Hi Guys,

This is a contribution regarding Denmark, thanks to Mr. Philip Sparholt at "vaabenhistorikselskab".

Best regards


"The items are not confiscated by the Danish Customs, but by the Danish Postal Service!. It is illegal to ship anything regulated or mentioned in the law considering arms regardles of the age of the item.
FedEx usually works alright.
Best regards

I Switzerland there are some restrictions, but they are not too bad, if the weapon is antic – more than 100 years old, and you have to declare it on the invoice. Remember to mail a copy of the invoice to the buyer, as he needs it when the parcel arrives.

The last weapons I have received were send by FedEx, and they are very reliable – fast as well.
