    SA-7 Strela Missile for Sale in Europe

    Does anyone have one of these available in Europe? One was available on Quickfire a year ago, but I have not seen one since. Not the tube or the grip stock - the missile itself. Thank you.

    Any part of a launcher or missile from any MANPADS system, foreign or domestic, is considered Taboo by Homeland Security. If you find one, keep your mouth and camera shut.

    Remember the Excalibur projectile?

    I saw a very nice one, being on offer in a surplus Mil store, when I visited a neighboring country. It looked to be complete. Nothing missing, besides the live material. It also was not expensive. i left it there, hoping to find a still better deal somewhere else. I did see another one, at a big dealers warehouse for demilled munitions. But, they would not accept foreign currency and the legal situation of importing it into germany was very much unclear. I do not even know, how such a demilled article is classified nowadays here.

    Not by Homeland Security, but the Patriot Act. Google it and look at the section on MANPADS.

    The way it reads, yes. Any manpads, manpads parts or components. Makes no reference to live, expended, inert. Doesn't mean that they would pursue, just means that they could.
