    Pretty good. I wonder how the actual UK price will differ?

    Don't they need an export license for rifles over 7.5gl ?

    ... its all kosher "Free Movement of Goods between EEC" ; Its definitely not an overnight webshop outfit sprung out of nowhere & gone tomorrow. Super professional , and trustworthy as one would expect from a Gold Medal Olympic champ. After all, Its his reputation on the line. I bought 5 X Cz barrels, they did all the paperwork only for CZ customs on their side - was I involved ? nope. Hassle free ? yes.

    Only when ordering an air rifle from Germany, do you need to send a copy of your passport to the retail shop; again, no big deal.

    To purchase a rifle exceeding 7.5g the seller has to apply for an export license,same with scopes too,this is what i've been told by benke_sport.

    Benke Sport Germany, may or may not have the docs. or "export" set up in place, like the other BIGGER German retailers...dunno...never actually bought a 16J rifle from a German retailer. 7.5J air rifles ? Yes, plenty of times.
    Parts ? yes, bought a Walther 16J reg. from Schneider sport, no hassle, no issue of "EWB" or German export license etc...

    The important point though.... is Benke telling you he cant be bothered ? if he is keen to get you as a customer - whats the real issue ?...is he hinting at extra costs for the bureaucratic paperwork ?

    Would help, if you could ask him away.....I always ask any Euro seller, a million questions...once all the communication is clear & info. is in hand, you then decide whether to go ahead with your purchase. This has always worked for me 100% of the time.

    UK Dealer price - £1,699

    Why should you have to pay approx. 32% more to support your local Dealer?
