Also by your logic all metal pipes of sufficiently small inside diameters should be considered firearms as they could potentially be converted into rudimentary firearms by someone with the inclination to do so?
Yes even a pipe can BECOME a firearm. But there is AIRSOFT that has their own FIREARM REFERENCE TABLE numbers and yet technically are NOT powerful to be classified as firearms by the firearms act.
The moment airsoft started being assigned FRT numbers then they stopped being "just toys" in most cases.
