Thread: Cheap .22 Air Rifle

  1. #1

    Cheap .22 Air Rifle

    Cabinet clear out means my SMK XS 12 air rifle in .22 needs to go.
    It was chrono'd when I first got it and it was producing a solid 11ftlb.

    There is some rust on the forward half of the barrel, a couple of dinks in the stock and I removed the rear sight when I bought it and put a scope on it.

    With a cheap scope it would be perfect for plinking in the garden.

    These rifles sell today for 100 new and if I had the time I would happily keep it for a bit of fun but I struggle to find enough time as it is!

    Priced to sell at 25 + cost of postage or collection from Bournemouth.

    Doesnt have to go through an RFD as it is not FAC (under 12ftlb)

    From memory the last air rifle I posted cost about 15 including insurance

    Got a hunch that that is no longer the case.
    Certainly you wouldn't be able to post it via Royal Mail. You used to be able to get away with it by labeling the parcel "sports equipment", but now they want to know exactly what's in it, and they won't carry guns of any sort.
    A courier might do a "sports equipment" parcel for you though.

    Wrong, Air rifles 12Ft. LB.or less can be sent by Royal Mail P F until the end of December,when they then have to be sent by RFD. I just done it three weeks ago...Delivered in 24 hrs to boot....It was my RFD who told me to do it...

    Surprised to hear that, as it's contrary to what I was told at our post office.

    Hello VSS, It all depends on who is behind the counter. If it is someone who is interested to look at the rules, it is easily found.
    On the other hand, the moron who could not care less, flaps a plastic card with a Kalashnikov with a big red cross through it,representing 'weapons' that must go through our RFD. Sometimes we just have to teach them.
    Anyway,all change in December here in Scotland. I wonder if they have worked it out with them crossing to and fro over the border... iirc it cost 22.00 with the insurance..**There was a No. 3."enhanced insurance not available" which did not copy**.

    Arms and Ammunition - low powered air weapons Low-powered air weapons (air rifles, air guns and air pistols), together with lead pellets and other airgun and airsoft projectiles, can be sent but are subject to the following conditions:

    1. These items must be sent on an express 48 service only
    2. These items must be sent via the Post Office only, and presented at the counter
    3. ​**
