Shipping gun-parts overseas

Hello there

Remembering a topic about pistols a while back, and thought you might be able to help with a question.

Looking for some upgrades for my .22 1911 - and the best option seems to be cwaccessories.com - but they dont ship overseas.

Anyone know what it takes to get a spring, guide rod and barrel bushing shipped from the USA to Europe?

OP - Have you considered using a vendor that also operates over on your side of the pond?

For example, Brownells has European versions of their websites as well ( http://www.brownells.com/aspx/genera...nal_Sales.aspx ).

I have, but its been difficult to find dealers, as its pretty much custom parts CWA and ZRTS makes for the gun.

^ That's a really bad idea. Noble, but not worth it. Violating ITAR can result in hefty fines and/or federal prison time.


OP - That's unfortunate if you really want those parts. Have you contacted the cwa vendor directly (e-mail/phone) and asked them about any other options?

Without a vendor in your neck of the woods you might be SOL. You could explore the idea of completing import/export paperwork and play the waiting game, unless I missed something in the fine print...

Oh, i wasnt volunteering

More thinking outloud...in that my limited understanding of ITAR is that it was more focused on military application and/or complete firearms, not necessarily replacement parts in privately held situations.

EDIT...found a good thread here http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...Seller-Warning basically verifying that anything that can be used in war is a no-no.

Ive found out, getting them into Denmark shouldnt be a problem, as long as it isnt vital parts - frame, barrel or slide.

Ive writting to CWA, but havent gotten a reply yet.
