Hire Purchase: If you are looking to get yourself onto the UKARA database and want to buy a gun without having it two-toned, Wolf offers a Hire-Purchase scheme. When you buy a gun from us under this scheme, we will hold the gun on our premises and bring it along to the skirmish site for you each time you pre-book to play. Then, when you have reached the criteria for your UKARA registration, you can simply take the gun home with you. This will save you having to pay the gun hire each time you play saving up to £75.
Due to the limited spaces & processing time, the cut off times for pre booking are up until the following times on the day of the skirmish :
Internet booking: 10:00am
Phone booking: 12:00pm
You can still pre book after those times but £5.00 pre booking discount will no longer apply.
Wolf Showroom opening times on Skirmish Sat/ Mon: 11:00am-5:30pm
Unlike paintball where you will need to buy extra ammo, equipment rental comes with 3000 rounds of ammo so it is unlikely you will need to buy any extra.
Site Power Limit 1 Joule (equivalent to 328fps with a 0.2g BB). All guns will be chronograph tested prior to games. Any gun firing above 328fps (+/- 2%) will not be allowed.
Ammo Limit: There is an ammo limit of 600 rounds which is in place to ensure fluid game play.
Please note: No drum magazines will be permitted. Support weapons such as M249 machine guns can only be used with regular hi-cap magazines.
Face Protection: Full face protection is compulsory for insurance reasons and are available for hire for £2.
Pyrotechnics: Due to the confined spaces of the skirmish facility, pyrotechnics are currently prohibited oweing to excessive smoke retention and undesirable sound amplification.
Age Limit: There is a minimum age of 12 at this site, providing the minor is accompanied by an adult over the age of 18, and a consent form has been signed (available on site).
Photography: Occasionally, Bunker 51 has photographers in operation. By making your booking, you agree to be included in such photographs
