.22 pellet barrels? (UK)

Unread postAuthor: Xerxys » Thu Jul 22, 2010 5:01 am

Does anyone know where to get a rifled barrel/barrel blank for .22 pellets in the UK? An internet dealer would be best. Thanks.

I think chambers are your best bet, if the blanks seem a little pricey you can find an existing cheap rifle and buy the spare barrel for it - for example a spare 22 barrel for theCrosman 2200 is just 17 quid.

Thanks, I'll have a look. Are you from the UK as well?

EDIT: That barrel is out of stock and their website is a pain. Does the whole "delivery to a dealer for pickup" apply to barrels. If it does I'll just by one locally. Thanks

Looks like you're screwed by the VCR act :? this would apply to any mail order outlet in the UK.

The VCR act is a pain, but I suppose it makes sense.

Do you know of any loopholes or ways around it?

It's that kind of thinking which allows UK governments to get away with some of the most draconian gun laws in the western world :roll:

I'm not aware of any loopholes but I suppose if you're over 18 and ask for a spare barrel from a gun shop they should be able to sell you one, or order one from a supplier. It would help if you ask for a spare for an existing one, instead of claiming you need it because you're "rolling your own"...
