Not yet. Just shipped. They're a reliable company. Unlike UK customs...

Just a guess but I would think that there would be
a better chance of not getting it destroyed by customs Very Happy .

Considering you can legally buy CO2 pellet pistols built to exactly resemble real world handguns, not to mention deactivated handguns, I donít think they have a leg to stand on. Iím willing to take this to court. Crown if need be. I doubt CPS would view it as Ďin the public interestí anyway. Iím in little doubt that hundreds of BR blasters have been imported successfully into the UK (even with customs seeing them). Weíll see.

I donít doubt they donít have a leg to stand on, I just mean why is this less likely to be stopped by customs than one imported from HCG (USA) for example?

Itís a fair question. In my own experience my US imports are checked and duties applied 100% of the time. Via China/HK/Japan not so much.

I donít care. Bill me. Just let me have my property!

Be prepared to pay about £160 in import duty.

Also mine was sent by UPS and it was an absolute nightmare trying to arrange redelivery as we were both out on the three attempts they give you.

Worth it in the end though, it's a thing of beauty of course.

Hi Harry.

No worries. Cash waiting. Wonít give it a second thought (ďtake my money, already!Ē).

I got out of the collecting game ages ago, sold my CS&T and years later ran into a post on Twitter about the Tomen. Perfection. And hooked again!

Please tell me there isnít a near-perfect production Pulse Rifle out there or Iím stuffed!

I have to assume customs were okay with it?

I got mine direct from HCG but if it's coming in to the country from elsewhere then that's about the amount of import duty that will have to be paid. Sad

I'm astounded they still have stock. They had only six last week when I placed my order. It's been advertised in their newsletters and by third parties globally. Weird. Maybe it's a trust issue?

Without wishing to tempt fate, I'm hoping to pick it up at the ParcelFarce depot tomorrow. Five days from HK to buyer. Cool
