Sell it and get the real deal that would require registering it. Air soft guns can be a danger because of ignorant people seeing someone with one and think they are REAL.

IMO the role of airsoft is for inexpensive training, but an AR22 IIRC is about the same price and would actually be somewhat effective if shooting started.

Hold on, 1200FPS from an airsoft gun?! That's supersonic! With plastic pellet?? What the heck are you using to power that thing? I thought they topped out at a few hundred FPS max. That's pushing high-velocity pellet gun speeds there.

Either way, you'll need to review the laws in the city/county you live in, since different places in the state have different rules. What I can tell you though is most cities in and around the Portland area make it illegal to shoot any of the following inside their limits: airsoft, bb, pellet, slingshot, bow and arrow, guns, etc. In other words, if it shoots anything, and you might enjoy it, the a-holes in charge have a law against it. Do some searching online (because I doubt anyone here has the exact reference) for the city and county in which you live and check before you shoot - just to be on the safe side.

B.S.there is no way you can convert a air soft gun to a real gun the Mag well if different the barrels have no riffling and are usually in two parts the lower is milled for a electric motor but they do look real I agree with that I have 8 airsoft guns they are all real looking here is a picture of my glock 22 and a picture of my glock air soft gun the top one is real gun

By the way the OP said his air soft gun fire's 1200 feet per second lol I have never seen a airsoft gun fire that fast without modified and even then I never saw one fire 1200 fps I have seen 850 on some sniper rifles but that's it

Yeah, I missed that the first time through. I've seen air rifles that will do 1200, but as far as I know Airsoft isn't going to do that kind of speed.

Hey @Vasylvasylenko, tell us about your airsoft rifle! Got pictures?

When I play air soft they have rules you sniper rifle can not shoot more than 800fps and you can not use it to shoot someone unless they are 35 yards from you and your pistol or your full auto rifle can not fire more than 350 fps even at 350 fps at 15 yards if you hit bare skin there bleeding lol
