    Full auto isnt illegal, its frowned upon and not allowed at most sites but not illegal. A lot of aftermarket boards (Virtue, Tadao ect have a full auto option.) Even WDP who make the Angel (a british company) have full auto as standard on there A1 and A1 Fly boards.

    “While only the courts can offer a final ruling, it seems likely that a paintball gun capable of fully automatic or burst fire would count as a prohibited weapon under Section 5(1)(a) of the Firearms Act 1968. The maximum penalty for possessing such an item is ten years imprisonment. A circuit board or chip to allow fully automatic or burst fire would be a component part of such a weapon”.

    Further discussions this week and letters exchanged between the UKPSF and the Home Office have confirmed that Section 5(1)(a) prohibits any weapon, which discharges two or more missiles with one operation of the trigger.

    No court would class it as an illegal weapon as a paintball marker is not a firearm (so not covered by the firearms act) (also the Sentancing transition 2007-SI1324) changed the sentancing to 5 years for over 18's (minimum term 3 years) and young offenders for under 18's.

    The Firearms Acts 1968-97

    Airguns in the UK are subject to the firearms acts, under the Firearms (Dangerous air weapons) rules 1969 they are classified as low powered Air Weapons and as such they are restricted to a maximum power of 12 foot pounds force for a rifle and 6 foot pounds force for a pistol. Above 12ftlb a rifle is classified as a Section 1 Firearm and requires a licence called a firearms certificate, and a pistol above 6ftlb is again a Section 1 Firearm requiring a firearms certificate in the UK.
    The definition of a firearm under the act is "a lethal barrelled weapon of any description from which any shot, bullet or other missile can be discharged" it further defines "lethal weapon" as "a weapon capable of firing a projectile with sufficient force to inflict more than a trivial injury i.e. with sufficient force to puncture skin".
    The Home Office consider the lowest level of muzzle energy capable of inflicting a penetrating wound is one foot pound (1.35 joules) hence guns producing less than 1ft/lb are not covered by the act and therefore not classified as air weapons or subject to any restrictions.
    The 1997 Firearms Amendment Act made handguns illegal in the UK but Air Weapons were excluded under Section 5 (1) subsection (aba) "a prohibited weapon includes a firearm with a barrel length less than 30cms and an overall length less than 60cms, other than an air weapon, a muzzle loading gun, or a firearm designed as signalling apparatus".

    Paintball guns strictly come under the definition of the licensed air guns section, but due to the fact they shoot non-damaging projectiles with insufficient force we scrape through the act untouched.

    As for legality of firemodes:
    There is no UK law that covers this. All of the firemodes we use are 'assisted', so 'semi', ramping, fully auto etc etc are all equal in the eyes of the law.

    Thanks too all the people who went to the effort of writing it and allowing me to steal it

    i know were to go now if i need legal advice


    This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than any enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me.
