    You can request a downgrade to less than one joule, not sure of the cost. But if I were you I'd ask an Irish retailer to import it for you, last thing you want is your new aeg seized and destroyed least this way you have peace of mind, and your supportin irish/airsoft business :).

    Ye I read up about the downgrading but I tot it was only downgrading its paper work to allow it through the port not actually downgrading the gun , ah so that's handy

    Many thanks

    Best bet is to use a domestic retailer.
    If you try to import it and it's over 1J (even though the seller claims it's under) it'll be destroyed and you've no comeback.
    That said, a lot get through with no problems but it's a gamble. :)

    They do provide a downgrade service which is not expensive, just cost of spring:

    Last two rifles they downgrade to me for free, and shipping cost is free if order is over €69.
