As it is 2016, senate bill 199 is soon to come into effect. This causes a number of changes to the airsoft industry in a number of states, such as California and New York. The most notable change for thoseĀ in these states is that airsoft guns will now come shipped with florescent tape on certain parts of the airsoft gun. Those living in other states (not effected by SB199) will see no change to their airsoft gun’s appearance. Refer to the image below to see a visual representation of how the appearance of airsoft guns will change in certain states.

 

Senate Bill No. 199 / Section 4.4:

(B) If the airsoft gun is configured as a rifle or long gun, in addition to the blaze orange ring on the barrel required by federal law, the airsoft gun has a trigger guard that has fluorescent coloration over the entire guard, and there is a two centimeter wide adhesive band with fluorescent colouring around the circumference of any two of the following:
