    According to the guy that runs the gunshop here, you have to find an FFL holder that has an export license for Canada. The gunshop owner here ended up in the middle of a deal with two old 1873 Winchesters and a very irate auction winner who couldn't understand why he wouldn't "just send 'em" (to Canada). The auction house wanted him to send them too and they wanted their cash (consignment + online fee). He decided to check up on it and found out he would have been committing 3 felonies if he had done so. He finally found a guy in Wyoming who had an export license for Canada. When it was finished, he said he made $15 on the two guns (that sold - on consignment - for $2200). He also decided to open his own shop after this episode.

    Drop down to the Firearm Dealers section.

    If a shotgun you may want to get a quote from Leroy's Big Valley Gun Works. as in the past he has been pretty reasonable.

    acss,

    From Joe's web site above ... great source of information.

    "Shipping Gun Parts to Canada

    Question: I want to buy parts in the US for my firearm and import them into Canada.

    Under USA regulations, suppliers in the United States need an export permit to permanently export firearms and firearm parts to Canada. To get an export permit, they need to include a Canadian import document with their application. It is up to you or your import agent to obtain such a document from the Government of Canada and give it to your supplier.

    Your supplier does not require a Canadian import document for muzzle-loading firearms, antique firearms, pellet guns or BB guns. Neither do they require one for shipments of firearm parts (other than frames, barrels, cylinders, receivers, and complete breech mechanisms) with a total wholesale value of less than $100 US."

    RE: anyone ship one to the states? is it difficult?

    Other then shipping the Canadian side of this is pretty simple as far as paperwork goes, but...

    On the US side, the buyer needs to deal with an FFL who will do the import and a ATF Form 6 has to be completed. Could take 4-6 weeks.

    * This is not the ATF Form 6NIA used for temporary imports by Canadians.

    Drop down to the Firearm Dealers section and select a dealer. Those who do imports into the US will make sure all required paperwork is done.

    Hello bt100ed,

    I just went through the importation process 4-6 weeks ago and it sure was painless.
    I bought a wonderfull BT99 PLUS from a member of this forum and cannot say enough on how nice the person was and how smooth the process was.

    Call Melissa at Prophet River. Her Details are (780)875-0575, info@prophetriver.com.

    She will require your PAL license and place of birth for registration purposes. Details of the gun etc. and she will do the rest. Your gun gets shipped to an FFL Dealer in Montana and then imported into Canada. You will receive your gun by Post.

    Really good people. Try them.

    Hi Shawn,

    They charged me $195 and mentioned that it would be $100 for a second gun.
