It is illegal to send them through the post but we can arrange for your order to be sent to your local RFD (for non-local customers) via a secure courier for you to collect. There will be a cost for this service.

If your order is or contains a Restricted Product, such as a Shotgun/Rifle, Silencer/Moderator or an Air Weapon (Including CO2 BB Guns), we will contact you via email before proceeding further.

All orders are processed on a queue-based basis so please do give our team the time to contact you and/or process your order.

Please note that due to UK Export Laws ALL Restricted Products are not available outside of the UK.

For all Non-Restricted Products

If your order does not contain any of the Restricted Products, listed above they will be shipped via the normal channels and no further action from you or our Team will be required and an automated email will be sent to you informing you that your order has been dispatched and tracking will be sent in a separate email by the courier.

Our delivery policy is 3-5 Working Days (Excluding Saturdays and Sundays and Bank Holidays) and this may be vary due to the volume of orders received and by seasonal events such as Christmas and Bank Holidays.

All orders are processed on a queue-based basis so please do give our team the time to contact you and/or process your order.

Pre-Orders

Some of our products are so much in demand that they are on a permanent Pre-Order basis.

Other products may be a new model in the range or a product that has been launched and is available to purchase/Pre-order but has not arrived in the UK yet. This is quite common in the Video Game Industry where Games are often sold as Pre-Orders on Retail websites months before that game has arrived in the stores.

The leading time of a Pre-Ordered product can vary so it is advisable that you contact us in advance before placing your Pre-Order to find out what the lead-in time of the particular product is.

The benefit of Pre-Ordering a product is that your order is guaranteed and pre-allocated to you before the shipments arrives.

The Hunting Edge would like to advise each customer to contact their local customs office for further information if they are in any way unsure of local duties or liabilities.

Please note that when shipping products outside of the UK, you should be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. This can lead to packages being opened and re-sealed. For Christmas Deliveries, we recommend that you order by the 15th December. We will endeavor to dispatch all ‘in stock’ orders within 24 hours, however we cannot guarantee delivery on or before the 24th December as the post may be delayed in your area.
