They could make £300-£500 a rifle profit per rifle.
That is now the "Elephant in the room".
The stand AMTA took over semi-auto sub 12FPE rifles made people look elsewhere. The found they could buy easily from Europe, without problems. Other rifles will now be looked at to see just what we can buy them for.
There is no reason why we shouldn't buy from the E.U. especially as the prices are so favourable (Jason Goldsmith told as this quite a while ago). Someone in the selling chain is collecting a lot of money from us and has been doing so for a number of years.
As a standard, people should look what they can buy for from the E.U. before any decision is made who to buy from. I've not heard of anyone who's had a bad experience buying from the E.U. though there is no doubt it will happen, just as it does from U.K. dealers.
