Has anyone any experience with bringing in parts, not a firearm, not ammunition, from the EU?
More specifically, I have Jewell BR trigger for the Remington 700 for sale in Ireland. Someone from the UK saw my price and asked if I would ship to the UK. FWIW, I cannot believe the price in the UK - over 300 Sterling! That's almost 2.5 the US price. A bit much if you ask me. No wonder people are looking at RifleBasix.
Anyhow, can an item like a trigger, with no serial numbers, LEGALLY, be simply put in a box and mailed to someone in the UK? Any links would be appreciated.
I've sent plenty of boxes of clothes, biscuits, and taytos to the nieces and nephews over the years so I am no stranger to the PO!
What's the process on the receiver's end? How about if the package has to go to a dealer? How much do they get as middleman?
Also, if anyone knows, whether a firearm part, like a trigger, is considered a firearm, for shipping purposes?
Not looking to spend a lot of time researching laws, customs, and dealers. Just trying to help some one out across the water.
Thanks for your time and constructive feedback.
