Explanation of the Weapons and Ammunition Act
In the Netherlands, airsoft weapons fall under the act 'Weapons and Ammunition Act', which means that there are strict conditions for selling or repairing airsoft weapons. These actions may only be performed in the Netherlands by a weapon shop that is in possession of a WWM recognition.
Skirmshop has this recognition since July 2021. We now also offer airsoft weapons and repairs in addition to clothing, upgrades and other supplies.
Airsoft weapons are only allowed to be sold to persons over 18 years old. When purchasing an airsoft weapon, we need the following information that you need to fill in/upload with the desired product.

- NABV Number / Ukara Number (if you are not from the Netherlands or UK this is not necessary, fill in 1234567)

- Copy of proof of identity (Passport or ID card)

Orders with airsoft weapons are only sent to the customer who ordered, so you cannot specify a different name at the delivery address. We ship either with PostNL or for selected countries with DHL.
Some airsoft weapons(TAC41) are packed in a box longer than 100cm, these airsoft weapons will be unable to be delivered with PostNL to people outside the EU. Please use DHL as a shipping method if this is available in your country. Orders with products over 100CM and checked out with PostNL will be canceled and refunded since we are unable to send them via this courier.
