Always easy to buy from, never had an issue with ordering. However because of my location the courier used to deliver it has always misplaced my order. No fault of patrol base though.

1st order with Patrolbase. 10/10

Placed my first order with Patrolbase this week and I am happy to say that the experience was flawless. All made the better by Natalie, who helped me amend my order (not once, but twice) without any frustration.
I was expecting my order sometime in October but it was expedited (thanks again Natalie) and I received it this morning.
Cracking service and an excellent range of products. I am a very happy customer and will definitely be returning.

Nuprol xl pnp hard case

Bought a very large hard case (Nuprol XL PnP) the order was delivered next day with postage under £10, the case is amazing well packaged and very good quality. Including delivery it was cheaper from PatrolBase.co.uk than most other shops. Within an hour of ordering i received an email with UPS delivery and actually got the case within 24hrs. Good work guys

Poor coms but got there in the end

I ordered a case but within minutes realised I had made a mistake. I emailed them straight away and the next morning asking to cancel the order and refund me. It took a while but they did sort it out in the end. Thanks

Dear Noel,

Thank you for your feedback regarding our services.

Regarding the review you submitted, it appears that you are referring to Factory Cases. It seems that you contacted Patrol Base seeking information and a refund, which unfortunately we were unable to provide. However, we promptly reached out to the appropriate company on your behalf, and they issued a PayPal refund as requested.

We appreciate your understanding and hope that this resolution meets your satisfaction.

Best regards,
Patrol base

Paid extra for delivery, item dispatched two days after due arrival date

Thanks, I’ll be in touch shortly.

Edit re. response:
All well and good regarding your website but to be blunt that’s a problem on your end that I was not made aware of when purchasing and now have to drive 30mins to collect, not major, but simply, for whatever reason I paid for a service I never received.
I’ve changed my rating from 1 to 3 stars because your explanation is valid, but this should be made clear when ordering.

Ps. UPS are awful, they never turn up within the allocated time slot, they only attempt delivery once, and I had used their site to rearrange the delivery date and yet they still delivered on the initially planned day, I would urge you to use someone better.


I paid extra for delivery that said it would arrive by Tuesday. Upon paying it then says that this is an estimate, and that anything from abroad will take longer. Why pay extra when I have no idea where it’s coming from or when it will get here?

I am now on holiday, having expected my package to arrive before I left.
It’s Thursday and I have only just got an email to say that it has been dispatched and should be with me soon.
First and last time buying from here. To not even dispatch until two days after the expected arrival date and having paid extra for fast delivery, it’s a joke.

Dear Matt,

Can you please provide your order number so I can address the delivery issue and get this refunded for you? You can send it to the email below :)

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your review. We truly value the feedback of our customers.

I wanted to address a matter regarding orders placed over the weekend. Please note that Patrol Base is not open on weekends, so any orders placed during this time will be received and processed on the following Monday when we resume operations. Unfortunately, in the case of this recent bank holiday Monday, we would not have received your order until the following Tuesday. Our ordering system does not account for weekends and bank holidays when calculating estimated delivery times. Therefore, if you selected next day delivery, it would generate an estimated delivery time of the next working day.

Additionally, I would like to mention that the bank holiday weekend is typically accompanied by a surge in orders. This past bank holiday was no exception, and we always strive to fulfill orders in a timely manner. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If there is anything we can do to rectify the situation, please don't hesitate to contact me at 01484 644 709 or via email at natalie@patrolbase.co.uk.

Thank you once again for your feedback, Matt.

Best regards,
Customer service manager

Lovely staff

Went to patrol base 2 days ago, great by some amazing guys that helped me pick out a few guns and clothing. Picked up a raven dragon 7 and a sa-f02 flex (waiting for it to arrive in 2 tone still ) the guys where spot on with helping me get everything that I needed to get started with, they weren't trying to force any deals on you they more suggest if u get this u could also buy this along side or u may need this for that. Only thing that I would say to make it better is to have public wifi in there just bcs my data wouldn't load the price. But overall a great experience!

Product came with 3 defects.

Product has very poor quality and came with multiple defects.

Delivery was fast and products box was undamaged.

I purchased a krytac trident mk11 crb for £369.99 expecting to get a premium gun as you would expect with the premium price tag, but that is far from what I received. The product came with 3 defects out the box. The dust cover does not latch shut how it's supposed to, The stock scratches the buffer tube on the first time opening it leaving silver scratches down the black buffer tube and most importantly the fire selector on the right side of the gun gets caught in multiple places making the fire selector useless on the right side and also effects the left side as it some time gets stuck to the point where the selectors become unaligned.

