Thread: Buying scopes in America

    Buying scopes in America

    Hi everyone, My wife is going to New York next month on business and I happened to stumble across a gun store online which is just down the road from where she is staying. Does anyone know if she can buy a scope for me and bring it home in her suitcase? I am not after any illuminated reticle or other fancy stuff, just a Nikon Monarch X.
    Many thanks
    Steve

    Buy what you like as long as it does not have to go on your ticket, I usually buy scopes, knives and hunting clothes.

    i am not sure but i think this is not quite true, you can only buy a certain value before having to declare it.. not sure of the $ value but make sure you check

    scopes from america

    Yes she can but most items over a certain value attract duty-you may get away without declaring it-check customs site on the internet.additionally the yanks also prohibit the exportation of certain items like scopes particularly if they have a mil dot reticule.good luck.richard.
