All in all saints right except you can modify the muzzle velocity in an aeg and some gbb pistols (kjw by adjusting hammer spring) so that they are cassified as an unregistered, unlicensed firearm, like a pellet gun, but I wouldn't allow these on a field as they can seriously injure people. this is the bases for the new cansafe guns firing at 430+fps.
All in all Saint is correct here
sorry for typos... im doing this from my phone
It clearly says in the Regina V. Willy Wong document that he was importing them as THEATRICAL REPLICAS (he even presented his theatrical replica license.) . Meaning his INTENT was to sell to licensed film wranglers NOT the general public.
He brought them in as replicas so that's what they stayed. INTENT again is the key.
Thanks for proving my point Saint
