The Steyrs are nice (or atleast the A2 is)
Definitly worth the £120 (or £145 for the A3 'tactical') Easy to use, reliable, and very easy to field stip.
Take a look a the reviews (video and written).
The good thing about these in two-tone is that in real life they are already green! (Well, ok, olive drab, but its close enough :P )

My only experiance of shotguns comes from the £50-60 ones (like the M56). They were ok, but I'd take an assault rifle or SMG over the shotguns I've used anyday.

But yes - renting is good. It means should the gun break, you don't have to pay for the repairs. Unless you caused the damage...

Shotguns?

I wouldnt

The guys down my site just use them to look cooler TBH its just a over sized pistol

I have never seen a shotgun being use effectively but it depends on your site (my site is woodland)

Just a hands up :)

Sorry for all the questions, but I find this really interesting and I wanna learn more. ^_^

What do you guys think of this gun?
http://www.wolfarmou.../...ct&id=16283
I'd have to get it 2 toned for £15, but it comes with battery, charger and safety goggles and the price is very reasonable.

Any good?

Its certainly the AK variant I would choose, I'm just unsure about CA Sportlines. I believe they have plastic bushings. Anyone else know anything about them?
try googling for reviews or youtube.

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

I've been a googling, and found out that CA stands for Classic Army. :D
Also, the actual gun is all black, which i dont mind. And it's a ABS plastic body?

And I found a review on youtube saying it was very good for the price.

I have 1 more question regarding this;

What if you put fodder on the gun during a skirmish?
Is that illegal?

And remove it after finnishing the skirmish.

that is fine, and a regular occurance.
By fodder, you mean, like a scrim net or somehting, right?

If the police saw a skirmish and werent aware, they would target those with RIF's first, before those with TT and some netting wrapped around it. Skirmishing with TT is ahrder than RIF's I think.

Yes, a scrim net.
Or leaves and stuff attached to the gun.
Good. :D

Why is skirmishing with TT harder? :huh:

not so much with green and blue, but orange for example, is not a colour seen in nature. it can be seen for miles, and thus, you cannot hide in ambush.

Ahh, right, I understand.
I'm gunna specifically ask for a green one.
It's the only decent colour to have one in really.

And isn't blue illegal?

UKARA website:
The colours specified in this paragraph are—

bright red,
bright orange,
bright yellow,
bright green,
bright pink, and
bright purple.

This should be read in conjunction with Section 38 of the Act and is included for reference. It would be legal to sell an airsoft gun conforming to these specifications to a person over the age of 18 regardless of whether or not they were a registered skirmisher.

although the law says only 50% of the wepon has to be blue/red/ any other bright colour

I don't know if any ones played Call of Duty recently but if you stuck wit that rule and used black spray paint theres nothing wrong with createin red/blue tiger cammo rifles
BUT REMEMBER THE 50% rule

grey area methinks.
to make camo you need a black background
means you have to spray the whole gun black
which means you have 'manufactured a RIF'

and before you say jsut put the black on top in patches, seeing as how not all of the gun is bright, you end up with under 51% bright.


with anything regarding the law, just use common sense, don't find a way around it and just live with it. If someone managed to get to court my manufacturing a RIF, then the rest of us as a hobby and sport are fooked.

Here is the actual quote from the UKARA Website:

"The ABA, UKARA & UKASGB have successfully argued for a specific defence for airsoft skirmishing. This defence is for skirmishers only - it is not applicable to target shooters, collectors or to those with a passing attraction to realistic imitation firearms. Therefore the main restriction is on the sale of realistic imitation firearms (RiF). You may legally keep any you own prior to the Act coming into force. The Act has no effect on skirmishing, nor has it any impact upon an individuals' ability to purchase accessories, spares, replacement parts etc. It is the sale of complete guns that is affected. It is likely that a court would view the assembling of component parts to produce a realistic imitation firearm as ‘manufacture’. It may well take the same view if a brightly coloured imitation firearm was painted to make it look more realistic."

What the VCRA means to you:

In a nutshell, it is NOT illegal to own an airsoft gun, nor is it illegal to skirmish using a RiF. It IS illegal to purchase, import or make a RiF unless you can prove yourself to be eligible to the defence.

How do I qualify for the defense?

To be entered into the UKARA database of registered Airsoft Skirmishers you must:

◦BE OVER 18

◦Have Played A MINIMUM of 3 games (at the same site) in NO LESS THAN 2 months. ie; 3 games spaced over a period of 9 weeks should be enough.

This is a good explanation on both fronts:

So in short:

NO respraying if you have got a defence

NO "call of duty" paint jobs that might be 50% bright colours

and

NO getting around the law like memcwho said just live with it

Just noting a typo there that makes all the difference....

NO respraying if you have got a defence


should read NO respraying if you have NOT got a defence

Yes memcwho is correct. You have to be UKARA registered to be able to respray it (and even then, I've been warned of some issues surrounding this)
Otherwise people would just buy two-tones and spray them black (or whatever the real colours are)



No such law preventing you from painting an airsoft gun in the UK.

It is not Manufacturing.

It is not selling.


Only in the US is it a criminal offence not to have the end of the barrel a red colour.


Ignore what anyone else says.

hmm.... you are wrong on all those points

it IS manufacturing. making it into a RIF is manufacturing.

and in some (most?) states you can remove or paint the orange tip after it has been sold.

so... ignore what you say.
