One of the most asked questions is, “how can I buy a black airsoft gun”?

There are a few different ways that you can become eligible to buy a RIF (Replica Imitation Firearm) i.e. a black replica airsoft gun that is not brightly coloured or clear and known as a 2 tone gun. The best way is to become a member of an Airsoft Site or Airsoft Organisation such as UKARA.



The following steps show how you can become eligible to buy RIF airsoft guns in line with UK airsoft regulations.

  1. Attend an Airsoft 101 shooting range event at least 3 times over a minimum of 2 months
  2. Pay £10 and become an Airsoft 101 club member
  3. Ask your airsoft retailer to confirm your Airsoft 101 membership at http://members.airsoft101.co.uk
  4. Select and buy your RIF airsoft guns


We hope this information will help you understand the steps required to buy an RIF airsoft gun. If you need any further information please contact us or drop in to our next event.



It is airsoft retailer’s discretion whether they accept your membership to Airsoft 101 as eligibility to buy a RIF airsoft gun from them. All retailers have the right to refuse sale to anyone without reason so please ask before you make an online purchase. Just BB Guns accept all Airsoft 101 members that are 18 years or over as an airsoft enthusiast and under UK law will be happy to sell an airsoft RIF gun.
