As above has anyone heard if the ban is going to be lifted soon or is it a permanent thing ?????
It's not a ban as such - an interpretation of the position of where they sit on frangibility.
Ukpsf have not banned first strike, but given a position on how they feel 'shaped rounds' may sit. If you go to an ukpsf site then expect first strike to not be permitted. It does not prevent other sites from permitting first strike so you may find them permitted
Unless they get tested in a manner that places them as frangible or non frangible then expect no change, or at some point in the future when firearms laws get reviewed (it's been highlighted by the home office about reviewing all related legislation) at which point frangibility and lethality would get looked
Sure there was something posted on fb. By ukpsf last week. Will try a find link.
I've not seen anything recently from ukpsf, but in the U.S. there was testing recently. This relates to a separate first strike issue due to exclusion of first strike by an insurer due to not being a paintball (not a sphere)
The testing undertaken is with regard to force & impact and the potential to submit for Astm standards to be redefined to not require a sphere

any more on this
Yes, the testing took place and First Strikes were certified as frangible
Fs are one of the reasons i prefer magfed
