    Anyone know how to go about shipping a bolt action rifle to a buyer in Canada? Thanks Jon

    If it were me, I would talk directly with a local FFl dealer that knows exactly what the laws for international shipping of guns are. Canada has very strict guns laws and registration requirements. Realistically you might do with less hassle to sell locally.

    I'd worry about getting the proper export and import permits. I'd consult an actual exporter or SOT, they's have the best ideas.

    It is VERY unlikely that a local FFL will even have a clue since that is NOT what they do. You will need to look up firearms exporters (this is their job) and talk to them. I don't think it is very hard but is time/paperwork consuming and can be costly.

    Yeah I've made the rounds to the local ffl's already and they like me had no clue. Anyone know of a good firearms exporter?
