Guns from USA to Canada

I just purchased 10 rifles from a Rock Island Gun Auction in the USA.

I have shipped them to a gun exporter in the USA and will be importing them into Canada.

lets see how this all goes.

here is a list of what I bought

-Franchi Veloce Grade II Shotgun 20 gauge over under

-Charles Daly NRA Diamond IV shotgun 20 gauge over under

-Mauser 98 bolt action rifle with P.O. Ackley 450 Marlin Barrel

-Browning A-Bolt Eclipse 30-06 Boss

-Stoeger model 3000 semi-automatic shotgun

-Stevens model 612 Goldwing side by side shotgun

-Mossberg Silver Reserve 28 gauge over/under shotgun

-Mossberg Silver Reserve 12 gauge over/under shotgun

-Enfiled Mark 1 no 1 bolt action rifle 303 British

-Mossberg Maverick bolt action rifle 243 winchester new

I will be posting my results and costs

Update #1

I am required to apply for a EIPA File number from the Government of Canada.

I applied last night and received an email this morning with my file number (that’s quick for dealing with the federal government)

More results coming soon

Update #2

I was required to apply online for a GCkey (simple online process)

then you must apply to become a EXCOL (Export controls On-line) registered user, this requires a form to be filled out then emailed to the Department of Foreign affairs.

once you do this they email you back with an access code which is needed to log into EXCOL.

once you get the access code you can login and apply for an International import certificate.

this requires you to put in the details of the guns that you are bringing in as well as information about you and the exporter that you have chosen in the USA

I did this and received an approved certificate the next day.

that certificate was then emailed to the Exporter that I choose in the USA.

I am awaiting to hear from them the next steps.

The first shipment of rifles arrived, apparently shotguns need a different permit to export. The shotguns should arrive in the next week.

Worked out to be a lot more then I planned, as the reshipper that I used charged me a huge mark-up on the actual shipping charge.

I used to calculate a shipping price for the 3 boxes that arrived.

the total was $280.00 and I was charged $505.00 + $200 in labour and materials for packing.

They also charged me a $450.00 export license fee (of which their cost was only $50.00)

I will try someone different next time and report my results.

Some of these guns that I do not want are going to be listed on for sale
