Is your statement based on actual laws?
The pulse rifle is not a replica firearm since the definition of replica firearms requires that it be a replica of an actual firearm. Therefore the magic +430 fps doesn't apply.
Since the airsoft pulse rifle shoots below 500 fps it is not a firearm.
An I missing something which would prohibit the pulse rifle from being imported other than customs seizing because it feels like it.
