Hello there,

I'm really here to seek advice and find one perticular gun.
Always since I was a 'yung un' wanted a mauser broomhandle. Never had the chance and with replicas being banned thought, after looking on the net, I could get a decent looking airsoft one.

Have seen a write up on the Mauser M712 "Broomhandle" - HFC which fits the bill, but wondered if there was anything better around now, or where I could get one of these.

Thanks.

very few companies make them, so if the HFC one is good for your needs go for it, also will it be used for skirmishing or a display piece?

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

Maybe a bit of target pinking fun but mostly display.

are you aware of the laws around UKARA and VCRA?
Basically, the VCRA means that you can't purchase a RIF unless you have a valid defence.
UKARA is the main body for airsofters and sites to continue to buy/sell RIF's (black guns) if you don't have that it is basically the gun has to be over 50% brightly coloured.

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

He's pretty much just explained it to you.

UKARA stands for United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association
RIF stands for Realistic Immitation Firearm
VCRA stands for Violent Crime Reduction Act

Yep just read though, seems my idea of getting one to hang it on the wall is a no no here then. Or at least is to complicated just for an ornament.

OK thanks for that.
