It might be the catch-22 situation, that attempting or succesfully making a purchase (even if just as a test) implicates you in a crime too.

And you sould report them to the UKARA who will take it from there
Dont buy from there because it might be a dodgy shop/website
I wouldnt take the chance
But i dont require a UKARA in Jersey becuase we dont have the VCR act over here so i can buy a RiF as long as i am over 18

Now I feel the idiot.
I've made an appointment to speak to an officer in hampshire about possibly the fruad being criminal law matter rather than civil matter under the advice of a solicitor (free first interviews ftw) but he wasn't sure if I'd be implicating myself in a crime.
I would imagine UKARA already know about SAS, its Mr. Plod who I'd like to alert.

AFAIK, it's not an offence to buy (or attempt to buy) a RIF without a defence - if you're over 18.
What is the legal status regarding attempting to purchase an AEG RIFs from a store that never asks for site skirmish/UKARA

Therefore the main restriction is on the sale of realistic imitation firearms
There will inevitably be cases where the Act will either be contravened or ignored. Should any of us be aware of such instances, it is in our own interest to ensure that such acts are brought to the attention of the relevant bodies or authorities and that law-abiding airsofters distance themselves from those involved. Remember - any breaches of the Act are not a simple 'trading standards' issue, they are a criminal act
So in short dont buy form them but insted report them becuase they could pertentually destroy the airsoft license
