1. You are over 18 years of age.

All items are classified as Antique in the UK and Northern Ireland as they are exempt under section 58 (2) of the 1968 Firearms Act to be held as a curiosity or ornament. As such no certificate is required for ownership in the UK or Northern Ireland provided they are held as the afore-mentioned.They are also classified as Historical and Collectible Weapons and Category 8 Firearms in The Weapon Categories of the Defence Code (Article L-2331-1) under French Firearms Regulations (Category 8S2 referring to deactivated weapons). They do not require a licence for ownership in France.
These historical pieces are being sold strictly as a curio or ornament for historical significance or value. We do not recommend the use or firing of any weapons sold.
Please make sure the e-mail address you provide to us is correct and working as all order confirmations are sent to that e-mail address.
In the extremely rare event that any order is lost in transit we will undertake to provide a full refund for goods purchased after the expiration of 30 days from the date of order, therefore allowing sufficient time to ascertain the whereabouts of the goods.
The EU Freedom of Movement of Goods Act allows any unlicenced goods to be sent freely between member states without the requirement for the payment of Customs charges, however, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that any such duties are paid for in the destination country.
Customs clearance (UK): Given the nature of the goods we sell, they can frequently be the subject of Customs checks. No refunds will be made whilst goods are being assessed/controled by (UK) customs authorities. Where it becomes clear that the goods, for whatever reason, are not going to be released or have been lost a refund will only be given after a successful claim by ROA on their goods in transit insurance policy.
It is the purchasers' responsibility to ensure that they comply fully with all licencing and importation requirements (Import Permits) relevant to the destination country. It is also the purchasers' responsibility to deal with all negotiations, payments, charges required by the Customs control in the destination country. No refunds will be given for goods seized by Customs and no negotiations will be entered into by ROA Antique Arms with Customs Authorities.
Please note: Depending on the destination country customs checks frequently take between 4 and 8 weeks and in some instances longer.
We will deliver to the cardholder's address or an alternative address. Tracking details are available upon request. Courier services undertake to deliver to a specified address, not to a person. In the case of multi-occupancy at the delivery address it is the purchaser's responsibility to ensure that arrangements are made with any other occupants to take receipt of the package as the item(s) become the responsibility of the purchaser once signed for.
Estimated delivery time 5-7 working days from date of despatch.
Where we purchase items directly from third parties at customers request these items are excluded from our returns policy. Customers should fully appraise themselves of the suitability and condition of such items before making a request that these items are purchased on their behalf. If a downpayment of deposit has been taken or the entire purchase price has been made this amount will be forfit should the customer change his/her mind before delivery.
In all other cases, if for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, goods may be returned (at the discretion of the vendor) in their original condition, for refund or exchange within 28 days of receipt. Please contact us prior to returning goods. An administration charge of £15 will be incurred in all cases of refund or exchange.
Please note that in return of goods customers will be required to pay the full cost of outgoing and incoming shipping including packaging and insurance regardless of whether this was included in the initial sale price. All items must be returned using a trackable and insured service and refunds will not be given until the item is received in the condition in which it was sent. The purchaser will be responsible for dealing with all customs control/negotiation and fees where applicable in respect of the returned goods. All items should be returned in their original packaging wherever possible and include all documentation sent, including deactivation certificates where appropriate. Items lost in the post or seized by customs control on return are soley the responsibility of the purchaser and no refund will be given until the goods are received at our return address (available on request)>
