Does anyone have experience buying a pal rated airgun from the UK? I missed out on a used fwb 300s recently prompting me to search for another source. Availability seems much higher in the UK. They just are near impossible to find here and snapped up immediately when available.

Further to post:

Does anyone have any experience buying non-PAL BB Rifles from UK or Europe. Was thinking of buying a new CO2 BB Rifle that is not sold in North America. And any guess on what shipping would be.

If I am successful, I will post pictures & review. I think a lot of readers will be impressed.

Thanks

I have brought pistols in from the UK. Royal Mail does not allow airguns to ship to Canada.
Some German dealers ship to Canada.

Might you have the name & website address for an airgun store in Germany that sells Umarex products and will ship to Canada?

If I were you, I'd call Sandwell Field Sports. I did a few years back and asked Tony if he would/could do a 2nd or 3rd level tune on my HW97. He said he'd
be glad to, but if would be Illegal for him to send it back to me. Perhaps from private citizens or other businesses, no probl- but I would not bet on it.
Just rethinking the call - think maybe i e-mailed Tony.

It's unfortunate that they cannot mail to their own colony. It's bad enough we have to deal with our own regulation nonsense.

That is Royal Mail's doing.They carry airguns in the UK, but wont ship internationally.
