Special Order Airsoft

    I use to be able to order in guns from abroad not usually available here in Ireland through 'Eirsoft partners service'. Eirsoft would get it through customs and put the FPS down to 328 fps as required. It looks as though Eirsoft are gone now and Im wondering if I can get any service like this from any other site?
    Thanks!

    Contact any other retailer and ask them. There are a couple with threads in the Retailer sub-forum .

    Hobbyairsoft are currently shipping in 2 guns for a mate of mine and Airsofteire have done so for me in the past, so I'd hit them both up. If all else fails just order it yourself, all sites now have a downgrade service you can pay for and bar getting hit with taxes, handling fees and what not customs are generally hassle free

    If ordering your self is the only option, try the UK and here is a list of places to buy from:

    http://www.ukara.org.uk/approved-retailers.php

    Also, here are a couple of places in Europe:

    http://gunfire.pl/

    http://www.taiwangun.com/

    http://www.greekairsoft.gr/

    So no taxes ;)

    I have used Taiwangun on a few occasions. They at good. If you just buy the spring qnd ask them to downgrade it they do it for free. And with them you get a min of 6 month warranty. I bought stuff off them last year and only issue I had was my rear sight came off my pistol. But that was my fault for falling in a river hehehe. Plus they ship over by ups so your waiting about 4-5 days.

    I'd happily recommend airsoftguns.ie (plug and a half :D). They have literally never said no to my requests and will downgrade the rif in question for you if needed. They will look for a €50-€150 deposit depending on the value and will take at the upmost of 5 weeks before its in your hands. There's a 10 day clearance process for customs in Shannon.

    I got in touch with Airsoftguns for a WW2 gun and he was back to me pretty quickly with a price and ETA. Pretty impressed.

    Was also impressed how other retailers were quick to check for me, and were happy enough to recommend each other.

    Also the quote I was given was cheaper then fire-support.co.uk, and actually working out cheaper then buying from ehobby in dollars.

    I go direct to the guys in the UK, Usually the guns are 1 Joule anyway but if not its like 20 Euro or so for a less powerful spring.... At that point its then legal to ship in.....

    What are you looking for exactly?

    Try http://www.airsoftworld.net/ they are really good. And have a good selection of new and second hand guns on offer.

    This is the gun im attempting to get in,
    the only luck I had was with AirsoftGuns.ie who say it will be around €499 to get in my hands.
    taiwangun has one about the same price but not real wood.
