    Good news, I'll await the pictures. Also any reviews on ease of fitting and quality/fit of the inlet and barrel channel would be good as I'm going to be ordering one in woodland camo if your experience goes well.

    In my own experience of buying from the US there is no norm where customs are concerned. I had some scope mounts ,bases and rings, held up for months but other stuff comes straight through. Have even had stuff arrive via the post man with no duty to pay.. Seems to be no rhym no reason to it.

    A Forum Member of my Acquaintance had to turn up at the Coventry Hub with his FAC before they would release his Rings and Bases!!!!! Fortunately he lived relatively close. I believe we are all on Computer now so this should not happen again.

    If only it had been that simple!!!
    The rings and base were part of a consignment of parts for my 10/22 from Brownells which they had marked "Gun Parts" on the customs declaration, the other parts being extended mag and bolt relaese, shock buffer, extrapower mainspring and oversize cocking handle, all parts non licensible and available off the shelf here.
    I recieved a letter form HM Customs explaiming that they would not release the parcel untill i proved i was either being a RFD or a Providing proof of my authority to have these parts by virtue of a copy of my FAC accompanied by a letter from the Home office stating i am lawfully allowed to have these parts

    I phoned customs and informed them that these parts were not restricted could be bought by anybody but they were not having any of it
    I then wrote to the home office explaining the situation and recieved a letter from them a week later confirming that the parts are not restricted.
    I sent this letter otgether with a copy of my FAC to the customs hub at Coventry and waited for notification telling me thet my parcle had been released, after a couple of weeks a letter arrived and i thought i can get my parcel but NO!! now they wanted to know what firearm on my FAC these parts were destined for and please could list each part and its function.
    WTF i thought to myself and i was not very happy but i conformed and did as they requested, finally after another 2 weeks my parcel was released and to add insult to injury there was an extra administration charge on top of the duty VAT and handling charge!!!!

    Ian.

    PS. on a more lighter note i have had three Mcmillan two Boyds and two Richards Microfit stocks through Coventry without a hitch.
