what gun and why not just order it from a UK store?

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

Umm cause america sells a more powerfull version than the version sold in the UK, Its a Cybergun famas "springer" its nothing compared to my well L96 but im buying it for my younger brother and this gun is a great starter gun

but would it be fine for me to order this from america, it corresponds with the law, clear plastic orange tip would customs take it? :huh:

If you have UKARA, yes.
If not, no, almost guaranteed to cease it. They don't like anything gun-shaped as a general rule unless you have a defense recognised by the courts (being an actor for example)

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

it is.

just get a less powered one from the UK, it doesn't make a real difference, saves money, time, effort.

chances are the american one was chrono'd with a lighter BB anyway, plus quoted chrono's are often far from true

If it's 2 tone and you're over 18 you can purchase it. If your younger brother is under 18, he cannot purchase it from you regardless of colours etc.
