It seems that you guys in the U.S. get 'our' airguns over there, but we don't seem to get 'your' airguns over here (apart from cheap Chinese produced springers).

I presume it's because of the power differences, and that maybe the American manufacturers don't consider the UK to be a big enough market to warrant the time, money and effort it takes to comply with our 12ftlbs law.

Can anyone else think of any other reasons? ???

That would be the main reason i would believe others may be our Uk importers not bothered & like keeping our choice down in favour of the more profitable models.
An example is the new FWB Sport,it will easy go 12 ft/lb but high price tag = less sales means less profit for the effort of importing.

VAT & Stupid Regulations have alot to do with High cost of American Airguns in the UK, Obumma wants VAT Here in US to increase unemployment & place more Layabouts under Your Feet and in Your pocket.

England is and always has been THE place for airguns and airgun informed People  in the World. I wish some of Your Air Smiths would try some FAC PCP Modding for the rest of the World without stupid restrictions on Power output.....Franky

Unfortunately most (if not all) of PCPs designed and made in the UK are intended for 12ftlbs use, and when they are ramped up in power, they become fairly harsh to use.

It's much better to use a high power rifle that was intended for high power in the first place.....as trying to squeeze more ooomph out of of some airguns is like trying to get 180mph out of a Nissan Micra. :-\

Benjamin Disco PCP exported to 12flb Land have longer Barrels w/Threaded Muzzell end 1/2 UNF not aval. in US. Has antitamper

Benji. M-Rod PCP export 12flb w/AT non ajustable.

Benji. NP Springer's export to 12flb Land has weak Springs and AT.

Crosman a USA Airgun Company is doing it's part too w/Ratters and such.

Look at all the Add's in AirgunWorld from Crosman/Benjamin.

USA Bench Rest has a 12flb Class a 20flb Class plus a unlimited flb Class and a Factory Class limited $ Cost a Springer Class; Something for Everyone.

The Prices in UK for American Airguns are twice as much as in the States.....(Shipping cost) I don't think so.....VAT.....Import Duty.....Import Tax.....Import License Cost.....Import Permit Cost's.....Antitamper is not for Free.....Shipping Paper works Cost

You only get what You Pay for.....Plussssssss Tax.....Franky
