Hi,I need to send a deactivated firearm to a buyer.It is the first time I have sold a deact so would appreciate any recommendations on who to use,most couriers list firearms/parts of firearms/replicas and deacts as prohibited items!When I have bought deacts from dealers I normally pay £20 and it turns up via courier!Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Problem with that is, if it`s lost or stolen your buggered?

How do you insure it if you say it`s a golf set?

You can use a courier called MyHermes (Google it). They will ship LEGAL weapons up to a maximum length of 1.2 metres and very cheaply.
