though looking on the royal mail website it lists air rifles as being restricted, is there anything i should do to protect it ?

i was planning on sending it recorded & in my solid case (wrapped up), but i cant lock it otherwise they cant get it out the other end.. the other thing i was thinking was to secure it with cable ties to at least reduce the chances of it being opened, or at least show if it had been..

This should help you as covered before:
