  1. I purchased something from Germany,not shoting related, and the German seller removed the German vat and ebay then put on the UK vat fee, collected by ebay for the UK government. You shouldn't pay two lots of vat

  2. There's a big difference between the EU putting a tax on cartridges and the price of cartridges imported from the EU going up.

  3. Think someone is pulling your leg, or trying to justify a money making scam, nothing on any EU tax websites to show an increase

  4. As someone who worked for a shipping import and export company for many years, I can assure you that VAT isn’t charged by the exporter. When goods are submitted for customs clearance any duty that is due is added to the purchase value and then import VAT is added to that cost. The clearing agent will then charge for doing this paperwork

  5. FWIW - coming from the continental side - last week I ordered some goods (not ammo tho) from UK - and had to pay 20% Import VAT (from UK to EU) + Customs administration fee 5 €...and that is bad - since I got quite some great deals over at your side so far... Looks like additional 20% VAT betwenn EU and UK will be the norm...sadly, since I was shooting Hull so far but with 20% rise I will have to look for something continental in the future. And looking at the things your ammunition dealers have already jumped the wagon and put some raise to UK ammo immediately...bugger...

  6. I'll let a few others really comment on this before I make some stupid Brexit/Pro Europe fopar which prompts an unnecessary argument. It would be nice to have some independent confirmation & sufficient info to know how it will affect the UK if correct; is the tax on sale, manufacture, export etc. I am a little surprised there is only talk of it two days before it is implimented. I would be a bit pissed if it is correct & I was in the mainland EU.

  7. The wood swaps between mate yep, as do all the chokes. I may yet keep both but I’m also fully aware I’ll rarely shoot the shorter barrel. The lighter wood (customised on the grip by me as you say) is much nicer (according to my taste of course) and so with that wood and the 32 barrels I’m really pleased. Absolutely no problem I’ll do that for you today. I’ve tried and tried but can’t get the choke out. And yep as I said earlier in the thread not even a single mm of gap.

  11. What? Nonsense. You sell all stock at a profit and simply increase the price when the dearer / newer supply comes in. And yes, petrol stations pull this scam as well.

  13. Well work all week, then can't do naff at the weekend so thought I'd strip the Prosport down and drop out the firing pins and have a look. Tapped the retaining pin out, half expecting the firing pin to shoot out, just stayed there, pushed it out and thought where's this spring,still stuck in the recess. Managed to get it out, then cleaned all the crud out and polished the firing pin, slight pitting but soon sanded off, and then good clean of the spring. How I have not had misfires I'll never know, but if left much longer would probably have, from now on I'll due a yearly clean o

  14. If the cost goes up or not, once you have shot through what you have, you will be paying whatever your chosen cartridge costs, simple. You then have options, buy a cheaper cartridge, shoot less, or sell up and buy a fishing rod.😮. As probably mentioned before, the cost is highly unlikely to ever come down, so we just have to bite the bullet, so to speak.🙄 Roll on the end of lockdown, I have 1800 to get through before I have to think about it.😊

  15. Not only Just Cartridges, have seen Orston SG advising that cartridge price rise is on way, whilst JC have quite a broad range Orston only mention Hull, Gamebore, Express and Mirage, Salopian has a chum who has already felt the pinch of a significant rise in buying Fiocchi. Chum enquired with JC, ruse or not the chap (and it’s quite an impressive facility) has negligible remaining stock of clay cartridges.

  16. Just my three penneth! I have shot a Browning or a Miroku for over 40 years , everything that has been posted on this thread is true , but the following needs to be considered. The top firing pin is a straight strike so the hammer hits it with far more force, the bottom pin is angled so the mechanical advantage of the hammer strike is less plus remember the little spring ? very light but still has resistance that needs to be overcome with the strike , factor in that often the bottom barrel firing first can do a lot more work than a top barrel ( no birds , pair killed with one shot et

  17. Let’s put it into context . Financing working capital can kill a company when stock isn’t turning . You have a shed load of cartridges that are not selling and you have reduced cashflow in the company . You have two options to move them 1) discount them heavily and hope you get some takers but apparently all cartridge sellers tell us these are low margin products already 2) inform the market place that they are getting a chance to beat an increase and try and drum up some stock movement . The down side to both of these of course is that your buyers can’t use the cartridges so perh

  18. If the bottom pin has 'gummed' up, THAT is precisely what happens. It is due to the pin not always coming back far enough to be hit with sufficient force by the hammer. The problem being intermittent, I had 3 misfires in a 100 bird shoot and as I was unaware of the sticking problem, was preparing to replace the firing pins. It was only when stripping the gun down to check the pins, that when I removed the retaining pin for the bottom barrel, the firing pin remained stuck in (and it is spring loaded). I had to use a pin punch to tap the pin out from the breech face side. I then realized that th

  19. I'm a long time member of Pigeon Watch and haven't read any such information on there, Just Cartridges have intimated cartridge prices are going up but that's all. As far as I'm aware you're banned from PW aren't you Joe Nash? so how would you know what's being said on that forum.
