I have a Whiscombe trade going if only I can figure out how to get my JW80
to him and his JW back to me. Of course we will be happy to cover expenses
etc. My rifle has the restrictor in it and thus legal to own in UK. We just have not
been able to connect up how to do it via carriers. If you can help, please email me
directly. Hot to get this deal done. Thanks Fred

Not sure if the UK Post Office can handle his back.

But you might want to call at your local post office to enquire.

With ANY carrier: good packing, good insurance and tracking are of primary importance.

Life might be easier if you take the action off the stock and pack them real well.

JMHO

it goes against their charter.

They can refuse to ship pistols, but not rifles.

It's in their charter to ship long guns of ANY persuasion. If they refuse, you can get them in trouble.

Well . . . . . perhaps not in California.

It's nice to be in CT. LOL!

I've shipped rifles UPS, nationally as well as internationally. But I have mostly used USPS for the International stuff.

You NEED TO KNOW the rules of the receiving nation, like Canada or UK and you will be asked for paperwork. But I have had good luck and good service from the USPS.

As the commercials say: "Your mileage may vary depending on your driving habits and location of residence"
