American Gentleman wanted!

Hello all, this is a bizarre request, but I have seen some rifle parts on ebay that I've been looking out for, for ages. They are completely inert and are just 2 band barrel bands and a hand guard for a magazine Lee Enfield.

The problem is the guy selling them is only prepared to ship within the US, I have asked him if he'll ship them to me in the UK but have had no reply.

That is where my bizarre request starts, I was hoping a kind American would offer themselves as a halfway house for my goods and forward them on to me when they receive them, I will pay for the postage and compensate for any other expenses incurred. (will send paypal payment)

I do apologise for begging but I am not sure what other options I have.

Thank you kindly for any help

Richard

Can you believe I had a volunteer within 2 minutes of posting this, a real credit to our US cousins across the pond.

Thank you for looking anyway.

    • As a theology student my professor, a much published former Naval chaplain, set us an essay, saying that if we could answer that successfully we would be guaranteed  a good degree "Which of the gospel writers was the biggest liar, discuss."   I got a good mark, but  don't want to be burned for heresy.   P

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
