    You Shop Scope?

    Morning people,

    Just wondering if anyone has purchased a rifle scope in the USA and had it sent home with YOUSHOP?

    Or, who uses who for shipping?

    Cheers

    Slimy

    Have a look at this, they pretty much say no to everything Firearms related on this list (It's pretty detailed)

    I would have to agree I even had trouble getting them to ship some nylon brushes for cleaning a AR-15 action. The packing slip said gun cleaning supplies the trouble I had convincing them there was no actual solvent etc. was mind numbing. They are an bunch of gun hating a-holes. Just my private opinion.

    Try bringing a hunting knife in. Bastards changed the rules and claimed it was an offensive weapon. I told them the deer would be dead before I started skinning it so how could it find it offensive?

    Probably would have been a good idea to search this prior to using Youshop for scope rings. I'll share my experience.

    I've shipped many things with Youshop in the past including two sets of reloading dies which is contrary to their rules here -->https://support.nzpost.co.nz/app/ans...e-shipped-from. Scope rings are NOT included on this long list. (yes I did note the bit at the end that reads "but are not limited to, the following items:", which is an easy out and generally gives them the right to fuck anyone around.

    Unfortunately they would not ship some rings for picatiny rail mounts this week. They wanted some dangerous good declaration form. OMG. These are for a Tikka rifle. I wish their web page actually stipulated this before I sent them to Youshop. Now I have forwarded them to another freight forwarded company www.myus.com

    Youshop would not send on a 20moa picatinny rail. Dangerous goods you know!! I had to send it to a friend in US to bring over.
