Due to UK laws all transactions involving firearms and air rifles/pistols (and certain smaller components) have to be conducted on a face-to-face basis. This can make it extremely difficult to buy or sell items across the country.
Secure Transport Solution:
We are able to offer a delivery and collection service for firearms and controlled components through our Dealer Account with Parcel Force. If you bring in or want to collect a firearm, air gun or component make sure you bring your FAC or other authority to possess and photo ID.
When buying or selling a firearm or other item that needs to get listed on the FAC of the buyer, the seller must fill out the table on the buyer's FAC and both buyer and seller should inform their respective licensing authorities. This is a condition usually listed on the buyer's FAC. The correctly filled out FAC will be sent back to the buyer separately from the item bought and will be presented to the dealer when it is time to collect the firearm. It is NOT the dealer's job to fill out the sale details or inform the licensing departments, only to complete their register as usual and check the details match the transaction.
For sending: Once we have received the item we will check it in. We will then package and arrange collection by the courier who will deliver within the next 24/48 hours depending upon the service used. This service costs £25 (plus VAT) per inland shipment with certain surcharges for remote areas and extra insurance should you so wish.
For receiving: Let us know you want to receive an item, the sender will need a copy of the RFD. Collection/Delivery day can then be arranged and the item shipped to us. When it is received you will need to bring your completed FAC along to the workshop and collect your items. We don't charge Skill At Arms members for this service and any costs will be at the sender's end unless we are asked to arrange collection and shipping (costs as for sending).
