Default Taking Air Rifles to Spain via container/truck

Hi all, I am hoping to move to Spain early next year and have a few Decent air rifles which I am loathed to get rid of. I will be moving all of my household goods by either truck or container (via removals company). What I want to know is can I pack the rifles in the container and expect to still have them the other side and do I need to declare them to customs etc?

Assuming that you are coming from another EU country then as far as I know it will all be as household chattle, pack it and send.

BTW there are Moderators on this site

I am not too sure, I would ask your removal company.

This from a forum post in 2008...as long as the air rifle is under the spanish legal limit of 18ftlb all you need to do is register it with the local town hall that you have such a weapon. a licence is not required. But other posts warn that some removal companies won't transport them.

Not declaring it could be illegal ,its a firearm after all , tell your shipping agent or you could find everything being held by Spanish customs for weeks/months (expensive!).
