuff how you got it, so long as you're circumspect about how you transport it there.  In the boot of a car, fine. If you carry it on a bus in a gun shaped bin-bag while wearing camo and whispering "Soon, mighty Satan, soon", that might not go so well.

 

Check with the site about their age limits: you'll almost certainly need a parent or guardian to sign a consent form.  Some sites (or their insurers) might not be too happy about you playing solo under 16.  It's very much site dependent though, andif you're half sensible, and take your hits, they might not be hugely bothered in practice.

You’ve received it legally and can possess it

 

As above the site won’t care how you obtained it, they are just interested in you behaving in a safe manner and following the rules

Behaving in a safe manner includes how you act when you aren’t in a site, such as transporting the RIF bagged up etc and trying to avoid the way it is bagged from looking what is in there.

 

You have the advantage of having a RIF so you won’t be so desperate to change a two tone IF to a RIF or try to obtain a RIF as your next buy

 

Go, play, have fun and spend the next 3 years building up the experience to inform your future spending once you can gain your own UKARA status

Christ...imagine there being three years until your 18th Birthday. Even after that you've got another 15 years of being spritely and only having one day hangovers....errmm, I mean welcome to the forum!
