All airguns come under 28.5% slab. However, it depends upon the custom officer what duty he wants to apply on the restricted category goods!

There ain’t any website right now who accepts or ships order to India. BigBoreAirGun is also down!

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this group.

I'm in Saudi since last 20+ years and planning to return to Indian on exit only visa. I would like to buy an air gun (rifle) with me along with my personal belongings. please do let me know is it possible to import a .22 or if that not allowed then .177 caliber? Is there any restrictions to take it with me as a check-in baggage or may be through sea cargo since I can use my TR facility. what is the current govt. rules for this? I'm not the member of any shooting club or so.

appreciate your prompt reply.

thanks
Sadiq.

I’m Yogesh from Chennai. I have ordered an Electric Airsoft toy gun(AGF) made of plastic worth Rs.3000 (Only 1 quantity) from South Korean E-commerce website named GMARKET on 25th of September. When it reached Chennai the product showed ‘Item Held By Customs’. When I contacted the customs officials, they said airsoft is prohibited according to Indian Arms Rule and is treated as Firearms so it will not be returned to me. Further a Show Cause Notice will be issued to you stating to pay penalty. But I don't think the item that I ordered comes under imitation of firearms since it is just a plastic toy gun with orange tip and has less than 0.12 joule(140fps) energy. The customs officials have misunderstood between a firearm & a toy gun and also it doesn't even attract license to have the toy gun. What shall I do when the show cause notice arrives to me and when will they issue the SCN?...It's been more than 10 days since the customs confiscated my airsoft package

You can contact a good Custom Clearance Agent , though his fees will be 1.5 times to your purchase price.
