posting air guns

Recommended Posts

as the law on posting air guns changed recently ? the reason I ask is I was wanting to get a gun for my grandson but the dealer told me he could not post an airgun  since the law changed about a year ago ! T.I.A.

hello, i am sure he can send to a local RFD when they reopen, but that would add around £50 extra, second hand can be sent parcel force 48 Hour, what air rifle are you wishing to buy ?

A gunshop selling an air rifle has to send it to a rfd.

A private seller can send an air rifle by PF48

You can buy a new gun from a gunshop in the EU and have it posted to your front door - isn't the VCR  ACT great 😒

What he said.

RFD sales MUST be face to face either in the RFD's own shop or via another RFD like a "click and collect" as it were.

Private seller to private buyer Parcelforce 48, it must be declared, it must be labelled "Delivery Exception - Addressee ONLY - Do Not Leave With Neighbour"

What springer was you looking at ? 

There's a few eu shops that will deliver quicker than buying from the UK and cheaper

Search the sales sites i.e. Gunwatch, Guntrader etc and buy used from a private seller - PF 48 is around £15 - I have bought/sold many guns this way and only ever had one turn up "not as described" and even then the seller refunded me. Look for something like the HW30 or Original 25.

hello, ok in that case i would suggest a HW  35S or you can get a HW 99 S for about £200, i have had quite a few cheap springers until i bought a HW 95 K there is no comparison,

Hi OPP, no it’s not been tuned but It’s only been used lightly, not even had a whole tin of pellets through it. 

£150?

Also potentially interested in a price, SWS is a German seller often mentioned...
