The AAP01 Assassin, by Action Army, is a gas-powered ASG pistol replica made of durable polymer reinforced with glass fibre.
Metal parts of this weapon include the slide, external barrel, and magazine, along with a few other small details. The slide lock is constructed from steel.
The utilisation of polymer in the production of this epic airsoft pistol makes the AAP01 Assassin weigh a mere 380g without a magazine, which makes it one of the lightest pistols available on the airsoft market.
In our opinion, one of the biggest advantages of this pistol from Action Army is its compatibility with magazines intended for Glock pistol replicas. This makes it easy to get hold of spare mags, and even better if you happen to already own a glock replica.
The AAP01 is equipped with a standard 14 mm thread, which allows you to make use of the wide selection of airsoft silencers and compensators available here.
The AAP01 Assassin is a replica with an extraordinary appearance, a well thought out design and a perfectly executed build - it is light weight, low cost, good fun and reliable too!

To buy an airsoft weapon in the UK you must have a valid airsoft defence.
This is not a licence, it is basically just proof that you intend to buy an airsoft weapon for use in airsoft.
An airsoft defence could be a UKARA or membership with the British Airsoft Club, and various other forms of defence.
You can only obtain an airsoft defence once you are over the age of 18.
To get an airsoft defence the law is that you should play at least 3 games of airsoft, and that you must have been playing for at least two months.
You can still buy an airsoft gun without a defence, provided you are 18 or older. If you choose to do this we would, by law, two tone (paint in a bright colour) parts of your chosen weapon. This is because an airsoft gun is considered a RIF aka Realistic Imitation Firearm, because they are so close to the real steel, whereas when you paint parts of it in a bright colour it becomes an IF aka Imitation Firearm. The reason being that the bright colours make it look less realistic to the public, and therefor less likely to be mistaken as real, were it to be used for any other purpose than airsoft.
When you order a gun from us you will need to add your defence details in the comments section of the cart. If you do not have a defence you will need to write the colour that you wish to be used for two toning your airsoft weapon.
Here is what's stated in the VCRA (Violent Crime Reduction) Act:
For airsoft skirmishing, the Association of British Airsoft is putting in place arrangements to allow retailers to check that individual purchasers are members of a genuine skirmishing club or site. The key elements of these arrangements are:
1. new players must play at least 3 (three) times in a period of not less than two months before being offered membership
2. membership cards with a photograph and recognised format will be issued for production to retailers
3. A central database will be set up for retailers to cross-check a purchaser’s details
4. member’s entry on the database will be deleted if unused for 12 months.
The defence for airsoft skirmishing can apply to individual players because their purchase of realistic imitation firearms for this purpose is considered part of the “holding” of a skirmishing event.
