    If so, how did the transaction go ?
    Did you have to pay any duty at this end ?
    What did you actually buy ? as i understand some scopes are restricted.

    Only asking as I'm looking at buying a new scope and from these guys it's cheaper even if you get stung by customs duty etc.

    Yes, but about 7 years ago, all went smoothly.

    Can't remember exactly, about £60 duty on the scope, I think it was a Weaver Grand Slam.

    Last month I purchased a Bushnell Elite from these guys http://www.opticsplanet.com/ All went smoothly, import duty and handling fee was £68. It still worked out a very decent saving on the UK price.

    I bought a Leupold competition 40x45 from Arcadian sales last year and 2 Nikons a few years back. All went very smooth, fast shipping. Had to pay import duties and handling fee, about 100 euro (say 80 GBP). This made the Comp scope still a few hundred cheaper compared to local prices.

    Yes, few years back I bought a bushnel. Went fine, although factor in all the extra charges.
