Airsoft Laws in China?

Recommended Posts

minjunk

Hello everyone,

I am currently in China and want to play airsoft. I have been searching up laws regarding them, but have found some contradictions. Some sources say that all replicas of real-world guns are illegal, while an article from the SCMP in 2018 says that air guns are legal so long as their power doesn't exceed 1.8J. Can anyone provide some clarification? Also, though not related, is owning a paintball gun also illegal? Thank you!

I would not try bringing one through security at the airport. The big signs listing forbidden items always include "replicas of firearms" and specifically forbid pellet guns. 

 

I will be at the airport this afternoon. If circumstances permit, I'll snap a photo of the "forbidden items" sign so you can take a closer look. I cannot remember if it bans paintball guns by name and airsoft guns by name. 

 

Pretty sure that is a "no photos" zone, so cannot promise 100% to be able to accomplish the mission.

Wiki makes it sound like you're out of luck. 

 

You could take a look at 激光搏击 - no ban on laser guns. Pew pew.
