Two Tone Paint Service for Airsoft Rifles and Pistols on Land Warrior Airsoft
What is a Two Tone Paint Service?
A two tone paint service is a process of painting an airsoft rifle or pistol in two different colours, with at least 51% of the gun being painted in a bright, non-military colour. This makes the gun comply with the Violent Crime Reduction Act (VCRA) of 2006, which prohibits the sale and possession of realistic imitation firearms (RIFs) without a valid exemption. Although some airsoft guns are available as Two Tone Airsoft Guns UK from the factory a two tone airsoft paint service allows any of the products on our website to be customised to be made compliant. Exemption from the act includes:
- Membership with an Airsoft gaming site, most easily checked with systems like UKARA, UKAPU or BAC.
- Membership with a re-enactment organisation.
- Use for Film and TV.
- For display at a museum.
- Purchase by a Crown Servant for use for official Crown duties.
- Models of firearms produced before 1875.
Why is a Two Tone Paint Service Needed?
The VCRA was passed in response to concerns about the use of RIFs in crimes. The law defines a RIF as any object that has the appearance of a firearm and that is not a firearm. This includes airsoft guns, which are replicas of real firearms.
The VCRA prohibits the sale and possession of RIFs without a valid reason to purchase such as a UKARA membership, unless they are painted in a bright, non-military colour. This makes it clear that the gun is not a real firearm and helps to prevent it from being used in a crime.
Two Tone Paint Services at Land Warrior Airsoft
Land Warrior Airsoft offers two different two tone paint services: solid colour and snake skin.
- Solid Colour Two Tone Service: This service involves painting the gun with a solid bright colour, with at least 51% of the gun being painted in a bright, non-military colour.
- Snake Skin Two Tone Service: This service involves painting the gun in a snake skin pattern, with at least 51% of the gun being painted in a bright, non-military colour.
Both services are performed by experienced technicians and use high-quality paint. The paint is durable and will not chip or fade easily.
How to Order a Two Tone Paint Service
When ordering an Airsoft rifle or pistol from Land Warrior Airsoft you will be asked whether you would like to provide a UKARA membership number or would like a two tone service, with both solid colour and snake skin available. The solid colour option will add and additional £20 to the total cost of the order due to the extra steps needed to disassemble the product to paint.
A two tone paint service is a great way to make your airsoft gun comply with the VCRA and to give it a unique and custom look. Land Warrior Airsoft offers two different two tone paint services to choose from, so you can find the perfect one for your needs.
