Carefully observers or people looking for replicas could notice a significant drop in ads with replicas and accessories on the popular (in Poland) OLX sales platform. Unfortunately, this fact did not hit only airsoft, but the entire shooting community. Along with the change of the service regulations of January 28, the items prohibited to be offered at the site were expanded with airsoft replicas and all accessories. The qualification of airsoft replicas as firearms is also disturbing. OLX itself, when asked about the situation and the reasons for such changes, replied with a quote from its regulations on prohibited items, point 32:
„Due to the regulatory changes that came into force on January 28, it is forbidden to offer firearms (and their essential parts) and ammunition on our website, including combat, hunting, sports, ASG (Air Soft Gun), gas, alarm and alarm weapons and signal.
It is also forbidden to offer firearms permanently deprived of functional features and gas throwers, including pepper spray, regardless of whether their possession or trade is restricted by law and whether or not a permit is required for their possession or trade (including air rifles).”
