    Give us an example of a model wielding a Force Weapon that wouldn't? It's usually models such as Librarians, GK Grandmasters, Inquisitors.. who are all psykers.

    I believe only a model that IS a psyker can have a force weapon, as a psy test is needed to use it, therefore a non-psyker wouldn't do much good with one.
    Correct?

    so your saying any1 that can take a pyschic peice of equipment or powers counts as a pysker cuz inquisitors dont necessarily have to take a pyschic tool but does that mean there still pyschic?
    a marine with access to the space marine armoury could choose a pyschic weapon right?
    i.e. captain from death watch kill team

    To use the power of a Force Weapon, you have to be able to use psychic powers. A random Marine can't take a Force Weapon; in most cases, it'll have restrictions on who can take a certain item (such as a Force Weapon).

    If an Inquisitor is wielding a Force Weapon, he's a psyker, as he has to take psychic tests to use the Force Weapon.

    Just a note: even though Inquisitors don't have to take a psychic power, they are all psykers, which is listed in their profile in the Codex. And, like others have noted, I don't think there are any models that can take them who aren't psykers.

    Indeed. I have never seen a case where a model can take a Force Weapon when it is not a psyker. Thereby the question is moot unless the above consideration is excepted.

    The technical answer is, I supose no.

    Just because a model has a force weapon, doesn't mean he has to be a psyker. It is conceivable that in future rules, a non psyker would have the option to be equipped with a Force Weapon (Which he, of course, would be incapbable of using.) If you played with some weird house rule that allowed units to pick up gear dropped by the enemy, for example, this would be the ruling.

    The practical answer is that all models who have Force Weapons actually are psykers. Not because the Force Weapon a psyker, but because being a psyker is currently a pre-requisite for GW giving the model a Force Weapon.

    So practically speaking- if the model has a Force Weapon, he's a psyker. But not only because he has a Force Weapon!

    For all Joe Guardsman knows, his family heirloom sword might actually be a Force Weapon, but since he's not a psyker, it just functions as an ordinary sword.

    For a Force Weapon to count as a Force Weapon, the person weilding it, MUST be a Psyker.
