Need some advice please.
I have been given a rifle, a .300 Holland & Holland (bolt action), by my elderly father in South Africa. I am going over in May 2015 for a weeks hunting and was looking to bring it back with me. Not quiet sure how I will sort out the transfer in South Africa with the SA Police but will somehow. I have a slot for a open slot for a 300 win mag and will speak to the police and see about a one for one variation to a 300 H&H but I am not sure on the import tax situation or import license requirements bring a rifle in from South Africa. If the rifle is a gift or "early inheritance" what do I need to do to get the rifle back into the UK with me ?
