I hope they arrive in good time and good condition.

I have waited on the British post several time and there no reason or rhyme to how they treat hard ware.

we had a #32 Mkiii  locked up for a month at one time. We changed to nomenclature to optical star gazing device and it sailed through the next week.

Who knew from one time to the next.

28 years ago I ordered a set of Polymer Ivory grips from Dixie Gunworks for one of my Colts.
 
They were seized by British Customs because DG listed them as 'Ivory Grips'. Despite masses of letters (no email then) they are still are, as far as I know, still in a Customs shed at Heathrow.

its all about words these days - that is what the nazis used to take control of germany - censorship - words , books , and items that are prohibited , when the heck are we going to wise up and tell them to go to he!! , the controling governments always call out words , books and contraband items , who the heck are they to choose our lives and why do we permit it ? 

we are having it here im not looking beyond our boarders , the PC crowd need to be called out for the NAZIs they are , socialism never works and yet there is always an underprivileged , undermotivated crowd that think they will get things for free - they always end up the peasants with the elites controlling everything , those that support socialism are the first in the bread lines ,

I couldn't get two other people to ship the magazines to the states from England because of the red tape,ITAR crap. I explained myself to this guy and we both decided that in would be in both our interests if he disassemble the magazines into their individual components and ship,"Metal Bits" in four separate packages. Sounds like a plan to me...

i cannot fault that thinking - after all there are a lot of metal bits around these days , might want to think in terms of american customs as well , "springs" , "metal box" , "machined or bent plate" might work , i know i was once shipped a bayonet that was called "cutlery" , its not like these bits will ever do a single thing out of line ---unless they go to liberal chicago where they kill each other in great quantities every day with the most stringent gun laws in this country in force ....just sayin ,

I used to use the term 'Machine parts' or 'Engineering components'. That was some years ago before I retired from the business of Classic Guns.

that was an interesting approach - i have a friend in a wheel chair he would find that amusing , heloves guns and is constantly having me modify his chairs to accomodate shooting - i have to add a bit thids week for his deer hunt coming up in the next month , i need to remember that one , 

you do all know that the ATF monitor these sites and they now know how we get around those obtuse regulations .....right ? now we need some new ones to send glass and obscure metal bits across the pond , what a crock of chit
