    The ATF appears to disagree, you can consult their importation guidelines here:
    https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/gu...s-war/download

    "as a licensed manufacturer or licensed importer of firearms, must legibly identify each firearm manufactured or imported"

    The regulations as prescribed by BATF have changed as of January 30th, 2002. In addition to the serial number, manufacturer, country of origin, caliber and model; all permanently imported firearms require the following:


    6. NAME of IMPORTER
    • Must be conspicuously engraved, cast or stamped (impressed) on the firearm frame, receiver, barrel or slide
    Firearms Verification - Gun Control Act Definitions 3
    For firearms imported after January 30, 2002, the engraving, casting or stamping (impressing) of the importer’s name must be to a minimum depth of .003 inch
    7. CITY & STATE of the IMPORTER
    • Must be conspicuously engraved, cast or stamped (impressed) on the firearm frame, receiver, barrel or slide
    • For firearms imported after January 30, 2002, the engraving, casting or stamping (impressing) of the importer’s city and state must be to a minimum depth of .003 inch
    NOTE: The importer must ensure that these marks of identification appear on each firearm. If the manufacturer did not mark them, the importer must place the required markings on the firearm within 15 days after their release from Customs and Border Protection custody. The Director, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives may authorize other means of firearms identification upon receipt of a letter application from the importer, submitted in duplicate, showing that such other means of identification is reasonable and will not hinder the effective administration of the regulations.

    Read the updated regs.

    Full stop importing any firearm into the US nowadays requires an import marking, (unless exempted). They contain

    The data required to be on all non-antique firearms imported to the United States after the passing of the GCA in 1968 are as follows:

    1. Serial number: This number cannot duplicate any previous one used by the importer. Must appear on the frame or receiver. Must use Roman letters and Arabic numerals (no Greek, Cyrillic, etc).
    2. Name of Manufacturer
    3. Country of Origin
    4. Model Designation
    5. Caliber
    6. Name of Importer
    7. City & State of Importer


    What IRG is clarifying is that for US customers exporting a firearm to Canada for Custom work, and afterwards when it is being reimported back into the US. That IRG don't need to put a IRUNGUNS Import mark on the firearm when it comes back.

    Thank you Chillyrabbit for helping with the clarification. We thought we did a good job of trying to explain that but sometimes we realize we dont always come across clearly :-) "Yes, we can also do temp exports to Canada and return the firearms to the US as well. Everything works the same way although your US customers will be charged in Canadian funds so there is a bit of a savings there. As well the firearms returning to the US will not need to be engraved before returning to the customer."

    Out of curiosity, if a US made firearm is exported to Canada, and later the owner imports the firearm to the USA when they relocate to live in the USA, will the US made firearm require an importation stamp??

    Class 3 is NFA are you referring to re-barreling prohibited firearms that are currently in Canada that will require temp export to the US? If so, yes we can do that as well.

    Yes, that is correct. If you are permanently importing the firearm into the US we are required to engrave the importers makings. A good example is Glock. Every Glock that is imported into the US from Austria has Glock importers markings on the receiver. We use the latest laser technology to ensure it looks amazing when you receive it.
