Yeah. I've been looking for the older style deact AK, but they tend to be in the 5-700 GBP mark, which is a bit out of my budget. I once saw an old style Taurus Raging Bull old style deact for 650 GBP - If I wasn't poor as hell Old style deact they used to prevent the gun from firing (IIRC they filled the barrel and made it difficult to remove/filled the firing mechanism), but the mechanisms would still be workable (This was canned because they were a LOT easier to return to working order) but the new style disables the entire mechanism too, so to return it to working order would be more work than it was worth. In theory. Yes, the two tones are the "unlicensed" (Technically, it's only a register of airsoft skirmishers who have the legal defence to own RIFs, expressly for the purpose of airsoft skirmishing) variety. However, the law says you have to play X games in X time frames - A lot of sites I've seen and played at want you to play X number of games, but over a period of longer than X months. Where I am, they want you to play at least three games, but to have been playing at the site for longer than two months. Granted, they're not going to tell you to get on your bike if you play six games (That's three months), but they are if you play three games in two months and then ask for UKARA registration. The point of UKARA was to reduce the number of retailers selling them on market stalls - Granted, it was very short sighted on the governments part, because what I and other skirmishers buy (see the airsoft thread) tend to be of a much higher cost, and a much better quality than what you get off a market stall. It was done to combat the number of kids that were shooting at other kids in schools - I don't know how many UKers remember the increasing regularity with which primary school kids, pedestrians etc, were shot at with spring RIFs. As for firearms in the UK - It's really not as bad as everyone thinks. If you're a sane, nice (For the references you need), logical, person that follows the rules then you can usually have a firearms license in 18 months.
