I can recommend eHobby Asia.com for fast and courteous service. Having struggled to find a spare GBB magazine, I found they had stock and delivered in 3 days from Hong Kong.
Excellent Service.

I've also dealt with Landwarrior Airsoft in Scotland, very helpful and enthusiastic people to do buisness with

What is it like to get spare parts in the UK for GBB weapons; it as easy as it is here in Taiwan?

In my opinion (I'd been to the UK several times) - getting both the airsofts and the parts in the UK are tortures as firstly I couldn't find any gun shop around London (maybe due to the high rent as well as the "high sensitivity") - I'd even had trouble finding "Gun Mart" in London newstands (might be similar to Australian newstands in which some don't sell gun mags anymore because it might "provoke violence" - at least that's the case in Sydney).

If it's said that getting parts in Taiwan is easy then I can say getting parts in HK is much much more easier - the shops in Taiwan are quite scattered unlike HK in which almost 70% of established gun shops all in one street (and most importantly cheaper than both Taiwan & Japan)...

Yes a good shop indeed - I got the cheapest Taiwanese version KSC MP7A1 there (already cheaper than other shops and best of all another 10% discount promotion) - also the shop's layout is close to Den Trinity which is clean and tidy...

Also WGC is excellent Very Happy ...

So obtaining any airsoft items are nonexistent then in the UK? I get all my stuff from Ruten. This is the seller I get all my weapons from - next day delivery.

I don't know if you'll be able to beat him on price.

I would not purchase any items in the shops here as you can pay NT15.000 for a KJ M4A1 (C8).

There are several Airsoft dealers here in the UK. Skirmishing is hugely popular here and buying GBB guns and parts isn't a problem.
The Internet has made the World a much smaller place though and many items can be found at lower prices overseas (much like everything else)

Buying from Hong Kong and Japan is as easy as it could be, trying to buy anything replica gun direct from Taiwan, be that Airsoft or cap firing parts, accessories or complete guns has, in my experience anyway, proven to be impossible.

Those two links that I've recently posted, Mr Chen speaks English. He might be able to post to the UK.

Give it a go!

Thanks for that

If goods are guaranteed to get past Taiwan Customs without being siezed on their way out of the country it'll certainly be worth making enquiries.
Thanks again

Taiwan ships its airsoft to all over the world.

Heres is a message from Clare at KJW to me.

Please tell me your country first.

Thanks!

It's worth noting that shops in Europe usually carry only the most popular and the latest selection of replicas and accessories. If you search for obscure items or ones no longer produced (such as MGC mag that Cerwyn looked for), usually the only chance is HK/Japanese shops (or auctions/forums).

Rise of affordable international shipping made shopping abroad much easier Smile Often prices when shopping directly in Asia are lower than locally, even with additional shipping, VAT and customs fees.
