    Does anyone know if there is a legal problem to send a gun part for a shotgun to a person in Canada? ATF says they do not have a problem with it but said the Department of Commerce regulates "exporting". Thanks in advance.

    Brownells Website:

    There are a number of items which Brownells sells which need US State Department approval and an export license before they can be shipped out of the country. The regulations are complex and constantly changing but our staff is here to help you understand what is needed and will gladly work with you to correctly accomplish the task.

    Generally speaking, items which usually need a license are:

    •Frames

    •Receivers

    •Barrels

    •Barrel Liners

    •Various other gun parts such as triggers, sears, ejectors, magazine tubes, scopes, and other items if the ordered amount is over $100.00 US.

    Gun Accessories Order Information

    Barrel Shipment Policy: Barrels may not be shipped outside of the U.S.A.

    Many of our items are classified as Gun Parts. There are strictly enforced rules that go along with these parts.

    A Gun Part is “any item necessary to the operation of a weapon”. Many parts fall within this category, such as triggers, magazines, grips and barrels.

    Current Regulations require An Export License for all Gun Part orders exceeding $100 (U.S.) WE CAN NOT SHIP any orders over $100 U.S for gun parts.


    --------------------------------------


    Numrich Gun Parts

    If you are placing an order for shipment outside of the United States, please review the following information regarding foreign orders.

    • As of April 1 2008, we will no longer accept export orders where the value of the parts exceeds $100 or that contain a restricted part, requiring an export license from the U.S. Department of State or an import license from the country of destination.

    • All foreign orders are shipped via the United States Postal Service and all foreign orders are subject to a $25.00 export handling fee in addition to our regular shipping charges.

    • Certain parts are restricted for export by the United States Government, including barrels, barrel blanks, bolt assemblies, cylinders, receivers, frames, bolts, and high capacity magazines.
