    Airguns can be shipped by plane, but perhaps Parcel Force are not able to.

    I don't know who can ship them international though :(

    do any of the airgun manufacturers frequent the site...if you were to order say a brand new ev2 from airarms how would they get it to you....also kzozee may know a carrier as he has bought a few rifles and had them shipped......

    I had the same experience with Parcel Force to send an airgun from UK to Hungary.They did not deliver it via airmail, but on road...

    You have to use a pacel service, eg. TNT or DHL...Or you can try this: http://www.interlinkdirect.co.uk

    For starters Parcel Force is account holders only and RFD to RFD, same with TNT.

    Afraid only way of getting that back is fly over with relevant paperwork or pay big time for someone to handle the export, there are many perhaps the closest is H&H or Purdey they do it regular.
    Dont be surprised if the quotes far exceed the price of a new gun.
