Buying from Evike

Postby YankeeBravo » Sun Jun 24, 2018 3:48 pm

I want to buy one of those WinGun M44 Carbines in 6mm for a project but I'm not sure if I could have it sent from evike to the UK. Would anyone be able to let me know if they have done before and if there was any grief given by customs/any issues at all really etc

I only know one guy, who said he got his gun from Evike, and he said he had to get it eventually through another country, he might have told me what country.......but I was bored by the time the end of the story came, and can't remember!

Bought guns twice from Evike including that very same M44. No problems from them at all in my experience, make sure you've got your UKARA to hand as they will ask for it. Expect HMRC to wallop you with import duty too, they did me!
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

I have literally just bought an M44 from Evike. No issues at all. The only issue comes from their usage of UPS as a courier, who sent me a form to fill in for my UKARA number - when its already printed in my address........ I hate UPS. Duty cost me around £50 extra. Nice gun, needs .36s or .4s due to the fixed hop and is hot for anything other than sniper role. Mags are nice too. Just a pity its not green gas.

Try one of the 12g-shaped green gas mags, and see what it chronos then? Might be closer to 350FPS that way.

Brilliant thats exactly what I needed to hear. I also bought a nagant revolver recently from herooutdoors for very cheap. That's given me a bit of relief :) Thanks everyone
