The purchaser must send his/her Firearm or Shotgun certificate by recorded post to: Southams, 24 Newnham Street, Bedford, MK40 3JR. The details of Lots purchased can then be entered on the certificate.
On receipt of the necessary certificates, the Lot(s) will be packed and the purchaser will be invoiced. Upon receipt of payment the Lot(s) will be sent to the nominated RFD with the purchaser’s certificate(s).
