Hi all!

So looking at buying new weapon and have found it at RedWolf for 100+ less than UK prices...

Has anyone here bought a RIF from RedWolf?
If so did you get charged extra by UK Customs?
Did it arrive OK otherwise?

Wanted to see if it was worth buying for them.

Thanks!

John

From what i have heard it isnt worth it

With import cost P&P and possible Customus holding charge by the time you get it you have almost spend that 100 saving

Also you dont get the support that you if you bought local (say if you have to send it back you will get hit with the import charges on the return

But thats just my opinoin

where are you importing from? depends as the postage will be HUGE! and customs don't really like any form of weapon going through. its worth spending the extra and buy local.

RedWolf - Hong Kong.

I just bought a suppressor from them and it was quite cheap and quick.

But guess full on weapon wouldn't be quite as simple.

I got a quote for a Tokyo Mauri P226 with a spare mag. They wanted $162 plus $32 for airmail shipping. Total approx 123. No idea if thats good value for that weapon??

Also would it not just get seized by customs?
Thanks!
