Gunshop In Neuchatel

Hi.

I'm quite new in Neuchatel.
I wanted to buy an air rifle from the UK.
But they will olny deliver to a 3rd party gunshop.

Anybody knows a gunshop in Neuchatel?
A shop with someone who understand English is preferrable.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Regards,

Arch Angel

Re: Gunshop In Neucatel

Firstly are you allowed to have it here? Is your nationality allowed to own a weapon? Where will you use it?

My nationality is not included on those that are banned from having weapons here.
I'm going to use it for target shooting on the 10m air rifle range in Boundry.
I know I have to get a certificate of no criminal record from the police.
I hope I can discuss other requirements with the gunshop.
I want an Air Arms air rifle.

Best go and ask at Boudry range surely- they will tell you what is legal or not and where to get it.

Re: Gunshop In Neucatel

I went there the other day. Unfortunately, they were close.
It was after office hours.
The bus route is far from the range.
I had to walk for almost 2 km. Going home is much further.
My Swiss friend tried calling them on the phone, nobody is answering.
I'll try to come back there early next weekend.
I was hoping I can visit a shop before the weekend to save some time.
Import & export permits will take about 4-6 weeks according to the shop in the UK.

Re: Gunshop In Neuchatel

Can you not get this air gun in Switzerland? I'm not sure how air rifles are classified these days, but last time I wanted a gun not available in Switzerland, my go-to gun shop owner told me to not bother unless it is a truly special item because it is just too much hassle for a single gun. E.g. importing one firearm is as much hassle as importing a dozen, so they do it in bulk.

https://www.fedpol.admin.ch/fedpol/d...it/waffen.html (all details re importing weapons, etc. in German, Italian and French...)...
... and an air rifle with more than 7.5 joules muzzle energy is considered a weapon (but not a firearm).

Hi Xynth.

I tried to search in the internet for the S400 MPR FT version.
It's not in Air Arms site. Note sure if they stopped production.
I asked their distributor here & they don't have any stocks.
They don't know when will they receive or will they ever receive any.
If your go-to gunshop has this, I'm willing to travel across Switzerland.

Thanks. I don't have a thank you button yet.
