Response to Falke 90 for sale

I think that since you're in Cape Town and the readers of this forum are mostly in mainland Europe, the UK, the US and Australasia, it's probably worth you investigating shipping costs and potential restrictions on carriage from RSA.

In general it's becoming increasingly difficult to ship airguns openly from country to country: from Europe to the US and vice versa, from the UK to anywhere overseas, from Germany to the UK etc etc.

Will South African carriers "officially" carry airguns abroad (ie. not through stealth by labelling them "pneumatic compressors" etc!) and can a buyer have confidence that any insurance will be paid in the event of damage?

I'm not trying to put you off exporting your Falke 90, far from it, but I'm acutely aware that international carriers and even national governments are tightening up their policies on carrying/exporting "gun-type goods", even something as innocuous as a 60-year-old pellet gun.
