Exporting weapons without a licence

What is the crime for Thailand and US for exporting weapons without a license?
Can a licensed gun dealer sell a weapon to a man in Thailand? How a man from Thailand can ask to ship a gun to his country and what procedure should he go through?

We can't send firearms out of the U.S. without an export license. (At least, not legally.)

The procedure to sell a firearm to someone in Thailand would be to find a licensed exporter and ship the firearm through that agent.

You didn't give details but this has a strong aroma to it. You're looking at either a scam or a set-up on these international internet firearms deals. At best you never see your money, at worst get to spend some time sharing a small room with "Bubba" or "Leroy". GW

I don't have a clue what the firearms laws in Thailand are like, but such a sale would need to comply with all applicable laws. On the US end, that means going through a licensed exporter. I don't know this for sure, but I think it's a solid guess that the dealer in Thailand would have to have some kind of license to import the firearm, as well.

Let's call this one "asked and answered."
