    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.

    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.

    My question specifically is about a custom gun that's built by an American gunsmith using a base gun that was manufactured in USA (Colt 1911) and purchased from the USA. The gun will be exported from USA to Canada (by IRG of course) in 2019 as I am the Canadian purchaser. If in the future I decide to move to the USA and take this gun with me, will this gun, which is manufactured in the USA (not Austria like Glock), and customized in the USA by an American gunsmith require stampings that may significantly decrease the value of the pistol?? Or are their provisions for such markings to be more inconspicuous, example on grip frame underneath wooden grip or perhaps laser engraved on bottom of mainspring housing, or perhaps bottom of dust cover due to the unusual value of the pistol??? Basically, does a USA manufactured gun that goes to Canada and then back require import markings???

    Yes, the custom pistol you describe will require import markings. Not all importers engrave the same way, some are much less conspicuous than others.

    I submitted an email to the BAFTE in the US where I asked the following question: "I would like to permanently import some antique firearms to the US. These antiquefirearms were originally manufactured in the US prior to 1899. Would these firearms be subject to import marking regulations?"

    I received a reply from <Imports@usdoj.gov>: "Hi, under the Gun Control Act, antiques are defined, in part, as being manufactured
    in or before 1898. If the gun is an antique, there are no import regulations applicable, thank you."

    Now I am confused. Perhaps the regulations are different fora business as opposed to an individual. Could you point me to the regulations that require IRUNGUNS to permanently mark antique firearms imported from Canada to the US?

    Well I'm not too sure what to say, the Director at the Imports branch of the ATF disagrees with you and they regulate all firearm imports into the U.S. Please forward that email to admin@irunguns.us and we will ask for a written ruling for you and then we will both have it in writing.

    Have a great weekend!!!

    The Director at the Imports Branch does not disagree with me, I just asked a question. He disagrees with the answer I got from one of his employees. It will be interesting to hear what the top of the totem pole has to say.

    Regards

    I was also under the impression that 1898 made guns and earlier were exempt from requiring importers markings.. also can't you get specific exemptions for rare and valuable guns (not sure how the US law defines what makes a gun rare or valuable) or how that would work.
