I have bought from them in the past and they are great to deal with. Always a fast reply to any e mails.

 

I did buy my ebr from them and found obw cheaper else where, but thats my fault. It did also have a faulty hop rubber but that was easy sorted as was changing barrel anyhow.

 

They have a great range of stuff.

I've had great service also, and whenever i have ordered ammo from them in the past it has always came in 1-2 days.

 

Great shop all-round really!

Actionhobbies are okay, I just think that they should offer a 2-tone service as I like the RiFs they sell. Wolfarmouries sell many of the AEGs Actionhobbies have on their site I like the look of, but I don't trust Wolf's VAT amount. VAT is 10% of the product's price, so for example, an SRC M16A3 should be sold for £164.98, not £179.99.

it was raised to 20% begining of last year actually

 

Yup - and it was 17.5% before that!

 

£149.99 plus 20% VAT is indeed £179.99

good as gold, nothing but praise, had a faulty battery problem with my good old cm16 raider, couldn't isolate whether it was battery, charger or motor, so they sent replacements for all three, for free!!!!

I bought my first and (so far) only gun from these guys last September, the chap who runs it (Paul I think his name is) was as knowledgeable as they come, in my opinion, couldn't do enough for me and was very friendly/polite ... advised me not to buy a more expensive gun too, so it didn't seem just about making profit.

 

Really like this place, recommended if you live near. It's 4o mins from me but they're so good I'm prepared to travel.

I took my spare parts gun to their shop in MK last week and got what I hope is good advice. well the majority of the advice given tallied up with what I've read about hi speed and the rest just made sense. They have got virtually no stock in atm due to Christmas but I picked up a few bits and had a 2 hour chin-wag.
