Hi,
I will be making my own 'custom' gun (as in putting the parts I buy together myself etc.), will I have to two tone the body as my parents are NOT UKARA registered?
Sorry if this is common question, I just wanted to make sure.
Thanks,
Albert

Yes.
Ask me about general tech problems, I'm happy to help most of the time ;) I'm decent with AEGs, but my speciality is snipers, that being AEG, spring and gas. I'm quite good with GBBR systems too, WA especially.

Ask me about your Tanaka/KJW bolt action problems!

As most people make their custom guns M4 based, if this is the case PLEASE PLEASE, get a clear body.

It's so much more tasteful than a two tone.

Do you know where I can get one from?

Nope, but try to get one if possible.
Maybe second hand from someone who's CA sportline is broken?

Bit of a grey area really. To be honest you're manufacturing a RIF if you don't do the transparent bit and no one has any guarantee that you will two tone it for yourself. It's like shops selling RIF's and saying "oh by the way, give that a quick spray of a bright colour when you get home just so that we're all legal" - doesn't work like that.

Thanks, and I will be spraying the receiver green as well as the carry handle

You'll probably be best off spraying the receiver + stock/hanguard. Just to be on the safe side.

The same still applies. If it's obvious you're ordering bits to assemble a gun then it's just going to look like a RIF, saying "I will be spraying the receiver green" isn't anything solid.

As much as I can see you are a regular airsofter, you're only option is for your parents to buy you a 2-tone (with none of your money going into it) from what I can see.

Admittedly, a huge grey area, but if you don't buy all the parts in one go you won't need a UKARA number.

Don't think I'm advocating avoiding the law though, I'm not.

Well its a very grey area, of the law.
Technically yes, you can but keep it two toned- upper, lower and stock should be fine.
Spray the receivers before assembly though
Saying that, I.wouldn't advise it

or even ask the retailer to spray the parts for you?

Like Cerbo said, if you can source some Clear body parts, you'd be onto a winner with that. try looking around forums for old clear parts that people replaced once they are UKARA'd

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

I wouldn't bother.

ICS are notoriously incompatible with everything.

You'll need to modify 99% of your parts to fit it, and probably not worth it at all.

what you can do albert, is...actually they mentioned everything. um

Basically
Before assembly, get Jason, to spray all parts or source all the parts inc. the clear body, if not, buy the clear stock and pistol grip then look for as much clear things to use as poss! And then possibly ask Cerbo to fit it, as he can do it properly without screwing everything up (Hopefully including my 416...if not i want my money back, which probably wont be needed but yeah :lol: :P ) and that way you have a nice new gun, as you said, just get G&P parts and DEFINITELY Tokyo Marui because they are just too amazing, CA parts would be great and to keep it running good, i tell you now, ditch G&G parts :P

It's ares, it'll be ok...

for 5 minutes :lol:

Zak, have you been listening to marksman again? :lol:

use whatever you want to use inside, but for a truley custom gun, you want to do EVERYTHING, inside and out.

If he'd been listening to Marksman that much, he'd just be saying "Don't worry about the internals, as long as it's not G&G but just paint it OD."

Or something like that. :D
