    Help needed with U.S.A export

    Can anyone help me with the export of a magazine for a SIG/SAUER SHR970 magazine from the USA. My sister in law has it as the guy who had it wouldn't export, she lives in Boston. It's not a military magazine just a normal 3x capacity but UPS, Fedex say they won't take it. Help please.

    Were I the devious sort...

    Disassemble the magazine if possible.

    Ship the body Fed Ex,
    The spring and follower UPS

    Don't be so explicit as to what the "spring" is for, or the "Sauer box".~Muir

    Would it be legal for my parents to bring it back when they visit?

    I wonder.

    I installed a MagPul Precision Sniper Stock on my AR-10 last night and in the upper right corner of the instruction sheet was a sticker that said that providing that sheet of instructions to a foreign national would fall under the laws of exporting weapons, munitions, and military technology. In other words, they are getting VERY strict.~Muir

    I've brought mags back from the US. Planning on bringing back lots of bits next time I visit.
