Thanks for all the links. A lot of cool stuff there, but as far as pricing goes I didn't really find a deal as good as the first one I found. Like Darren says, I just needs some basic stuff to show off some muzzle flashes. They don't really need to last as I have no use for them once filming is done. Thanks!
Cheers for teh info arktic. I read into it further and any realist firearms already own are exempt. This is an insane law as I went on www.relics.org.uk and enquired and they would cover the guns in a pvc coating that can be easily stripped off. But if the laws still stand by peeling of this layer you are breaking the law as you have then have then created a realistic firearm.though by law wouldnt it have to be proven that you bought the gun after the law came into affect.I wanted a shotgun and was only going to use it on greenscreen but even if I built one backyard effects style that too would be illegal.and any short film with a gun that looked fake would look cheap.as for the laws stating you need to be a procction or film company. For hobbyists or people just starting out that would be almost impossible.
I never do, but then again, one of my crew is a cop
If you are on private property and these are prop guns and have notified the neigbors, I see no need to notify the police
