Vagaries

I have an S-Spring for my Trilux winging its way from Jolly Ol'.

The seller is desperate for FAL top covers to modify for Trilux mounts.

I happen to have a real inch pattern Trilux mount so I looked into shipping it to him in trade for a spare spring.

Because it's a part of a "military" scope it's a munition and I'd need a license to export it.  There are zero restrictions on importing it.

It's a non-controlled item in the UK.  No restrictions on import or export.

So what we have is a situation where I could buy a scope mount from him, have it shipped here, him discovering he could sell it for lot more and offering double my money back; but I can't ship it back because I can't export it!

The little spring is the same deal.
