You can only purchase a RIF (Realistic Imitation Firearm) if you can prove you are an active airsoft skirmisher at a registered airsoft skirmish site OR have a valid defence for purchasing a RIF under Section 37 of the VCRA – these include the use of realistic imitations for film, television and historical re-enactment.
Proof that you are an active airsoft player can be achieved in one of 3 ways which will need to be supplied to us on our ‘Order Page’ when purchasing guns:
- Provide us with your UKARA number
- Provide us with your British Airsoft Club (BAC) number
- Provide us with proof of your valid skirmish site membership – this can be a scan of your membership card which can be uploaded to us on the order page. Please note we will check this with the site so verification may take slightly longer than methods 1 or 2. A list of valid skirmish sites we can accept proof of membership from can be found here: http://www.ukara.org.uk/approved-gamesites.php
Most Airsoft Guns we sell can be two toned to allow for legal purchase by non-defence holders – Please see our ‘Two-Toning’ service HERE
