Strangest part about the whole experience, Parcel force delivered it! You couldn't make it up!
That all been paying 189 Euro for years.
Theres a damn site more couriers who do not carry 'weapons' but honour the foreign sender request and know exactly what they are carrying.
Theres also a substantial drop in the Euro this year generally £230 on a £1980 rifle, bare in mind buying from a foreign shop at full whack they are making money. That's several hundred cheaper than UK trade price delivered and around £700 cheaper than a UK shop giving a good price.
Know of 8 Steyr Challenge FT that supposedly don't exist all legit.
Me Adam last year also my shooting partner for a day, he is a reputable dealer but have had no dealings though many have had good service.
I would check the order!
