Terms and Conditions
The most important condition is this: please enjoy using our websites and catalogues, and we hope they make it easy for you to find products which will delight and help you.
Please don't copy anything from our websites and catalogues other than for your own use; please don't change them and then redistribute them; and please don't use them to conduct activities that breach any laws or infringe any third party's rights
Our websites and catalogues are as accurate and as up to date as we can possibly make them, but we reserve the right to make changes and (because we are human) to make the occasional error
We want you to be absolutely happy with our products and services, so we provide the simple Patrol Base guarantee: if on receiving your item you are unhappy with your item for any reason than simply send it back to us. We will replace or refund the item.
This guarantee ensures that if you are unsure about what you are purchasing you have the peace of mind of knowing that we are here to help. In addition, if you decide that you made a mistake or you change your mind then please send the goods back within 14 days of receipt. Sadly, this can only apply to standard range products; we cannot accept back any item that has been made to order i.e. two tone Airsoft equipment or custom guns.
If you do decide to return anything for whatever reason then please see the information about how to return products.
The stated Feet Per Second (FPS) listed is based on the first unit taken into stock from our suppliers. We check this ourselves in store using SKANAR Brand Chronometers. Subsequent units on new deliveries or new production runs may deviate from this figure substantially. If the power level of the unit is of particular importance to you, the end user, please contact us at the time of purchase and we will try our best to cater to your needs.
11.1V LiPo batteries are for use in highly tuned and modified AEGs ONLY. The use of an 11.1V LiPo, 10.8V NiMh/NiCd or higher voltages voids all warranty on all AEGs supplied by Patrol Base Ltd. This includes units where Manufacturers, suppliers, other retailers or the Airsoft media state that a unit is 11.1V LiPo ready.
Please note, we can only accept returns which are returned to us unmodified from their original state. This includes changes or permanent modifications to the Internal or External components of the weapon, included but not limited to: Gearbox Work (Such as Gears, Pistons, Triggers, Nozzles and Motor), or Barrel Cutting, Changing, Spraying of the Weapon, Removal of Two-Tone. This includes disassembly weapons, with the exception of expected maintenance (Such as Pistol Cleaning, or Barrel Cleaning).
We cannot accept returns which have had work carried out by other Retailers, or Airsoft Techs such as an attempted repair.
If any problems arise from user error we cannot accept a retun, however we will help you in repairing the problem. Examples of User Error are, and not limited to:
- Weapon Modification
We do understand that users like to modify their weapons, however, once a permanent modification has been made, or if the weapon has been taken apart outside of expected maintenance (Such as Pistol Cleaning, or Barrel Cleaning).
- Stripping a Weapon Completely during Cleaning
Typically, stripping and cleaning a pistol only entails splitting the Slide and Frame, and cleaning the Barrel, wiping dirt from moving parts and applying fresh lubricant. Removing parts, such as the trigger mechanism, and damaging them is concidered user error.
Typically, stripping and cleaning an AEG / Gas Blowback Rifle entails removing the inner barrel for cleaning. Any further work, such as Gearbox Maintainance, should be carried out by our Shop Technicians.
For further help on maintaining weapons please free to call us on 01484 644709.
- Use of Poor Quality BBs
Please don't use Cheap / Low Quality BBs in Airsoft Replicas supplied by us, if we find evidence that low quality BB have been used we cannot accept a return. Unfortunately, more and more RIFs booked in to our workshop with damage caused by a poor choice of BB. Poor quality BB’s are BB’s which have been manufactured in a location with poor quality control, resulting in ammo which breaks easily, has mold lines, injection marks or poor weighting ratio. We recommend using BBs supplied by: ASG, G&G, King Arms, BB Bastard, and Amoeba. If we feature the BBs on our website they are safe to use with your Airsoft Weapons.
- Damage by Dropping, Force Damage and Debris
Although Airsoft Guns are typically built and designed to last they are Toys, and are not manufactured to the same quality as Real Firearms. As such, dropping, hitting, throwing, and dipping in mud can cause permanent damage to Airsoft Replicas. We cannot accept returns of weapons that have been obviously mistreated, with parts missing and broken.
- Use of the incorrect Charging unit
Please ensure that when charging batteries the correct Charging unit is used. For example, do not use a Li-Po Charger to charge a Ni-Mh battery, or a Ni-Mh Charger to charge a Li-Po Battery. Please read all supplied instructional material, as we cannot accept the return of items damaged in this way.
- Use of 11.1v or Higher Li-Po Batteries
High Voltage / Discharge batteries can cause permanant damage to AEG internals, please see the section below for further infomation.
Returns Related to included Free Chargers / Batteries
Unfortunately we cannot accept returns of Batteries and Chargers that comes supplied in a bundle with a weapon as these are considered free gifts and are typically of a lower quality than other available chargers and batteries. For example, batteries supplied for free with weapons usually features a low mAh rating and feature a low charge capacity.
We recommend that when purchasing an Airsoft Weapon you also purchase a new Battery and Charger (if required) for maximum reliability.

