Default how to ship a rifle from Germany.??

Hi folks,
I've purchased a new rifle from Germany but the seller and I are at a loss on how to ship it to the UK.

Does anybody know of a carrier who will ship it from Hamburg to Scotland?

Any advice would be great.

Don't know if it will help but Edgun use DHL to post guns from estonia to where ever you are I imagine they cover germany too.

Try sending JasonGoldsmith66 an email, he has bought quite a few rifles from Germany and he may be able to offer you some suggestions.

I hope you get this sorted quickly, or you'll be faced with shipping it to England and smuggling it north of the border.

Mine came via DHL when I bought from a dealer in Germany. Only potentential problem was the driver just left the box outside my garage!

DHL ship to Great Britain where it then is processed by parcel force at the international hub at Coventry.
GET it shipped to a RFD, otherwise you will wait weeks before having it released by UK Customs.
Let your shooting do the talking.
It's not the aim and release that decided the shot, it's the preparations.

DHL doesn't allows guns to be shipped out of Germany.

How times change. I wonder how this affects sales for companies like Anschutz and Feinwerkbau? When I bought my FWB from Schiesssport Stelljes some years back I saved over 300.
