Airsoft in the UK


Recommended Posts

So I never followed what happened after they passed that violent weapons bill a while back, apparently they just basically set up a gun control thing.


"Airsoft Skirmishers" are allowed to buy the imitation rifles as well as others, this is their site.




Their FAQ



Who are UKARA ?


UKARA are a group of Airsoft retailers who have formed an association to protect their businesses and enable the sale of Realistic Imitation Firearms ( RiF's) to the newly restricted recognised and approved customers resulting from the Violent Crime Reduction Act (VCRA).

Who are the eligible purchasers ?


The only groups of persons now allowed to purchase RiF's are Film,TV, Museums, Theatres, Crown Servants, and persons engaged in Re-enactement activities, and airsoft skirmishing. All these purchasers must be over 18 years of age.

How do players become members of an approved game site and eligible to buy RiF's ?


The games site has to record you as a member and preferable issue you with a membership card.

To qualify as an ?airsoft skirmisher? you must be a regular player at that game site having attended not less than 3 time in not less than 2 months.
