Nice one thanks for all the solid info, its a great help.
So basically there are ways and means around everything once you use your head & dont act the príck with things.
Ideally id be looking for something cheap & solid, an auld Dboys RK10s, throw a few basic internals into her and shes good to go.
Id either sell it on for very cheap or post it home in a couple of pieces.
Which brings me to my next question, some of the HK sites will send an AEG in two parcels, would that be a way around things or am i better off buying local/second hand. I checked some of the prices in a sticky, and i though we were being ripped off for things by some local retailers...
AGE verification wont be a problem, as long as im not debarred on the basis of being a non-national.
