    Wolf are generally considered expensive by UK standards. I've not used them in any capacity myself so cannot comment on their service.

    As for taxes and the like, you know that both Ireland and the UK are inside the E.U. right?

    Yes I know they both are-sarcasm not needed, I just didn't know as it's airsoft, if there was an extra charge other than the delivery. Can you recommend some decent uk retailers then

    Edit: or if anyone knows any decent retailers within the EU

    That wasn't sarcasm. It was a point. Within the EU is within the EU and the blocking of goods and services by way of additional tariffs goes against one of the founding ideologies of the EU. Anyway, no there are no additional charges other than postage (and whatever currency rates you get given that you're paying in a currency other than euro).

    As for UK or EU retailers; what are you looking for? Guns? Kit? BBs? etc.

    From within the UK, and off the top of my head (I'm missing a few I'm sure);

    if you are looking for tactical kit, clothing, or other stuff (beds, bashas, etc.);

    As for European retailers;

    the only one I really deal with since some of the others have questionable shipping charges and/or do not like it when you point out the quote is significantly dearer than what their website-listed shipping prices (by weight) are ... is Begadi, whom I used a lot for BBs but they do quite a bit of other stuff.

    Just on a side note; for anyone considering ordering off of Begadi, remember that SEAirsoft are the official agents for Begadi in Ireland. May as well keep it in the family buy Irish :)

    I had forgotten that. Cheers Inari, and with my apologies to SE-Airsoft!

    Wolf are expensive for some things, but cheap for some... weirdly. You can get some good deals off them if you look for it. Some things though, you'd pay through the nose for. It depends.

    Service? Grand. I've used them a few times.

    What lemming meant, by the EU part, is that no, aside from shipping costs to ireland, which would be the same roughly, for any UK retailer, there will be no extra charge, because its within the EU, and EU trade laws apply, ie, no import / export duty. Airsoft, as its considered a toy, wouldnt be classified any differently...

    'oh well it LOOKS like a gun, lets add a 'looks' like a gun charge...

    heck, if they did that, Fianna Fáil should have been charged for 'looking' like a political party.
