Our RFD Delivery Service
We offer a Local RFD Delivery Service for Restricted Products such as Air Pistols, Air Rifles, Shotguns, Live Ammunition, Rimfire and Centrefire Rifles, Silencers/Moderators to customers who live within a 60 mile Radius of our premises. We can deliver your order directly to your door within 5-7 Working Days provided the purchased product(s) are in stock.
What if I live outside your 60 mile Home Delivery Radius?
If you live outside of our delivery radius we have a Nationwide Network of RFD’s (Gun Shops) that your order will be sent to via a Secure Courier within 5-7 Working Days (sometimes sooner) for you to collect. We will contact an RFD (Gun Shop) in your area and make the necessary arrangements on your behalf. The receiving/nominated RFD (Gun Shop) will charge between £15 – £25 for the handover and ID Check, but if the total value of your order is below £300 we will contribute £10 towards the ID Check fee by refunding £10 of the £19.99 you paid for shipping when placing your order. This means that in real terms the ID Check has cost you just £15. If your Order exceeds £300 we will refund you the £19.99 you paid for shipping when placing your order. This means that in real terms the ID Check has cost you just £5; and you don’t have to wait for weeks to receive your order. The Refund will be processed after your order has been collected, so please email us to notify us you have collected your order from your Local RFD and we will issue the Refund.

If you live within our 60 mile delivery radius we can complete the entry at your home. If you live outside our 60 Delivery Radius we will send your order along with your FAC/SGC to an RFD in your area via Secure Courier
