Mines showing as due Monday as well, but was at Stanstead @ 11pm yesterday, so may still attract duty/vat; I've had 4 Autotricklers from Adam and been stung every time so not expecting to clear HMRC without a bill, but there's always a first time I guess 🤞

Yep, I had a v3 order from 8th Jan, converted to the v4 the day he announced it. My v3 was due to be shipped the following day. 

I should have had it 3 weeks ago but I ordered a shotmarker that he had a few issues with. I was charged £82 import duty on the two things.

I’m not very up on this but one US firearms dealer mentioned this extra burden as a reason for them no longer selling into the U.K.  not sure he interpreted the rules correctly but that’s what he told me. 

For goods sent from overseas and sold directly to UK consumers without OMP involvement, the overseas seller will be required to register and account for the VAT to HMRC.

That's for "consignments not exceeding £135" which basically means cheap purchases need to have vat paid up front so they don't get caught by customs and charged vat and handling fee. Anything above that and there's no change.
