The purchaser must also be over 18 years of age.

UKARA - What is UKARA?
UKARA stands for 'United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association' and is essentially a big database of all registered Airsoft Skirmishers in the UK, which allows Retailers to check an individual to see if they are elligable to purchase Replica Imitation Firearms (RIF). A UKARA Registration is recognised as a valid defence against purchasing an Airsoft Gun.
To obtain a UKARA registration an individual must Visit an Airsoft Skirmish Site 3 times or more outside of two months, at which point the Site can stamp your paperwork which must be handed in to a Retailer for entry onto the database.
If you do not wish to Skirmish or Simpy want to Target Shoot, then in order to obtain the weapon you must either have an Alternate Valid defence or have the weapon in Two Tone colours. Any weapon we have can be Sprayed Two-Tone in order to meet these requirements. Please see the section below.
Two Tone Service
Most Airsoft weapons, such as AEG, Gas Blowback and Rifles can be purchased from us, but only with a UKARA Number, or simmilar defence. Using the Two Tone service you can purchase the weapon without any Defence, only needing to be over 18.
When purchasing a weapon which you want to be Two Toned please add the service to your basket, one for every weapon.
To be classed as 'Two Tone' the weapon must be primarily a none-millitary colour, such as bright Blue, Red or Green. Some weapons come pre-two toned with the body parts already manafactured, but others can be Sprayed to qualify.
If you purchase a gun with the Two Tone Package please note that you should allow for between 1-5 days for completion, and that next day service only applies once the two tone is complete.
