    Trouble is on finance is the APR (interest rate) most of the dealers want over 29% & thats very expensive considering you can get personal loans for under 7%.

    Shop I used to get my gear from would let you put a little away every week till you had the right ammount to buy. But the trouble with that is you prob want the rifle straight away

    Personal loan or Credit card are the best ways forward unless you can borrow from a family member (0% interest )

    Hi,
    I dont know if this will help as you have stated you are after finance. However I recently purchased my air rifle from Woody's of Wembley who advertise in 'Airgunner' and 'Airgun World' and they use a system called cheque spread. Basically you send six pre-dated cheques and they withdraw the money on the dates the cheques have been written for, plus this way you don't pay interest! Hope this helps.

    Yeah, but generally you'll pay a lot more for your rifle there anyway.
    Just visit and check out some of their prices!

    more expensive than mail order?

    and i wonder why.
    what with all of the over heads that local shops have it is a wonder that the mail order companies havnt put them out of business by cutting prices to the bone
    stop whinging and support your local shop cos once it is gone it's gone!
    and that includes all of that knowledge that the staff have and all of the little favours that they do.

    What they say about credit cards is correct.

    My better half is in finance and threatened me with blunt rusty objects if I considered using finance (uttings or otherwise).

    I dont think it works out too well if you come into cash and want to pay it off quickly either

    29% is a hell of a wad to pay extra.

    Save up if you can...I cant (did it once but nearly died of impatience )...or do it on a credit card...carefully

    Price Difference between Mail Order and Shops

    Work it out, one is Stocked & Staffed and normally in a good Location
    With high building & running costs

    Another is buried away and only staffed fully when orders arrive
    In many cases, not needing to keep much stock until orders arrive.

    As many firms these day's offer lower prices when you do not have to deal with people
    As order on Line , less 5-10% of prices - services.

    Workers need paying and a place to work

    What really get's me is Shooters that spend Hours in a Shop
    looking at possible outfit's
    To go away and buy via Mail Order
    Then have check to walk into the shop and ask the Dealer to set up the outfit for them
    Which they most probably would have done if they had purchased it from them

    Service costs money

    But as many are finding out the hard way when buying a Gun
    that they often go wrong and need to be returned to supplying dealer
    And carriage for Gun's is getting very expensive these days and can easerly wipe out any earlier savings.
