Well if i am right anything above 500 FPS is classed as a air rifle

I have never heard of not beeing able to use cartages as these use CO2 and loads of poeple use CO2 in their mags

so no i dont think it is illegal

it isn't 500FPS, it is actually considerably higher than that.

also, the cartridges will vary as to the FPS delivered from gun to gun.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

Not that I know, but I doubt it's just based on the FPS, if you go crazy on an airsoft gun it doesn't suddenly become an air gun.

To me it's that air guns fire .177's or .22's not 6mm plastic BB's.

Ok, I'll summarise it for you.... ;)

The max legal limit is 1.35j using a 0.2g bb, giving 328fps - this applies to anything capable of semi or full auto. However, most UK sites like to have a restriction of 1j.

It's slightly different for anything single shot, such as a sniper rifle. Most sites will allow maximum 500fps for this. At this stage you are now technically firing a low powered air weapon. The reason this is ignored is because the projectile is still not capable of penetrating the skin, so is not classed as a "true" air weapon. Despite the fact that the power would be around 2.3j, you get away with it on a "technicality".

Hope this helps.....

I've seen a 450fps sniper penetrate skin

.......at what range though?

Many sites have a rule that you cannot use one of the higher powered snipers at less than 20 feet.

About 4 feet, (which resulted in a spray in retaliation).
Thats good to know

Should never be as close as 4 feet, that's why.
