Proper air rifles require a licence the same as any other firearm. There used to be a gun shop right close to the original Bangkok Bank on Petchkasem Rd.

I am aware of the law so the rifle will belong to my wife. Just need to know where air rifles are sold at present.

The Junta banned all privately owned firearms a couple of years a go but I don't know if that measure was ever rescinded.

I don't think that is correct!

Back in 2015 the Junta announced that all privately owned firearms had to be surrendered but I don't know if it was ever enforced in any way.

No, never enforced. I believe there was a restriction on some large calibre centre-fire rifles that could have been considered "war weapons", but that has apparently been rescinded.
