PayPal is close to banning payment for lasers. Be careful making a claim, and try not to mention lasers, so it doesn't ruin it for the rest of us.

But try the seller, first. It is their job to get the item to you. you have no control over customs... in theory. It won't hurt to try.

Have a look on Ebay Australia, They have heaps on there ready to go shipped from within Aus

I would be sort of careful buying higher powered lasers though unless it's on the forum here
As you'll be waaaay overcharged for something totally under-spec... As I said have a look on Ebay they have many "1mW" ones to choose from and they'll all be over spec

try the seller first then try with ebay. ebay will side with you if you have proof they where taken and that the seller wasn't any help if that ends up being the case.

Yeah, your best bet is to buy a JAD (just add diode) kit then buy a M140 diode from DTR or something similar.
