Default how easy is it to remove the two tone paint?

hi.
i took the letter that i recived from the homeoffice when i imported a mc51 in may of this year ,that stated that i had a valid defence for importing RIFs, to wolf armourys today, to be told that they would only sell me an aeg after they grafitti it first. which is fine, because its there company and have the right to impose the rules that they like.

but, before i order the rifle i want from china (again), can anyone tell me how easy it would be to take the paint off of the rifle if i did buy it from wolf amourys?

thanks in advance

:?)

The easiest way would be to respray black.

What is the part of the story you are missing out? if you have a valid defence why are wolf 2 toning it.

If they are being assholes then take your business elsewhere but I feel there is something your not telling.

i'm only leaving out the boring bits, e.g. the details of my defence etc.
i thought that they would except it, but they wouldn't even look at the letter, "not ukara, not interested" was the theame.

i thought i'd support a uk shop with my new found wealth, but i'm not interested in paying more AND having to spend the extra time repainting it aswell.

it's all ok though, like i said, it's there bussiness and they have the right to run it as they see fit. and i want emphisise that i'm not posting to complain about anything.

i shall import it instead, no problems.

thank you for the info :?)

Well
What is your defence?
Reanactor or skirmisher
They are the only ones I can think of
There must be a reason for them to completely dismiss you

the defence i give to the customs is that i'm an amateur filmmaker and that i'm a 38 year old teacher, which is enuff for them to let me import whatever i like in RIF's.

but the reason for wolf amouries two tone decision had nothing to do with my defence because i didn't get as far to tell them the reason and they wouldn't look at the letter."

"but i ..."
"we'll have to paint it first"
"if you..."
"we'll have to paint it first"

kind of thing
:?)

If your legal and have a homeoffice letter stating your defence, then it's their loss.

Still, it's better for airsoft in general for retailers to be cautious than just sell to anyone but it sucks for those who are legit.

No they don't.

Every retailer makes a choice as to how they wish to stay within the law. That's their choice, nobody else's.

As a retailer (UKARA Registered) we sell to anybody who can prove a valid defence we can audit and follow with a paper trail. The easiest way is through checking the UKARA data base or our own site data base, but we can choose whatever method we like to verify a sale. We regularly sell to re-enactors and the film industry.

There are no restrictions imposed by UKARA on registered retailers saying they can only sell to people on the UARA database.

I know this is the wrong place, but, I'm also an amateur filmmaker, could you outline how you got the defence from the home office please?

Thanks
