I have bought from them. Excellent people to deal with. I have bought quite a lot of spares for my Slavia, Webley, and BSA from them. All genuine parts.

Gurbir22 has posted a very good question and i hope somebody who has experience d of ordering spare part for their imported airrifle should throw much light in this area. Mostly people like us have apprehension about possessing imported air rifle due to the fear of spare parts problem. This has limit our interest of having an imported air rifle.

Hi Sumanngon,

Thanks for sharing the experience. I have been waiting from long time to get some input.
Also, I wanted to import some good quality durable main springs. Problem in India is people sell enough imported ARs but not their original spares.
I have couple doubts:
- Is it legal to import AR springs?
- Was that smooth importing? or any sort of obstacle @ custom.
- Or do you need any sort of license to import those.
Let me know.. And thanks.

Hi Gurbir22,
I have ordered a few times from airgunsparesk.co.uk for air-rifle spares.
Service of airgunspares.co.uk is outstanding, seamless order placement and processing. And in-case any clarifications required, quick email response with required details and suggestions.
India Customs was also seamless except once I was asked for the justification to import air-rifle spares and I replied with my target shooting interest and shooting club membership details and it was released.

If you have any further questions, please PM me, happy to help.

Mine was a smooth import straight to my door step. But then it was before the draconian law passed in Air rifles. But since they supply the original spares, and the guns you have doesn't cross 20 joules energy, I gues it wouldn't be an issue. Order for one of your guns for experience. As for the dealer, I give a clean chit on them. As for the issues regarding having a license, I suppose it is t required but if you have a rifle club membership card, that should see you through for a .177 gun under 20 joules.
