Hello,

Was just wondering if anyone has had any 'post'-covid dealings with Birmingham proofhouse, or otherwise know how busy they are at the moment?

Just got a gun in there at the moment and the money for it is burning a hole in my pocket like thermite in a polystyrene cup! teanews lol

I know someone who dropped one off there very recently and I think they were told around 10 days.

They shut for part of the lockdown, my RFD had to collect my N.E.W Mosin sharpish back in March as they wanted all finished work out before they closed.

Turns out it’s taken longer than 10 days! If you’ve never been it really is like going back in time. Fully expected to see a bare foot street urchin sat by the door.

Walk in, guy gives you the form to fill in and comes back when complete. He then picks up gat from counter while you stand a respectful distance behind a taped line. Walk out.

Same day option was/is not available.

Surrounding area is a bit of a sh1t hole/building site.
