Apologies, I should have explained what I meant by "ban".

I don't mean passing legislation to make them illegal.

I meant a ban by shooting organisations or clubs where someone turns up with a non-standard cylinder and is asked to leave (in the same way as if they had an over power gun), if they cannot provide satisfactory evidence on its safety. I have heard rumour that this has already happened somewhere?

Yes, I realise there could be some other component that's been fiddled with and renders the gun dangerous but I think if that too were obvious to the organiser/club they would have words with the shooter?

If all clubs/organisations/airgunners are happy to have any Heath Robinson airgun turn up, so be it. I'll keep a closer look out!