Always my go-to airsoft shop

Always my go-to airsoft shop. Great prices, great range, extremely frriendly & helpful staff and they always deliver stuff super fast. I've had a couple of occasions where I needed something delivered early or returned something and that's when they really stand out. No bullsh't, no hassle, really friendly and efficient about sorting it. Brandon in particular is a stand out.
The videos showing all gear as well are extremely useful What a brilliant idea and great service to airsofters!
I highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for any type of airsoft gear.

Poor shipping cost

Patrolbase has a great selection of airsoft equipment and helpful friendly staff but they have a terrible shipping service for Northern Ireland, It doesn't matter what is ordered,the shipping will be £49.99 this is just not sensible.

Good aftersales customer service

If you want your two-tone weapons in 1-2 days, they can't help you with that. And that's the only con.
Pros: Very good customer service aftersales, they've manage to help me learn how to put batteries inside the gun. Also advised why NiMh are better than LiPo for begginers and viceversa.

I recently bought a new rifle fro pb but the mag was different to the one advertised. One simple phone a to pb and I was blown away how helpful they were. I was offered a replacement gun of my choice up to £20 more than the original, but I was happy to ask for a replacement mag to which they obliged but also sent me 3000 quality bb’s.
The guy on the phone could not have been more helpful and this will always be my go to for Airsoft supplies.

Over and above!

Not often motivated enough to write reviews but the service recently received from Patrol Base deserves the effort!
Purchased a pistol for my sons birthday, it developed a small but annoying fault. Patrol Base went over and above to rectify and ensure the experience was nothing but positive. Shall use no other now for anything airsoft related!

Great company and would be 5 stars but unfortunately they use UPS for delivery and the service for UPS local to me is not worth paying for.

Local delivery drop off when not home is miles away and it's next to impossible to change delivery.

Thanks for leaving us a review! We always appreciate the time taken by our customers when letting us know about the service they received and purchases from us!

We are sorry you felt the need to give us a 3* review based on the courier we use for our delivery of RIFs (Realistic imitation firearm).

UPS are the only courier company which provide a delivery service for RIFs. Other delivery companies refuse to handle RIF's. Without UPS, we wouldn't be able to ship goods to you and our other customers. Anything which is NOT a RIF is sent via DPD.

If there is anything I can do to help rectify any issues with purchasing and/or delivery please do not hesitate to get in touch!
I can be contacted via email natalie@patrolbase.co.uk or alternatively 01484 644 709.

Bolster Armouries Drop 3. SBR & Carbine.

Bolster Armouries Drop 3. SBR & Carbine.

We've used the SBR & Carbine for airsoft several games now and as you would expect from a high end platform, the RIF's perform 'Flawlessly'. These RIF's really are a pleasure to use & The rate of fire is excellent. (While the price tag is up there, if you were to break down the individual parts list to build one of these yourself, add to that the case (and if you cant do it yourself, the cost of a tech who could put it all together, so it works as well as it possibly can.....) It's on par with what you'd expect to pay & not excessively so) - Then a 24 month warranty.... Mark @ BA is great. Approachable & responsive to queries with good advice. Absolutely no issues there. BUT IF you're an air softer who likes to do the full Milsim/Camo thing - the colour schemes probably ain't going to sing for you. And it would be a travesty to paint one of these up to that style. We're really pleased with our RIF's. They are a brilliant upgrade to our previous platforms & I guess to use a couple of cliche's - 'You get what you pay for!' & 'It does what it says on the tin!'

Great service

Great service. Bought a few things from Patrol Base on line. Always been fast service/delivery. When there was an issue with my ukara it was sorted out straightaway. I’ve also been into the physical store. It’s very impressive. Staff were very polite and friendly. We were served by Gary who knew everything about the gun we were going to buy and provided excellent advise. Definitely my favourite online retailer.

Amazing friendly service

Visited the patrol base store today with my son who is in a wheelchair. There is a ramp which gets you into the entrance lobby however the main showroom is upstairs, unfortunately because of the type of building there is no lift to get into the main showroom however the staff at patrol base were really friendly and accommodating, they were willing to bring down anything I wanted for me to look at in the entrance area and I was able to buy the KC-02 and accessories that I wanted, they kept an eye on my son while I just nipped upstairs to pay at the till and then helped me again by carrying all my purchases to the car. This is absolutely fantastic customer service I couldn't be happier. Well done Patrolbase.

Patrolbase impossible task

Patrolbase are excellent
They 95% of the time have what I need
There delivery is quick and bulk buy offers are good
Phone and emails are usually answered and in a professional manner
I have also set them an impossible task to find a part that not even the manufacturer can supply me
But so far never had a problem with them

Hi Jason,

Normally great but seem to have dropped off on the comms front

Really good company to order from but my recent experience has clouded my view abit, ordered some parts last week and paid for the 1-2 day delivery. Aware there was a bank holiday so I am trying to find out a way to contact them regarding estimated dispatch as their phone number says they’re closed!

*updated as parts were dispatched on time! 5*
