do people wielding force weapons count as pyskers?
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.
a marine with access to the space marine armoury could choose a pyschic weapon right?
i.e. captain from death watch kill team
If an Inquisitor is wielding a Force Weapon, he's a psyker, as he has to take psychic tests to use the Force Weapon.

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.
