    It looks like there is a value restriction of $100 for shipping "firearm parts" to canada, otherwise an export permit is required. Probably not worth the hassle at this point, and its probably not a good idea to ship as "molded plastic pieces", since anyone with half a brain can see that they are gun stocks...

    So, I guess it might depend on the value of the stock set, but what if it was shipped in two packages, as firearm parts, at $100 each? Just a thought...

    Decided it wasn't worth the risk/hassle and refunded my customer.

    The following word for word text might help with export issues to allowable destinations. >>>>> International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)22 CFR Section 123.17 Exports of firearms and ammunition. (a) Except as provided in Section 126.1 of this subchapter, District Directors of customs shall permit the export without a license of components and parts for Category 1 (a) firearms, except barrels, cylinders, receivers (frames) or complete breech mechanisms when the total value does not exceed $100 wholesale in any transaction. If in doubt "google it". Kind regards. Phil.
