@Druid799 Hahha terrible 😂

 

For example, P226 WE. Patrolbase : 99.94£ ( discount of January included ) and KYAirsoft : 86.78£. 

Okay, not sensational but on an bigger order, it can make a fuckin' big diffrence.

 

A little less uptight now ? 🤣

 

@emilianoksa So kind 😂

I would be interested in knowing a list of reliable  HK shops you have used.  I have used Ehobby, WGCshop, airsoftglobal and airsoft.tiger111hk and have had good results for parts I can not find in the UK and Europe.

 Is there a big difference in postage costs to France than the UK ?

reason I ask is on a pistol from HK I’d be surprised if it’s under £25 (we put the currency symbol BEFORE the number , bloody continentals! 🤦‍♂️) so would more than cancel out any savings . 👍

It's cheaper on KYAirsoft for France. All shops have different costs and i don't know why...

 

Note Example was for UK shipping.

 

Other example : TM USP GBB on Rainbow8, £20 to your door.

Other problem we have over here is the Gov approved carrier Parcelforce will intercept any international mail , work out if there’s any import duty on it AND with out your consent pay it and then charge you £13 for doing it ! So you have to pay this on top of how ever much the vat was . You could try and contest it but it’s just not worth the hassle .😡

Parcelforce is a private shipper ?

Hi

 

It is.

 

It is part of Royal Mail, which was orginally a state enterprise that was privatized a few years ago, though the government retained shared in it until relatively recently.

Are all international parcels relayed to customs ?

No, but something as big as a RIF in a box is more likely to get picked up than something small.  If you search the forum you can find differing experiences.

KYairsoft; I've used them before and they were find but the postage is on the expensive side. Plus as others have said once Customs add to it and the parcel delivery company chuck their extra on it starts to be just as expensive as here (generally).

 

Still somethings are still worth it because of the low price (of some Rifs like WE Apaches for example) or just because you don't see the specific model stocked over here (never see OD WE Glocks).

 

The main bummer with KY (lol... bum lube pun) is they have all the spare parts on tap but the postage makes it not worth it for small items, only rifs.

 

I'm naming WE products as examples as that is what they specialise in for anyone that doesn't know them.

Thats pretty much the only ones I would trust bar Airsoftglobal as never used them.  1. WGC 2. Ehobby 3. Tiger in that order.

I’ve now attempted 4 or 5 orders from Airsofttigger111hk... I’ve had 1 thing delivered successfully, one eventually arrived after I had an argument with them because it was in stock, then it wasn’t and then when I put a claim in it became magically in stock again.. and 3 I’ve cancelled because they messaged days later saying they didn’t actually have what I gotta wanted.

 

WGC is fantastic. Ordered 3 times with no issue. 

 

Ehobby I think  ive ordered once with no issue. 

 

No idea about the others

Tiger you need to email beforehand and make sure they have stock otherwise I have had no issues from them.  WGC are excellent.  Shame their shop was closed when I was in HK.
