International Non UK Export Shipping – If outside UK please read
There are special UK export rules for sales of telescopic scopes of 10x or more maximum magnification; for ANY type Bipod and all Silencers, Suppressors and Moderators.
We can arrange for a SIEL (Single Individual Export Licence) to cover your order which we offer free of charge, but it can take around four weeks for the The Department of International Trade to issue the licence.
Update 31st July 2014 – EU Sanctions – Russia
Until further notice no scopes covered by export control or other Military List Products such as bipods may be shipped to Russia.
This means only scopes of 4x maximum magnification may be shipped.
We will have to refuse, cancel or refund any orders received from Russia until these sanctions are lifted.
If you are ordering from outside the UK please be sure that you read and understood this page before you buy. If you do not agree please do not buy.
