It's very dangerous to keep a replica with blanks since in case you are in a situation of self defence the other person may assume it's a real one and act accordingly and your response can only be noise.

Most gun shops have replicas. They are manufactured by the same companies which make the real ones. Looks and feels like the real guns and fires blanks as well.
Cost 50K+. Used mainly for movie shoots.

You can try indiansforguns.com. I am not sure whether you will get a full list but you can get some pointers.

Hi guys,

Need your advise on buying a air gun. I'm in Saudi and would like to buy a good brand and take it back to Kerala with me (by sea cargo). Can you please give me your advise on my below queries?:

1. Which is the best brand?
2. Which model (spring type or pneumatic pump)
3. Which caliber (0.177 or .22)
4. I do understand that 0.22 need a license to use now in India, any issue if I import it?

Appreciate the experts advise.

Thanks

There are many options that you can explore but my advise would be
1) Benjamin Marauder
2) FX - Dream Line Classic or Field target

.22 or .25 are any way the best, but with rules unclear it is better to go for .177. Pneumatic any day.

You can have .177 and there are module s you can change bore to .22

How do you plan to get it?
If you have to pass Customs then you have to be a part of govt approved Shooting club (sports), with the club ID and a letter you are allowed to get .17, but as always it is very unclear.


Note from Support: Please avoid double spacing. Messes with the post formatting.
