    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.
