Ok, was on airsoftworld.net buying another revolver (4'' barrel), the gun costs 25 which i'm fine with.. Added it to my basket, and the postage was 12.50 :o How does it cost 12.50 to s*** a tiny revolver! I posted my w700 sniper rifle today and it only cost me 6!
So the grand total for a 25 revolver was 40 (give or take a few pennies) you can imagine what I said to that :lol:
Anyone else experience this?

All the time in Jersey and they class it as "over seas shipping" so they can charge you anything they want...

I believe it is because of their use of ParcleFarce's 24hour overnight (ha! 3 weeks, even though it was in stock...) delievery.

But...even then, your ammount does seem a tad over the top. Have you checked what type of delievery you opted for? When I ordered my first AEG, my L85a1, I nearly clicked AW's super-duper fast and over-priced delievery. Considering how heavy an L85 is, that could have been...excessive...

It only had 2 postage options, and that was the cheapest :(

It really depends on where there based and what service they use
