After a strategic review of Customs export and import restrictions on most of the products, we have regrettably decided that we are no longer able to accept or process orders for international customers outside the UNITED KINGDOM (UK).

We do not ship to BFPO addresses or to Freight Forwarders.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your valued custom in the past and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

"It is a criminal offence to import Firearms into the UK which have not been proved in a C.I.P (the international proof governing body) approved Proof House, without giving written notification to the British Proof Authority within 7 Days of their entry or submitting for proof within 28 days of their entry. It is also a criminal offence to export a firearm which is not marked with a valid Proof Mark."

Please ensure that you comply with the above requirement.  



These items are controlled by the U.S. Government and authorized for export only to the country of ultimate destination for use by the ultimate consignee or end-user(s) herein identified. They may not be resold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of, to any other country or to any person other than the authorized ultimate consignee or end-user(s), either in their original form or after being incorporated into other items, without first obtaining approval from the U.S. Government or as otherwise authorized by U.S. law and regulations.



Delivery timescales are dependent on where the products are sourced. The majority of products are held at our US warehouse with some goods being held at the EU and UK warehouses.

'Tracking status: Advised. We have no tracks for your parcel yet. The status of your parcel will be updated in due course.'
We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated timescales, however delays are occasionally inevitable and time for delivery will neither be of the essence nor will it be a fundamental term of the contract between us. We will endeavour to keep you informed of any delay to your expected delivery date. The estimated delivery timescales are dependent on airfreight and customs clearance.

Our company policy states that we shall not supply knives of any kind (nor knife making materials or accessories), to persons under the age of 18 years. We regret that we cannot send knives to educational addresses. We supply knives solely for legitimate field, recreational, sports and utility use, or as collectable curios. We reserve the right to refuse a sale or terminate a contract should we have any reason whatsoever to believe that the person to whom we shall supply may be under the age of 18 years, or if we believe that the supply may contravene any other legislation affecting the sale of knives. Further, by entering into a contract with us for the purchase of a knife, you are hereby consenting to our undertaking such searches as may be reasonably to satisfy ourselves as to legislative compliance.
The following statements are made for the purpose of giving guidance, and cannot be viewed as comprehensive knife safety instructions. Ultimately, knife safety is your responsibility and common sense should be exercised at all times. A blunt or carelessly handled knife can cause serious injury. Keep a keen edge on your knife and exercise caution when sharpening the blade. Always use a Knife with proper due care and attention, and never use a knife as a pry bar or a screwdriver, or for a purpose for which it is not specifically designed. Never threaten anybody with a knife, even in jest, as this is a serious Criminal Offence. And never leave a knife where it might be accessible to a child, a minor or any third party.



The Policing & Crime Act 2017, at Section 129, changes the category of some expanding ammunition. Section 129 removes, from Section 5, some expanding ammunition and expanding projectiles.  Prior to this Act both complete rounds of expanding ammunition and individual expanding projectiles were prohibited without the necessary Authority. Since the coming into force of this Section of the Act, on May 2nd 2017, all expanding ammunition other than that solely designed for use in pistols, will be regarded as Section 1.
Expanding pistol ammunition will remain controlled in the UK. The EU Weapons Directive 91/477/EEC of the 18 June 1991 prohibited expanding pistol ammunition except for certain purposes e.g. humane dispatch. Pistol cartridge ammunition for rifles will be exempt where it is loaded specifically for rifles of the correct proof. 

If you wish to purchase expanding pistol caliber bullet heads we will need you to provide us with your local RFD details and you will need to confirm that they will accept these on your behalf. If the RFD has an account with us we can ship to them, if not we will require them to fax or email their RFD certificate. Once this is done you can place the order with their address as an 'alternative delivery address' when you place the order. Once this arrangement is in place all future orders from Brownells UK that require validation of your firearms certificate can be shipped to your local RFD. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact customer service at: or by telephone on: 01788 815115.



The PSNI have requested that we remind customers in Northern Ireland that the Firearms (Northern Ireland) Order 2004 will apply on all purchases. We ask customers to ensure that they comply with local legislation, in particular restricted components, detailed below:

(a) any barrel, chamber or cylinder;
(b) any frame, action, body or receiver;
(c) any breech block, bolt or other mechanism for containing the pressure of discharge at the rear of the chamber;
(d) any part of a firearm which directly bears the pressure caused by firing;
