Do you guys need a UKARA to bye or to owe a softgun thats not 2tone?
Own, no. I own a bunch of them.

Buy, yes, although technically the offences is the sellers if they can't document they sold to someone covered by the VCRA exemptions.

http://www.fire-support.co.uk have already said they will sell to me so long as I email them proof of SGUKLRP's insurance and my membership details for the society, so it's retailer dependent - most use UKARA numbers because it's easy and hassle free, but it's not the only option.

You don't need UKARA to own one, UKARA and affiliated suppliers choose to interpret the law in such a way that you must have UKARA to buy from them. As they have a monopoly on the market however you are somewhat limited if you dont and wish to purchase more.

However the law states they must take due dilligence to ensure you have a valid exemption for them to sell restricted items to you. There is no legal requirement for you to have a UKARA membership to buy or own a realistic imitation firearm.

Of course they prove very handy when the filth wish to see proof that you have an exemption and it won't do anything if they nick you for waving one around in the street etc :D

To the best of my knowledge those cheap SA80's take standard M16 airsoft clips.

Might want to be careful there. I bought a couple of springer SA80s recently for me and JD, and they dont take the standard mags.

I'll echo Sparks comment.
AEG M4 / M16 / SA80 / TAR21 and some others normally take standard M16 style mags.
A lot of cheap springers use a totally different mag system.

The same applies to weapons that take AK style mags.

That one's not cheap, but modifying a cheap springer SA80 shouldn't be too hard. Looks basically like a simple barrel extension, a rail and a bipod.

Tony I have an SA80 going spare if you fancy giving this a go. Simple springer version.
