    I was on to a dealer up north, he gave me a a price + carriage to send to rfd in south.

    Contact local RFD to see if they will do this for you. The RFD will need details of the NI dealer and details of what is to be imported. RFD will then need to apply for an import permit from the Dept of Justice which takes between 7 & 10 days. I would imagine the cost to be around €50 to €75 + VAT. You are really covering the cost of the paperwork / time.

    PM me if you want more info.

    A lot of dealers don't like doing it i find, as you are making them the middle man who's not getting much out of it. The only times i did where when the centrefire pistols were out, and no one down here could get me a Glock, no problem in the north, and it was simple and straightforward, with an article 7 import cert (free).
