If you have a valid defence then it should be easy enough. Postage costs can be worked out by just going through the checkout. Customs charges can be worked out to a degree by going onto the customs site and seeing how much you could be taxed for.

Could be 30-50 I should imagine, depends on the value of the item.

Shouldn't be a problem since you have UKARA. I've bought from ehobbyasia before and their pretty good. I think you can get an estimate of how much it will cost on their site when you go to order it :)

    Inter-continetial ballistic missile

For a RIF you should expect to pay anywhere between 60-90 on customs charges unless you somehow get lucky.
From what people have said i was lucky to only have to pay 60 for my WE pdw from redwolf.

1: do a checkout, the postage costs are listed
2: Ask them to put your UKARA number on the outside of the box
3: you will pay customs at 20% 'ish of the value including shipping, plus a handling fee of 14-20

To get round the customs fee, see if someone in Europe has the gun. http://www.taiwangun.com/ or http://gunfire.pl/se...?reason=product may have what you are after and as they are in the EU, youdon't pay customs duties, just shipping (about 20)
