From 01/10/2007 the laws regarding Airsoft guns have changed for the UK. Under the VCRA Bill 2006 it is illegal to buy or sell an Airsoft gun to anyone under the age of 18 years. Under Section 36 of the V.C.R Act it is a criminal offence to alter the appearance or paint in a colour of an imitation firearm to make it into a realistic firearm.
Age restrictions when buying an Airsoft gun
The minimum age you can purchase an Airsoft Gun is 18 years.
Age restrictions when buying an BB ammo and accessories
There is no age restriction when buying BB pellets or other accessories. However items such as GAS CANS, CO2 CAPSULES, SMOKE GRENADES and FLASH BANGS may have an 18 years restriction applied.
Minimum age you can own or fire an Airsoft gun
There is no age restriction to own or to operate an Airsoft BB Gun. It is within the law for a person that is 18 years or over to purchase a two-tone (non-black) Airsoft Gun and gift it to a person that is under the age of 18 years of age to own and operate. So, a parent can buy a two-tone airsoft gun and give it to their child to use or keep regardless of their age. We recommend that an adult should supervise persons under the age of 14 years.
Buying a two-tone Airsoft gun - (Blue, bright orange, green or clear)
Anyone 18 years of age or over may buy an Airsoft Gun without any background checks. If you are buying online you will be required to tick a box to confirm that you are 18 years of age or over.
