BASC asked the question and this is the answer.
The Home Office have consulted ACPO and the Crown Prosecution Service about the legal status of these
weapons and have agreed, in the absence of a court ruling, that the issue should be resolved formally at the next

should continue to be regarded as falling outside the certification process provided that they are low powered
and do not fall within the Firearms (Dangerous Air Weapons) Rules 1969.
