Terms and conditions
Please be aware that we can only sell deactivated weapons, inert ordnance and edged weapons to people who are over 18 years of age. Replicas and Blank Firers are sold according to the VCR Act. By agreeing to our terms and conditions when ordering, you are stating that it is legal for you to purchase replicas or blank firers under the terms of the VCR Act. This also applies to any UK law pertaining to deactivated weapons or inert ordnance. For edged weapons, we require that you email us a copy of your passport or driving licence. Also, any comments or statements you may enter into the customer comments box are taken as a signed statement of fact. Airsoft guns can only be ordered by other retailers, UKARA Members, Crown Servants, Theatre or Film Groups / Suppliers or under the VCR Act. We cannot ship Airsoft guns outside of the UK.
From 12/12/19, and under the new UK Firearms Regulations 2019, D and B Militaria has a legal requirement to notify the Home Office of any sales of deactivated firearms that are deactivated to EU specification (EU Spec 2015/2403 or 2018/337): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/circular-0102019-firearms-regulations-2019-and-the-firearms-amendment-no2-rules-2019/0102019-firearms-regulations-2019-and-the-firearms-amendment-no2-rules-2019. This notification includes the purchaser's name and address, along with the make, calibre, and serial number of the deactivated firearm being transferred. By purchasing from us, you agree to us sharing this information as required by law. There is no requirement to send a further notification of possession, as this will be covered by the notification we send (see point 29 of the above linked document). If in future you transfer this deactivated firearm, you will need to complete a notification. Forms for this are available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/circular-0102019-firearms-regulations-2019-and-the-firearms-amendment-no2-rules-2019.
Minimum order value to EU countries of €150. Unfortunately, the EU has now made it impossible (From 01/07/21) for UK business to send goods to EU countries with a value less than Euro 150, without charging us 22% of the value and extra paperwork (IOSS). We are happy to post items to the European Union and European Economic Area. We cannot send deactivated weapons, component parts, magazines, or any edged weapons to the USA or Canada. Period. However, we cannot send certain items outside of the UK, unless you have special permissions. As it states on our website, we cannot accept PayPal for any weapons, parts, accessories, or inert ammunition. For all foreign orders, please contact us first. Foreign orders must be paid by bank transfer only, no exceptions. Mistaken foreign card payments will be subject to a minimum 5% (USA - 7%) charge. UK based couriers will not insure items leaving the UK. If you are willing to order the item and pay by bank transfer, then we are happy to send them to you. However, it will be sent normal mail and at your own risk. It will need a signature, but will not be insured. Any import fees pending in the buyers country must be paid in full by the customer. Failure to pay these charges may result in the return of goods or seizure. Any losses incurred will be the customers responsibility. If you do want to do this, let us know and we will send you details. Flare guns, launchers, and mortars are not covered by any kind of EU deactivation specification. Therefore all of these weapon types come under UK deactivation specifications, even those with EU certificates. Some EU countries have added additional rules for deactivated weapons or may interpret them differently. The customer is wholly responsible for checking local laws of their country of residence when ordering any items offered for sale. D and B Militaria shall not be held responsible for any items seized or confiscated by your countries Customs or law enforcement organisations, or any penalties received for ordering restricted items under your country of residence's laws, or any charges incurred for any of the above reasons. Items are only tracked until they leave the UK.
For shipping prices outside the UK please contact us. Please also note that for small item orders to Northern England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, we may need to charge extra P+P, as we are forced to use Parcelforce to prevent shipping by air via Royal Mail. There may be a delay in receiving your order until the correct P+P is settled.
When your parcel arrives, it is the responsibility of the person signing for the package to ensure that the item(s) are not damaged. If the driver has to wait for you to check, that is fine. There is an option on the screen that says that if the goods are damaged upon delivery that you will not accept them. Please be certain that everything is in good order before you sign for your goods, as any damages cannot be claimed back once you have signed to state that they are in good order.
Please note that all deactivated weapons sold by D & B Militaria are in compliance with UK law. All goods sold by D & B Militaria are second hand items, unless stated in the description. If we do not have the item ordered, then we reserve the right to send another one. If the serial number in the description has a letter code, and not the last four digits of the gun in the pictures, then it is a batch item, and you will not receive the gun pictured. Please note that weapon accessories are sold as militaria items and are not intended for sporting use and their reliability/ suitability for live firing is in no way guaranteed.
We are happy to take part payments on goods specially ordered for clients, at their request, if not already in stock. If, for any reason, once the goods are ordered, you cannot pay the remainder of the outstanding amount in a timely fashion, we reserve the right to keep all monies previously paid and sell the goods on to recover costs.
Please note that D and B Militaria will not be responsible for the misuse of Airsoft's or Replicas.

They do not come with any guarantees or warranty from the manufacturers or us. They are not delicate, but neither are they real guns. Replicas are not designed for repeated handling. They are display items and any breakage is the sole fault of the buyer.
If you do require a refund, we do ask that the item is returned within fourteen days of purchase, in the condition it was received, whereupon a refund will be issued (less P+P and any admin fees, including credit card costs of up to 5%) if the item is in as sent condition.
