If one wants to be realistic about the situation, assume that airsoft guns are Replica Firearms for all intent and purpose under law.

Secondly, it does not matter to the Firearms Act whether a replica can shoot or not. It only matters whether something shoots over the line between real Firearm and Imitation Firearm.
Thank you for clearing that up.

Out of Sport. Have Fun!
