Mailing Guns

say one was to find a particular firearm that is completely legal to have in the US (no machine guns), floating around in a 3rd world country that you can trade for a pig....is there any legal way one could ship it back to the US? let me make this perfectly clear: this firearm is nothing special, lets call it a winchester 1894 30-30.

There are companies that do offer import services. This is complicated and can be expensive.

Best option is to talk to one about the details of your particular case.
Also note that some types of guns other than full-auto are not importable for various reasons, and imports from some countries are prohibited.

Cherry's offer import services:

Not only does it need to go through a legal importer, it's quite likely you will need to go through a legal exporter as well. Make sure the seller either already has the current licenses and permits to export, or plan on spending money and time getting them yourself.

Yep. The details are here. Many dealers won't want to incur this kind of overhead.

Mauser, can you give us more specifics?

Well, this one went badly, quickly. We don't discuss breaking laws, even those of other countries.