Pricing & Stock
We try to make sure that pricing is as accurate as possible. The correct price for any product is that displayed on the website at the time we receive your order. If we make a mistake on price and it is higher than it should be then we will refund the difference.
We will always try to give you the best possible deals and to be as fair as possible on price.
If an item is on sale, it might have been sold in our retail store. If so, the 'was' price will always be the highest price in the last 12 months via any of our companies, and it will have been at that price for at least 28 consecutive days. The 'now' price will always be the lowest price it has ever been via any of our companies, websites or retail store.
We also try to make sure that stock levels are as accurate as possible, and we always try to keep items in stock ready to be sent to you as soon as you want them (this includes our suppliers where some items are delivered directly to you).
Items on sale might run out at any time. Once we have run out of stock we will not be able to accept any orders for the item.
Ordering & Payment
Orders are only accepted when we dispatch them. We might not be able to accept your order if:
• Your funds don't clear, whether you are paying by credit card or cheque
• We have made a pricing or product description error
• A product is out of stock, is not available, or was a sale item and all stock has cleared

If you do send goods back for any reason other than a fault you will normally be asked to pay the carriage charges – we could offer this for 'free', but of course there's really no such thing, we would just have to recover the costs in our prices. We would rather be completely straight with you, keep our prices as low as possible, and just ask you to pay if you choose to return anything.
Our returns address is:
Patrol Base Limited Unit 5 Dale Street Mills, Dale Street, Huddersfield, HD3 4TG.
Patrol Base Limited, Unit 5 Dale Street Mills, Dale Street, Huddersfield, HD3 4TG;
Company Registration Number:
6906085; VAT Number: 975 9216 72.
Patrol Base Limited provide a service where Airsoft models/realistic imitation firearms (RIFs) can be altered from their original state by covering a substantial proportion of the RIF with a bright colour. We reserve the right to coat or paint whatever parts of the RIF we deem necessary for the RIF to be a 'two tone'. We will always make every attempt to minimise colour on areas of perceived wear but this can not be guaranteed in all cases. Similar RIF models could, in some cases, be painted differently.
A two tone service can take up to five working days to complete from the first full business day after the purchase date.
The intent of the service is to provide an option to purchase an Airsoft model/RIF for those who are 18 years of age and above and who do not hold a recognised valid Airsoft Defence*.
The onus is on the seller of a RIF to make sure they only sell to a legitimate purchaser, prosecution could result as a failure to do this.
The only groups of persons now allowed to purchase RIF's are Film,TV, Museums, Theatres, Crown Servants, and persons engaged in Re-enactment activities, and airsoft skirmishing. All these purchasers must be over 18 years of age.
The colour will usually be Krylon Patriotic Blue but we reserve the right to change this colour without warning. We have chosen this coating as, in our experience with several other coatings, Krylon can be applied easily and has better long time performance.
The service is a paid for addition to a RIF purchase. We do not provide the service for RIFs purchased at another retailer. Due to the nature of some substrates the coating/paint may be removed on points of abrasion wear such as hand guards, pistol grips, pistol slides and rifle stocks. We do not warrant the paint finish quality or adhesion properties. If we use Krylon the paint is said, by the manufacturer, to be 'chip resistant' after seven days. We do not guarantee a 'standard' of paint finish or coverage.
Solvents, oils etc may have an adverse effect on the paint and may in some cases cause accelerated wear. As we often are able to ship a two tone prior to the elapse of the seven day cure time some paint may wear off on high points whilst in transit. If you would like you two tone purchase to be shipped after the seven day cure time please telephone the office as soon after placing the order as possible.
The date of two tone application should be hand written on your invoice sent with the order. If this date is not present then a record is kept in the workshop diary and we would be happy to confirm any dates on the telephone.
Although we may be able to fulfil and deliver your order before the seven day cure time we do not recommend handling the two tone areas until this time has elapsed.
We limit the amount of overspray where possible to minimise any effect on the correct function of the RIF. Some overspray may be present where masking is favoured over complicated disassembly.
Once painted we are unable to take the product back for a refund or store credit. If on receipt a new RIF does not fire BBs or is thought be in some way faulty then contact Patrol Base in the first instance by TELEPHONE during business hours stated on this website. Do not under any circumstances attempt to diagnose or fix any issues by disassembling the RIF in any way no matter how small. Any attempt to do this will invalidate your option to have the issue diagnosed and if applicable,Tone fixed at no cost to yourself.
Once a two tone order is placed the two tone service could begin immediately. If, once an order has been placed, you wish to cancel you must call the office line 01484 644709 during office hours and confirm with a member of staff that you wish to cancel. If work has started on the RIF we may not be able to provide a refund for that part of the order.
If for any reason the above terms are in anyway unacceptable you then please do not order the service. Placing and completing a two tone order on our website or in store means you have read and accepted the above terms.
NB - to remove a two tone coating or paint could be construed as 'manufacturing a realistic imitation firearm' and as such that person could be prosecuted.
