Dodgy AF Eagle6 airsoft tech proud of illegal AEG

While i'm assuming it's for an international customer that is a really dumb thing to post on their youtube page... i can't even understand why they thought that was a good idea to advertise that they're willing to produce something that's actually illegal.

Is it illegal if they can show they've already sold it to an international customer?

Like the sad person I am, I usually watch these short vids that get posted...and 99% of the time these high powered guns are mentioned that they are going oversees, where power levels are different. 

 

If you were to take the time and look at the details posted on the YT video description it does say the following...

 

"This build is for export only and is not for use in the uk. "

 

So way to go with the factually incorrect post mate... :)

 

Maybe delete this whole post as if I were Eagle6 I would be pretty pissed at you right now.... Just saying.

 

Also their YT page is not just for the UK and is seen worldwide....arugments for/against vids like this..but I don't think they're breaking any rules as it's clearly stated...where it's going. :)

The fact its going abroad doesn't change the fact that they are manufacturing an illegal weapon in the UK tho.

Fair enough... I don't know the law and maybe i'm wrong to think posting on the description is not enough to stay on the right side of the law.  Surely they checked to make sure this was legal to do...could be wrong and they've messed up bigtime, but they've been doing this for years...lost count at how many builds they've uploaded that are going abroad.

 

I don't see why it should be posted on a forum, calling them dodgy as fuck, when all it would've taken is what Rogerborg has done and let them know of possible issue with the law..and get some personal clarification if it's right/wrong and that's the end of it.  Just seems like a post to create drama, when it could've been handled better with private comms with them.  What was the aim of the post..highlight they're doing something illegal, see them get prosecuted and then feel smug about it?

 

Maybe I just took the point of your post completely wrong....and I don't mean to cause offence, but I don't see how this helps having it out in the open.

If they're producing this for a foreign market I personally don't have a problem with it.

To be honest I didn't post this to attack them but I was actually in shock that an established company would be so irresponsible.

I thought someone might let me know that I'd wrongly assessed the situation and it wasn't so bad.

Judging by their flippant response it honestly makes me question what other dodgy shit they get up to.

 

I'd be happy for this thread to be deleted if that's the general consensus.

Ahh censorship at its best!

 

Same as on my local neighbourhood group. If you post something a bit contentious or not in keeping with the sensibilities of the majority then, bingo,your post mysteriously dissappears.

 

I've had loads of posts vanish lol

Reminds me of many years ago, before there was an airsoft L85, the owner of Ground Zero built one by putting AUG parts in to a deactivated one.

He couldn't see the problem...

It does, & in the hands of someone with a bit of common sense it would probably never be an issue, but with advent of social media & the established open forums, people feel the need to show things off or share their work. 

Hence the need for some common sense when it comes to lawful stuff, making deacts able to propel projectiles, even if it is low powered bb's is an obvious (to some😏) no-no.

What an idiotic move from a business. How is this risk worth 200 views? Especially if they're deleting comments as is being said, trying to cover up this mistake. Just un-list the video, or send it direct to the customer, no reason to post a public video of your committing a nice crime.

Somewhat like cars I guess. Our speed limit is 70mph but cars are sent here from Germany that can do 170mph 🤔🤔

Does that mean I can have a bag of cocaine in the UK and ship it Columbia because its legal there? 

 

A very cromulent analogy.  You certainly can't produce it here, then say "Yeahbut, for export, innit."

 

I doubt there will be any consequences for them, although I wouldn't shed a single tear if there were.

It will be the same for anything like this that happens in airsoft, people will bring up the topic, the name and shame will happen 

 

People will express their opinions on the matter. Some will defend and others wont and in a weeks time it'll be old news and nothing will come of it

I am interested in knowing what the issue is as most of the larger retailers like Firesupport, Zero one etc will post worldwide and I am sure if they were asked to upgrade a weapon to the customers countries limits they would but because Eagle 6 has posted a video on YouTube its seen as a cardinal sin, or am I missing the point. 

 

Thanks
