02/04/2014 It has come to my attention that Royal Mail and Parcel Force have decided to prohibit any pressurised vessels, even if they are empty and have their valves removed. This means buddy bottles, the air cylinders on rifles, even rifles with one piece actions that have an inbuilt air cylinder are prohibited. It is a senseless rule, especially if the cylinders/bottles are empty and have the valve removed. I guess they will be banning conduit, pipe, cardboard tubes, party balloons and condoms soon. I am working on an alternative means of shipping rifles. As soon as I have found an alternative I will update my website. If you send me your rifle (or parts) and it gets sent for inspection and subsequently gets destroyed by RM/PF I will not be held responsible.
