I had considered that there was a certain element of that, but I don't believe it's more than a happy side effect for him.
If that was his primary aim, he would get far more efficent results talking directly to a UK paintball supplier over me.
And I don't think his market is going to be so pressed that he's dependent on the UK paintball market for everything to work out. I'm sure there are some people over here who'll want one, but I don't imagine Solar will be that short on US buyers.
However, if that's your concern - there is a way to check.
Surely all the testing that has to be done has been done....
Ah, misunderstanding, what I didn't add was a section from a later PM:
Solar wrote:Regarding testing... basic function, improvements, technical data such as flow improvements, ballistics.... the works. I am very busy working on new things at the same time trying to make this launcher a showpiece for some demonstrations.
In other words, it's not about simple testing, it's about my ideas for further developments and improvement.

Under UK law, even in the case that they should stop it, it's never been in my possession, which means they couldn't touch me with any charges.
This would apply even if I tried importing a Section 5 (like a full auto, pistol or rocket launcher - all illegal even with a licence).
Obviously, I don't want that to happen, and will specifically try to avoid it, but if I thought I would have to import it illegally, I wouldn't be having this topic, because it would be dishonest to pretend to Solar that it was possible.
This whole topic is about me finding/checking legal ways to do it.

If not told the bore, they'll look at it and think "It's about that sort of size".
Might call for it specifically being marked as 39mm.
