wont ship a rail or rings to canada

i hate how swfa wont ship a mount and rings to me cause im in canada, i really wanted to get a egw base and the ss rings but they wont ship to me and i cant find a place in canada where i can even get a base that isnt like 200 dolars. its rediculous.

Did you try calling the EGW makers directly?

Re: wont ship a rail or rings to canada

Are the NEAR Manufacturing bases what you mean by "like 200 dolars" Where's your "BUY CANADIAN" patriotism? I think their bases are good enough that I bought one for my 338-378 Sako TRGS. Ridiculous? Certainly!

This site has an article about SWFA's export policies and why they don't ship to Canada:

Midway UK-Reloading,shooting,gunsmithing,gun,air gun,optics,hunting,black powder,bullet,ammunition,brass,case,binoculars,sco pe,knife,boots,ATV equipment,tent,rifle,pistol,revolver sells egw bases and rings from various manufacturers. I don't know how that would work out for cost with shipping but maybe worth a look.

It used to be easy to get stuff into Canada for us regular folks (i.e. don't have import permit) but in recent years US Homeland Security has really tightened things down on getting things out of the States. Canadian govt has no issues with us bringing stuff over, it's Homeland Security.

Re: wont ship a rail or rings to canada

Its just frusterating that I can't get affordable parts cause I'm canadian. I would buy from a canadian manufacturer if I could afford it, one reason I eanted to order from swfa is because I could get the egw base and the ss rings for around 100 to my door. Hunting season is coming quickly and I can't afford much more than that.
