Putting tape on the guns ruins it

The guns must be sprayed at least 51% bright colours unless the player has a UKARA license which allows guns to be bought 100% black. If your interested look up the vcra defense act.

It is in England because of the firearm ban. Its some like the gun has to be 30%-50% blazed to signify its a replica. these ones were painted over because the owner has a air soft license. we didnt, so we taped them up.

That's to show they're fake. It's endorsed by law.

Oh, well that seems smart I guess.

In the united states, or at least in California it isn't enforced.

Although I have seen many airsoft videos from scotland, they almost always don't have orange tips or tape.

No it's not.

Orange-tipped airsoft gun muzzles[edit]
Although airsoft guns in the United States are generally sold with a 6mm (0.24in.) or longer orange tip on the barrel in order to distinguish them from real firearms, this is not in fact required by federal law. Manufacturers and importers may cite Title 15 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which stipulates that "no person shall manufacture, enter into commerce, ship, transport, or receive any toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm" without approved markings; these may include an orange tip, orange barrel plug, brightly colored exterior of the whole toy, or transparent construction (part 272.2, formerly part 1150.2). However, section 272.1 (formerly 1150.1) clearly indicates that these restrictions shall not apply to "traditional b-b, paint-ball, or pellet-firing air guns that expel a projectile through the force of compressed air, compressed gas or mechanical spring action, or any combination thereof." [12] This language clearly exempts airsoft guns from these requirements, placing them in the same category as bb-guns, pellet, air, and paintball, none of which are conventionally sold or used with an orange tip, and many of which bear as much resemblance to real firearms as airsoft guns do.

Also the fact that in the UK, the police will respond with Special Weapons to anything that REMOTELY looks like a gun. I'd imagine seeing four guys with masks and realistic looking weapons would fairly warrant sending in the SWAT.
