.209 blanks by post, best prices?

Recommended Posts

Curiously, none of my local airsoft or guns-and-tackle shops stock .209 shotshell primers, and my local site is out of them as well (problems with their supplier, sinister music plays), so I might have to buy by post.

 

Land Warrior: £8 a box + £6 postage.

JD Airsoft: £6 a box + £10 postage

 

Anyone know of any better deals at the moment?

JD Airsoft do much cheaper posting or they used to if you check UPS collection thingy

 

Basically they did real cheap almost free ship to a local shop or shipping agent near you

JD are about the cheapest - or used to be for the .209 or 6mm blank thingys

 

How could you miss it - says it straight away on main page....

might have to have a min spend or blanks might be excluded

but they offer free shipping

Ah, I should have mentioned, JD won't sent primers via the free UPS collection, or I'd have got some along with my TRMR last week.

 

I'd reckoned I could just pick some up at my local site in Sunday, but it was a sad day: only pew-pew and no boom-boom.

Try giving these guys a call. They're local to me and I paid about £2.50 a box of 100 Chedites.

They may post as they're a little mom and pop store.

F*ck me that is cheap - below discounted bulk pricing stuff

I looked at some places in past £30 for 1,000 - but wtf would use that amount ???

I got the impression some might get picky to sell these without license n stuff

plus sod buying in bulk...

Provisionally the winner, great spot.  They have no prohibition on sending via UPS collection (my favourite method), and came to £14.88 for 200 primers + posting, and even took PayPal (my other favourite method).

 

We'll see if they fulfil the order, but that's looking good so far.  Cheers.

Oh for... me and my short attention span.  By the time I'd filled in all the ordering bumph I'd conveniently forgotten that.  I see an active PayPal button, I click on it.  So as it turns out, it can be purchased through PayPal, although now we're off the map.

 

Thanks for pointing that out, I've fessed up to Airsoftworld.  It wouldn't surprise me to find out that they can't do a UPS pick-up delivery either, same as JD Airsoft.

 

I just want to make things go bang, is that so much to ask? :(

wait until you try to pop in a new 6mm blanky in ya BFG with thick gloves on

them sods are quite small compared to 9mm blanks

I didn't notice the 9mm blanks that much louder - yes a little louder but not a great deal

But them 209's are so damn titchy by comparison - quite a boom for something so small

wait until near zero temps, thick gloves and try to pop in a new primer mid-game

 

You think this stuff is bad - Zero One made me fill in a form, scan & email it back to them

Even though they had my UKARA proving I was 18 & defense etc....

nope still had to fill out a form to purchase a Timed Dynatec BFG

not blanks - just the friggin' BFG device itself - I kid you not

 

Ahhh well - I'm sure you will get the stuff eventually

Sorry they were more expensive... £2.60. I recall needing more than a tenner for 4 packs :D

Huh, JD Airsoft only cared that I was over 18 when I bought my TRMR - I even called to ask.

 

Well, I can report that Airsoftworld.net have a great support ticket system that's allocated me an issue number and they got back to me this morning to say (paraphrased) "Whatchyo talkin' 'bout, Roger?"

 

So, they didn't know that I wasn't supposed to use PayPal - I feel better about missing it.  Let's see what we see.

 

[UPDATE]

Airsoftworld.net reckon it's fine and will be processed as normal, so woo, and also, hoo.

 

[UPDATE 2]

All arrived safely.
