Not worth the risk, especially if you are an RFD and therefore this is your business/income you could loose.

Parcel Force will not carry any firearm (including sub 12ftlb air rifles) unless you are an RFD, have an account and have written permission to send firearms. You can also only send to another RFD..
Not true keef... as a civvy not an RFD you can legaly send a firearm for repair to an RFD.... i may be wrong on parcel force but either royal mail or parcelforce are authorised to carry firearms,,,
