IIRC Tanaka uses plastic frames so the Brocock scenario shouldn't be a problem.
Pity the fool that tries to fire real bullet from a plastic Tanaka
Maybe not against the spirit, but weren't Brococks banned because the ammunition contained the propellant and the projectile?
From January 20, 2004 it is an offence to manufacture, sell, purchase, transfer or acquire any air weapon using a self-contained gas cartridge system.
This will be the same (Marushin's shells won't as the gas just passes THROUGH the shell) and therefore, probably, illegal in the UK.
No-one ever suggested the law deals in reality, but in precision.
That said, this will basically be 1 shot micro M203 shells and I don't think they're illegal (not sure why they're not, though).
From a more pratical POV, imagine having to load BB and GAS for each and every shot? Not sure I see this as a step forward, personally.
