• UKARA & The Law


    What is UKARA?

    UKARA was formed as a response to the drafting of the Violent Crime Reduction Bill in 2006 which later became an Act of Parliament.

    UKARA is an association of UK Airsoft Retailers brought together to protect themselves from prosecution and enable a safe method of selling Realistic Imitation Firearms ( RiF's ) to the largest of the permitted purchaser groups in the UK; - Airsoft Players.

    The onus is on the seller of a RiF to make sure they only sell to a legitimate purchaser, prosecution could result as a failure to do this.

    The Governments desire was to have a third party system in place which would track sales to legitimate purchasers of RiF's, checking their eligibility.

    UKARA interest was to provide such a system and make it free to sites and players, and as inclusive as possible for the future of their market, without which they would not exist.

    This has benefited all players and game sites, as it has produced a framework acceptable to the Government to allow Airsoft as a sport to remain viable.

    The UKARA database keeps a record of all participating Airsoft players and game sites, and is used by retailers and the UKBA for verification of sales and imports.

    PLEASE NOTE: Purchasing Membership does NOT entitle any player with the defense to purchase a RIF. All players must play 3 Games in no less than two months to Qualify for UKARA.
    Membership is Optional and offers discounts & other benefits.
