Upcoming ITAR changes -- new process for international matches?


Recommended Posts

Heads up for anyone in the US planning to shoot overseas in the near future-- the ITAR changes coming down the line and becoming official around mid-March may change how things are done with firearms at US Customs. 


No official specifics yet, but it seems they're going with something more or less what Customs has been doing the past few years rather than the official ITAR/AES process (which I tried once.... major PITA that), but there will probably be some changes here and there.


Foreign shooters coming into the US will still need to get ATF forms and whatnot I believe.

This COULD mean that the rest of the world will have easier access to US firearms and parts. There's a lot of good stuff that don't have local distributors.


Elsewhere there was some concern that Commerce hasn't been as prompt in processing things, as ITAR. Things take a long time, emails go unanswered, etc.
