    Does anyone in the United States have a MP5 they would eventually want to sell? I’m either looking for the Umarex VFC GBB V2 MP5A2 or the We tech Apache MP5A2.

    Might have problems going through New York or Miami customs.

    It could not be any easier. Place your order, and in the order comments simply ask them to cover up any trademarks, put an orange tip on all guns, and separate the slide from the frame for pistols. LA customs is the only one that has given me trouble and that’s still only two shipments out of probably 100. I was also buying Glock trademarked stuff which seems to be higher risk than most stuff.

    Just understand that if customs confiscates/seizes your order, you will not get a refund.

    If you go with and established Airsoft shop. You will not have to state any of the above for it's obvious to them on how to get an item in.

    All of the established HK shops are fine. KIC in Taiwan is fine and anything in Akihabara in Japan is good too.

    This. Ordered myself an Apache and received 1/2 of the gun. The other half left US customs on Feb 19th and l have not seen it since and have made multiple inquiries about it and no one knows where it went to. Going through who I purchased to see what else can be done currently.

    When this happened to me, customs sent it back. It took like 2-3 months and a bunch of emails but I actually got a refund that time.

    Splitting a GBBR is not a smart thing to do. It can be mistaken as a Real gun part. The specs of GBBR parts for actions and mechanisms is not easily discernable to the inexperienced eye.

    Plus the loss of original packaging for some parts also hampers delivery.

    Don't go cheap on the shipping, just pay for Express and get the item in whole, with original packaging and in a very timely manner...1 week.

    Shipper did this withought me even know it and shipped it all literally in pieces, just the main groups. Kind of pissed me off to be honest. Wanted the box as well to get that fresh from box smell. On top of that, the mag was shipped separate and they never let me know that it was shipped separate. Just came in the mail with the lower one day.

    Okay. KY only offers Postal Delivery and that is their policy on export. Unfortunately for you that is how they "address" export issues to the USA.

    Others use Express Carriers and they cost more, like on a factor of 2-3x more.

    They shipped UPS for me a couple weeks ago. Was an SVD and got here in a week.
