SPS was founded as Arms manufacturers in 1996.
After 15 years in the market of High Competition Pistols, continuing with the effort to improve, they introduced their new Range of Pistols with attractive design, combining the best hard chrome in black and silver treatment, as well as customised fitting.
They take advantage of the latest technologies of our CNC machines enabling them to make high quality Frames, Slides, Barrels, and other spare parts.
SPS pistols are originally designed for speed shooting but RWA have taken it a step towards airsoft, allowing airsofters to use it for both IPSC and regular skirmish games. The design is rather similar to the Recon version with SPS markings, serial numbers (which Spain need on each pistol) SPS grip panels and hammer. The trigger now has a slight groove making it a little lighter than its older brother, the Recon. The outer barrel is much lighter and is now chrome which is very beautiful against the black.
It is powered by CO2 and delivers a very strong recoil kick as well as very effective power of 400fps on 0.2g BB's and the performance is stable and effective even in cold weather. It also offers an accessory rail system for attaching flashlights and lasers for tactical use. Something you don't see on the real steel SPS pistol, but this is Airsoft and it is always handy to have extra accessories.
It does replicate a real single stack 1911 with the same dimensions, functional features, field stripping and shooting mechanics. It is designed to deliver solid performance at an affordable price. Removable and re-loadable full size 17 round magazine means you can also practice fast reloads using the realistic slide lock feature.
Extra magazines are sold separately.
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.
