I'm looking to get a few spare for my FAS 602 pistol, but Domino wants to charge over $150 for shipping. The actual parts are worth a grand total of about $20. If anyone is based in Italy and would be willing to ship them to the US I'd be grateful. With that said I have no idea if that's a violation of Italian law, so PLEASE don't get yourself in trouble trying to help me out. I know it's perfectly legal here in the US to receive them, I just don't know about Italy. So if it's possible and some is willing, please PM me and we can work out a deal.

Shouldn't need to limit yourself to Italy, as the EU is still (sort of) in business. Depends on where you can find spares though.

True, but I figured if Domino was going to be crazy on shipping, folks in Italy would probably be the least likely to be hosed over.

Greetings,

I have had excellent service from Domino/FAS in Italy.

They shipped my parts via DHL for about 30 Euros.

Cheers,

Dave

Greetings,

Your quotation is shocking.

I cannot understand why they would gouge the shooters so much.

Cheers,

Dave
