NO ITS NOT if you are a re enactor film or TV use and you are a member of a re enactment group they do not have to be Orange in colour, but if you are not in any of those groups then it wopuld have to be orange, and they do not make that colour

I was curious, so I did a bit of google.... seems these are semi auto only? Or at least in Germany where they are made that is the case.

I guess it's better than nothing at all and pull the trigger fast and it's near as dam fully auto plus I guess it saves on the cost of blanks. Some people will want though I'm sure but I posted it for info because there is not much on the market like that for the price tag I believe they are not bad money and come fully certified that they are uk VCR act complient

Looks like another expensive piece of junk that you can't get your money back if you tried to sell it and something your lumbered with if the law changed at the flick of a pen. Looking at the type of blanks it's using you'd probably get through the amount it costs for the gun.

I'm puzzled by what you mean by VCR Act compliant .. ??

The VCR Act gives the definition of an imitation firearm and a realistic imitation firearm ... and yes lays down rules for owning/using them, it doesn't I think give specifications as such as to what they should be able to do, or not do ... that comes under the specs as laid down regarding how a BF should comply with British Govt. rules, and as we have seen, many BF guns available on the market in the EU, (I mean the continental EU) are not allowed to be sold or owned here because they don't meet those stringent rules.
Are you saying that these guns do meet those specs. and that there would be no problem buying and owning them, is that what you mean by VCR Act compliant .. ..??

Yes these guns do meet the spec for the UK and can be purchased in the uk by reenactment groups film co etc. The do conform to all guidelines on imitation and blank fireing weapons for reenactment sorry for the confusion so yes I am saying they meet those specs,that allow them to be sold in the uk. They will have paperwork supplied with them to back all this info up.

I have seen no rules or specifications from the home office what design constitutes a legal BF, there is some definition from Steve Goodmans design but not any from the Home office the spec they want. It's all up in the air at the moment especial blank firing machine guns. There's no hard or fast rule for gas guns either, the coppers depending who knocks on your door could make up a load of bull until it gets to court. I am sure when a official design is produced manufacturers will make them to that spec, you can't produce something which you think is legal but is held to question by plod.

Whether something is legal can only be tested in The courts.
