    In response to our query from the ATF.

    The Gun Control Act (GCA), title 18, U.S.C. 921(a)(16), defines “antique firearm” as:

    (A) any firearm (including any firearm with a matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap, or similar type of ignition system) manufactured in or before 1898; or
    (B) any replica of any firearm described in subparagraph (A) if such replica—(i) is not designed or redesigned for using rim fire or conventional centerfire fixed ammunition, or (ii) uses rim fire or conventional centerfire fixed ammunition which is no longer manufactured in the United States and which is not readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade; or
    (C) any muzzle loading rifle, muzzle loading shotgun, or muzzle loading pistol, which is designed to use black powder, or a black powder substitute, and which cannot use fixed ammunition….

    The GCA specifically exempts “antique firearms” from the definition of “firearm” and, therefore, the importation of antique firearms is not regulated by the GCA. Pursuant to Title 27, C.F.R. 478.115(c), antique firearms may be imported into the United States without the ATF Form 6 permit application or any other documentation from this office. However, the importer of the antique firearm(s) must provide U.S. Customs officials with a Certificate of Authenticity or other satisfactory documentation signed by the foreign seller/source if the antique firearm’s year of manufacture is not visibly marked on the firearm. See the enclosed ATF I 5330.16 for further details.

    I hope this helps... If we can provide the required documentation permanent importation on Antique firearms will not require the importers markings to be engraved on the firearm.

    Can this be used to send guns for warranty work? I don't see why not but a clear yes or no would be great.

    Yes, we now have that ability. Should you not be able to get the work done in Canada, we will make it happen south of the border.

    My concern is more the reputation for sucking that a lot of Canadian warranty centers have. For instance I have a Ruger revolver that is likely going to need work but rather than deal with Snapshots I would like to send it directly to Ruger in the US.

    If the firearm is purchased from us we will ship it directly back to the Manufacturer for warranty work, in this case you can use this service and your firearm will go to Ruger in Prescott which is about 3 1/2 hours away from us. If you are having issues, the Manufacturer is always the best place to send it. If it can't be easily fixed they will replace it. Should that happen we will also look after the transfers and export to get it back in your hands.

    Have a great weekend.

    (tried to ask this of Amber, but my email must have gone into the abyss)

    What would be the process for this? Original owner or his estate get an ATT and send you the 12.6 firearm, you export and forward to the gunsmith, gunsmith does the work and sends it back to you, you change the registration to restricted and register to the new owner and send to him?

    I'm guessing there is not going to be any requirement that the original barrel is destroyed - can be stored in the US in case the laws ever change for the better? (Ha! I know!)

    Anything I'm missing?

    How much would it cost to permanently move a firearm from Canada to States one way.

    For example, if the Liberal government really deploy a AR ban and do mass confiscation , I would just give my AR to my friend down the south.
