    Abstract

    This specification covers low energy air guns (LEAG), commonly referred to as airsoft guns, air soft guns, or soft air guns, or any combination thereof, which propel a low energy air gun projectile. Non-powder guns, paintball markers, toy products, non-recreational guns such as those used by law enforcement, scientific, or military agencies are not covered by this specification. The appropriate warnings and instructions that are to be provided for literature, labels, packages, and procedures for safe use of low energy air guns are addressed in this specification. Literature shall be provided with each low energy air gun and shall include, as applicable, the prescribed instructions and cautionary statements. Packaging shall be labeled in a prominent and conspicuous manner as prescribed. Safety disclaimers shall not be used which dilute or negate the effectiveness of the warnings provided for in these instructions, labeling, and marking requirements.
