Does anyone have any experience with importing a rifle from Germany?
A friend of mine is having problems: it seems that the German authorities want a UK import licence before issuing an export permit, and it is unclear what they mean by this. Is an FAC or and RFD certificate adequate?
A few more details: the friend owns the rifle, and it is second hand. He does not currently have his FAC but is in the process of applying. A local RFD has kindly agreed to take it in and hold it until he has his FAC, and they say there shouldn't be any problems with this.
All advice very much appreciated.
