As long as they stay under the 6FPE limit they are allowed (according to the Home Office, the CPS and ACPO).
If they venture above the 6FPE limit they become Section 5 prohibited weapons. That is the same for any pistol.
AMTA are just being stupid in the extreme ignoring the advice of the above mentioned bodies. Perhaps it's got something to do with only the "Foreign" manufacturers make semi-auto airguns
