    As far as CAD pricing on the Canadian site might be nice but not a bother really either way.

I wish you could make it simpler for us as I would love to support you. The exchange rate is really not a big deal to get sorted out, but the various stages of customs and handling charges leaves the end user doing a lot of math to figure out what the landed costs will be.

    Thanks Irunguns. Hoping to support you in the future.
    The extra costs you mention are included in the purchase price. When you check out from either website the only additional charge is GST of 5% based on the Canadian value and Canadian shipping to your door. All duties, import charges, magazine compliance, brokerage and importation are included in the purchase price.


    Flat rate shipping to Canada is 25.00USD on all accessory and ammunition orders regardless of quantities ordered. Firearms are exported to Canada at a flat rate of 25.00USD per firearm.

    You don't just advertise in US dollars, you sell retail sales in US dollars on a Canadian website in Canada. Canada is a sovereign nation with its own currency. You should use it.

    Like it was mentioned already few times on this thread. IRG don't want to deal with the exchange. They let customers deal with it. Just imagine this, they buy their inventories in USD, convert it to CAD, then convert it back to USD. When customers deal with the exchange, guess what they can stay in USD and no need to deal with the exchange. Also, advertising in USD gives illusion that the price apppears lower as our CAD stinks now.

    Oddly enough even the used firearms that IRG has in Canada are USD prices...

    They must not have a CDN bank account, wonder if they dodge a lot of CDN taxes

    I work for an automotive parts manufacturing company; we have US suppliers that export directly to us. All pricing and transactions are in US $. If you sell something, you set the terms of sale; such is their right to do also. While I have never dealt with them, I appreciate that they have gone the extra mile to do all of the export stuff that so many US dealers have not done; and they and others provide options and availability that we would not otherwise have.

    Same for me
