hello,

i noticed that airsoft guns are a fraction of the price of what we pay over here, is it reliable to buy from america and do you et your gun taken off you from customs if you buy from the states?

they are a fraction of the price OVER THERE.

once you have added extorionate shipping and customs charges, they are basically the same price anyway, but with a longer wait.

and there is a HIGH chance that you will never get your gun as customs like to sieze and destroy almost everything.

i totted up the cost of shipping and the gun i wont still a lot cheaper

so does customs and exports take your gun from you if they find it? do you actually know of anyone its happened to?

If you don't have a valid defence to prove that you are an airsoft skirmisher then you will never see the weapon.

 

You are also liable to taxed on the item, I can't remember price ranges, but it could easily be £30.

 

If you have a problem with the item it isn't really that easy to return either.. it's a lot easier to buy from within the UK.

you need a valid defence to bring it in.

ONLY UKARA registered players ever get by and even then they have a hassle.

 

make sure you tell customs about it before you bring it over, so they are expecting it
