my eyes got stuck on this little piece of the whole paragraph.

its not the first time i read it either, i saw it when i took my firearms course. it was written in the book.

to tell you the truth, reading : "[...]to resemble with near precision, an antique firearm." what is being said in that paragraph is that a replica of an antique firearm is prohibited.

thus, AEG's, GBB'sand other form of airsoft guns shouldnt be considered illegal devices, and prescribed as replica's.
