Last time when I spoke to them they mentioned that they don't have the specific tanks in stock.

I wonder what kind of license are they want?

Hi,

Im planning to purchase a RWS Model 34 Panther Pro Compact or a Gamo Varmint Hunter (both in .177 cal) through TopAirGun.

Both the rifle comes with a Scope (also a lazer in case of Varmint Hunter).
I can furnish all the aforementioned documents, but my concer is that whether my consignment will be cleared (due to the scope included in the package)...??

Can someone plz throw some light on the same.

Have the scope taken off, have it shipped in a different package and take a chance or just let it go. JMHO.

seperate packages, would be the best option. Individually they ie, Flashlight & Laser-sighter are of no interest to customs. but along with an airgun, they might just be looking for a reason..
I have got both these in a single package last month, and the package was'nt even opened.

Nazeef - I would still give a 2nd thought on importing scopes along with the Air Rifles.

In the past I had a pellets along with my shipment and customs gave me highway run for nearly 4 months before I got my shipment released. In the end I ended up paying a huge fine even after establishing strong contacts with Customs Commisioner.

The tension is not worth the effort.

Hi, im a member of the Gwalior District Rifle Association (Affiliated to MP State Rifle Association), but they do not issue an I-Card for their members... only a Certificate which says My Name, Father's Name, address, Membership No. and the validity of my membership since im an annual member.

Can i import an air rifle...?? As after going through so many posts, the thing that i came across is that i need to mail a scan of the ID Card. :(
