Default Help needed with factory letter UK payment

Hi. Iím from the UK and have just acquired a very nice Smith & Wesson 1st model Double action with target sights and factory case photos in my other post. My problem is getting a factory letter I have been online and completed the form but payment has to be made by check or postal money order in US funds, I can get a bank check but that will be in pounds I can do a bank transfer but need account details. Does anyone know how I can do this Iím sure there are many international owners of Smith & Wesson who would like letters both Colt and Winchester accept credit cards for their letters but the Smith & Wesson Historical Foundation seem to make it difficult any help / advice would be great. Many thanks Richard.

Go to the bank and purchase a bank check in US dollars.
They can do the conversion at the bank.
Send it off to SW.
They will send the letter to you.

Interesting question. I'm sure you're not the first to face this issue. When I get Webley letters from the UK, Richard Milner accepts credit cards, so that makes it easy. I wonder whether the SWHF is able to accept Paypal, which should be easy to set up.

Send a PM to Don, forum handle "Club Gun Fan". He works with Roy on the letters and is probably with whom you need to discuss this.

We are looking into Paypal at this time. Will take us a little time to set up. I know that this doesn't help today, but should in the future.
