I'm not sure what you have there store wise. You might want to search for a member called Black H, he lives in south africa and has made some nice guns.

It's not the best idea to post your location - even if you're not very specific. Consider editing your post

the best places to buy parts
try ebay

For anyone that does loss prevention is aware of a serious reputation problem with scams in West Africa and to a lesser extent South Africa. The problem has grown so bad that many companies refuse to ship there. Nigeria has the worst reputation. Due to the problem, UPS and Fedex will not do COD deliveries there. Too many fake checks.

A version of the scam to get past this uses unwitting money mules to pay for the shipping. Beware of check cashing job offers. These most often lead to you stuck with the bounced checks.

The advanced fee fraud is so well known that the fraud has taken the name of the Nigerian Criminal code banning it. Do a Google search for 419 Fraud.

This is not a Race bash. Please do not take it as such. It is a poor country who has found a way to make easy money through fraud. Race has nothing to do with it. It has to do with the country, poverty, government corruption, and the easy way they found to make a living.

In a nutshell, I don't ship to Africa other than some charities. The odds of not being paid is high.

I do frequent some anti-scam sites. It has become a sport to tie up the scammer's time and money for internet cafe's keeping them too busy to work victims. Getting trophies such as fake certified checks, money orders, and such is part of wasting the scammer's time and resources.

Learn to spot the scams. Working over a scammer is a sport. This does not get the inocent. It only gets the scammer who contacted you first.


Here is a youtube video of one scambaiter's haul from scammers.

On the side note, I'll be glad to help a spudder in South Africa. Just don't ask me to ship anything.
