  1. Thanks Chris. I've had a quote via Parcel2Go from YODEL. What would you identify the package as? Luke
  2. TNT only ship business to business. They recommended a residential courier, back to square one.
  3. Thanks for the replies, its going to the Midlands so should be ok. I'll will inform the courier what they are, (deactivated ww2 guns?) Luke
  4. Thanks for the quick reply Tony, Lots of cardboard and duck tape it is, Good to hear TNT are sensible, just a thought, should the package be marked against air travel? Luke
  5. I have some bits to sell, and the chap wants them posted, just wondering if anybody has any recommendations for a courier? Also how should I go about packing them? Its a Bren and an SMLE. Thanks, Luke
  6. Thanks for that, exactly what I was hoping for! Looks like a trip to France may be on the cards. Cheers, Luke
  7. Hello, We have located a Dodge in Normandy for sale at a dealers, its registered in France and is roadworthy, the problem is I can't find any concrete information on possible Import Duty or VAT once entering the UK. Has anyone else done this before and what did you encounter, we are going to ring the DVLA/HMRC and see what they say, but I'm not expecting them to be very helpful. Many Thanks, Luke

    Wow! No time wasted there! What sort of state are they in? Any chance of some piccies?
  11. Thanks for the help Tony, I think I'll scrap this idea, and continue collecting deact's instead, much easier and less hassle..... Luke
  12. 23. Section 38 defines a 'realistic imitation firearm' as an imitation firearm which has an appearance that is so realistic as to make it indistinguishable, for all practical purposes, from a real firearm. 'Imitation firearm' is defined in section 57(4) of the Firearms 1968 as 'any thing which has the appearance of being a firearm...whether or not it is capable of discharging any shot, bullet or other missile'. The term 'real firearm' is defined in section 38(7) as either a firearm of an actual make or model of a modern firearm, or a generic modern firearm. The term 'modern firearm' is defined in subsection 8 as a firearm other than one whose appearance would tend to identify it as having a design and mechanism of a sort first dating before 1870. The effect of this definition is that realistic imitations of pre-1870 firearms are not caught by the new offence Source http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/about-us/home-office-circulars/circulars-2007/031-2007/ Thats my interpretation of it anyway........
  13. Hi chaps, I would like to get a replica of the revolver used by Clint Eastwood in 'For a Few Dollars More', after some research I've discovered I'm after a Colt Single Action Army 5 1/2" Artillery model. Ideally I'd like it to have the Scorpion grips as seen in the film. If anyone has any links or knows where I can find one it would be much appreciated. I've also been reading that because the original design of the revolver is pre 1870, the replica can be owned without membership of a reenactment group. Could anyone clarify this? Many Thanks, Luke
  14. The USS Oriskany I believe. http://www.navy.mil/search/display.asp?story_id=23692 At least the structure isn't being cut up in a Chinese scrapyard.
