Default Shipping an airgun from UK to Europe

Do any of you know which companies/couriers would ship a 12 ft/lbs airgun from the UK to Italy? For what it's worth, the rifle is marked as a 7.5 Joule rifle on the action.

I will be in Italy on vacation in May, and wondering how to get an airgun from the UK to Italy. It will be sent by a private person.

If any of you have done it recently, how did you go about it, and who did you use to ship it?

I have seen on Parcelforce's website they will not ship from UK to Europe, only within the UK.... Any others?

Thanks

Robbie

Speak to manufacturer of said gun and get them to send it abroad?

If it's a conversion of a rifle, assuming here fwb or anschutz?, speak to person converting it and ask them to speak to the distributor see if they can organise....may mean paying delivery twice but...

Did you find any international carrier/courier that ships within Europe?

I have a HW100T in Czech Rep, and cannot find anybody to ship it over hear. I thought it would have been easy, but it's turning into a nightmare!!

One of our members from our club is also having the same problem shipping to Germany with his FWB.

If you are travelling by car and the airgun is legal in all the country`s you are travelling through then you can just take it with you in the car.
As for the rifle from CZ contact Balistas.CZ , They regularly send airguns throughout europe.

That's were I brought it from. I had it delivered to a distributor there, thinking I could UPS it on my discounted account. How wrong I was.

I contacted Balistas.CZ and they said if I return it, they will ship it, but there is a 5% chance it may get seized.
With my luck I'll get it seized and destroyed.

I have read on the forums there are specialist road transport. I don't supposed you know any names or charges?
