Find out everything you need to know about these guns, the rules surrounding them and some great budget options for those that want to expand their collection without breaking the bank.

What are Two Tone Airsoft BB Guns?

Two tone airsoft guns are just what you probably think they are – airsoft guns coloured with two different tones.

They are coloured this way to mark them significantly apart from real firearms. Bright colours like orange, yellow and blue are used on the body of the gun to clearly show they are BB airsoft pistols or rifles and not real or real imitation firearms (RIFs). These colours should also be solid block colours, although you can get clear BB guns that fit this category too.

These are the kinds of guns most people probably think of when considering BB or airsoft guns. They are available in a wide variety of makes and models, with countless different specs and specialist abilities.

Do You Need a Licence or UKARA Membership to Buy Two Tone Airsoft Guns?

You do not need a UKARA membership or any other licence to purchase a two tone airsoft gun in the UK. Anyone aged 18 or over will be able to buy one of these guns.

However, if you want to buy a single-tone RIF, you will need to give proof of a UKARA membership, showing you are a registered airsoft player at an insured site.

Can You Paint a Two Tone Airsoft Gun?

It is a criminal offence to repaint your two tone airsoft gun to make it appear like a real firearm.

However, we do have an in-house spray shop, so if you’ve got your heart set on a RIF model and can’t find the two tone equivalent, we can spray your order to ensure it meets the two tone requirements. Please note that if you request repainting, there will be a small additional charge.

Are Two Tone Airsoft Guns Good?

Don’t be fooled by the bright, child-like colours, there are plenty of high power skirmish guns with two tones that are just as good as their single tone counterparts – after all, it only tends to be the colours that indicate any difference.
