Airsoft: Tour of Duty - Airsoft Arms Fair


Well, here we are at the end of April and May is nearly upon us. With that in mind I thought I'd take the opportunity to plug this event again

AAF is an independent event for the Airsoft Community. Hosted this year just south of Birmingham at The Grange. All attendees will have their legal defence to purchase RIF's verified by us and be issued with a colour coded ticket that lets a retailer or private seller know if they are under 18 / over 18 / over 18 with a legal defence, thereby making the buying / selling experience as straight forward for everyone as possible. If you are intending to come to the event and have access to a legal defence other than UKARA membership please book early with full details of your defence to allow us time to verify it. We will only be able to verify UKARA membership on the day, not any other legal defence

This year the AAF is being held on Saturday, 21st May and it promises to be even bigger and better than last year's with more dealers in attendance and a special appearance from Pete Winner, a veteran of the SAS and a member of the team involved in the Iranian Embassy siege, who will be giving a talk and promoting his new book, signed copies of which are included in the price of the Premium Ticket Option

We are operating an e-ticket system this year please do not select a postage option

If you are wearing an AI patch on arrival at site you will receive a £1 refund back on your ticket price

There are 3 ticket times available for attendees;

10 am entry - SOLD OUT
10 am entry premium ticket - SOLD OUT

11.30 am entry click here to book - £5
11.30 am entry premium ticket click here to book - £13.99 (includes entry to the AAF, entry to the Iranian Embassy Siege Presentation and a signed copy of Soldier 'I')

1 pm entry click here to book - £3
1 pm entry premium ticket click here to book - £11.99 (includes entry to the AAF, entry to the Iranian Embassy Siege Presentation and a signed copy of Soldier 'I')

All ages are welcome, and there is no requirement to be UKARA registered to attend. However, without a legal defence you will not be able to purchase RIF's at the event. If you have a legal defence other than UKARA please ensure you contact us by phone or email with the details of your defence so that we can verify it. For example, if you are a member of an insured airsoft site that is not part of the UKARA scheme then provide us with the site's contact details so that we can contact them to verify that you are an airsofter

As already said, there will be even more dealers in attendance this year, including one or two big names. I've already purchased my ticket, but was a little slow off the mark so missed out on the 10.00am slot and had to settle for 11.30am. Last year's event was very well attended and it was good to see so many people supporting it. It would be great to see lots of people there this year, too

AAF is an event for Airsofters and people interested in the sport, giving them an opportunity to view a wide range of products all in one place, after all nothing beats being able to see an item for yourself. At the same time we offer the opportunity for sites and event organisers to tell you about what they have to offer, allowing you to book for a MilSim or FilmSim game and acquire everything you're missing from your loadout all at the same venue. We also offer the opportunity for private sellers to retail their second user equipment, excess guns and rare and unusual kit. Make sure to check these guys out as there's bound to be some incredible bargains

Hope to see you there and in the meantime, happy hunting!
