    I found a shotgun I really like at a dealer in England. What hoops do I have to go thru to get this gun to my local dealer? What will all this cost(approximate idea.) What good & bad things do I look for? Anyone out there(or recommended)to help with this? Thanks to all for the great advise provided.

    Call LeRoy's Big Valley Gun Works in Glasgow, MT.

    I used them both to export out of the USA and into the USA. Not expensive either.

    Here's their info:

    You will need to find an FFL with a import/export license. The duty on a shotgun is 2.6%($130 on $5K gun) + there will be customs fees added by the customs broker used. Sending 1 gun can be expensive as compared to spreading cost(broker fee) over a shipment of several guns.

    RunGunIPSC: If you are in Montana, then do as I suggested. They are fair and honest.

    They are a Class III exporter/importer.
