In keeping with VORSKs desire to offer genuine alternatives to their customers – they have taken the popular EU Series and spun a “Tactical” offering as well as an eye-catching “Vented” option.
- Fibreoptic Sights / BDS Option
- Reduced Weight Slide (VENTED)
- Flared Magwell
- Extended Magazine Baseplate
- Fluted Outer Barrel
- Semi (EU17) or Fully Automatic (EU18)
All models are enhanced with design choices not found on standard EU series replicas.
Raised fibreoptic iron sights to improve target acquisition. VORSKs high-stipple polymer pistol grip ensures a firm grip on those wet and windy days, further improved by the flared magwell. The notch in the magwell flare along with extended magazine baseplates improve reload speeds and finally all models come fitted with a 12 mm CW to 14 mm CCW thread adapter hidden underneath a barrel flash hider/ cover.
The TACTICAL option features a full-weight Aluminium Alloy Slide that features deep-groove ridge cuts on the forward and rear slide sections to help improve slide grip when racking your first BB. Colour choices are more reserved for the TACTICAL options, with all of the furniture and frame remaining black when choosing different slide colours (excluding GOLD and CHROME that have their furniture in the same colour as the slide).
The VENTED slides distinctive forward vent ports give this EU platform its unique look. These “windows” look unto the fluted outer-barrel that is generally an alternative colour to the slide providing a truly different and eye-catching look. The vent ports also result in some slide weight-reduction which enhances the shooting experience as the recoil cycle is both faster and more “snappy” when compared to standard EU series GBB replicas. As mentioned above, the fluted outer barrel is often a chrome finish, along with the rest of the pistols frame mounted furniture that often results in a “triple-coloured” replica (eg. Tan, Black and Chrome) with some exceptions.
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.
