User Agreement
Weaponology UK is a platform that allows users to buy and sell anything weapons-related within the constraints of UK Law. We have no involvement with any transactions between buyers and sellers and therefore:

  • Have no control over what is being sold, including: the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised; the truth or accuracy of the listings; the ability of sellers to sell; or the ability of buyers to buy/complete a transaction.
  • Cannot confirm the purported identity of users or the validity of the information which users post to our website and therefore buyers must take precautions before entering into any monitory transaction with a seller. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with foreign nationals, under-age persons or people acting under false pretences.

Buyers therefore buy at their own risk and must take appropriate steps and advice prior to purchasing. You accept sole responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying to you. We will, however, remove any listings that are in clear violation of UK Law.

In the event that you have any right, claim or action against any other user arising from that user’s use of our website, you agree to pursue such right, claim or action independently of, and without recourse to us, and you release Weaponology UK from all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including legal fees, known and unknown, arising from or in any way connected with such right, claim or action.

We do not control the information provided by other users which is made available through our website. You may find other users’ information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution and common sense when using our site.
