    Hi there guys,

    I'm looking for a number of Bell & Carlson stocks which are in high demand in Australia, rifle-accuracy and every other distributor can't manage to export to us in Australia.
    They don't have the right papers and authority to do it, im guessing.
    So, what i thought was, if i was to get B&C to send the stocks to a exporter in the US to then send them over to me in Australia.
    This method will work, I don't require any paper work on my end, just on the US end for the government as there being declared as a 'military article' or something.

    Does anybody know of a shop, website or anything i can get in contact with who has the authority to export these stocks?

    Cheers guys
    Dan

    Hi Mo,

    How much would you charge to get a Bell & Carlson stock to me?
    Lets say in just a black finish
    Inletted for remington 700 BDL, vertical grip stock, aswell as just the standard medalist one?

    Cheers mate

    Pretty large fines if you get caught exporting restricted items without a permit. REALLY large.

    I wouldn't charge you anything, but actually shipping. So Len is a stock a restricted item? If it is I guess I'll skip out on my offer.

    Len checked with postmaster today. He said I can ship the stock, that it is not restricted. I ask him to double check, and he said it was okay...

    Stocks are not restricted items,i had a chat to one of the Mcmillan staff only a couple of weeks ago and they explained to me that stocks weren't restricted,they have sent me three stocks over the last year.
    I highly doubt one of the biggest companies in the world of aftermarket stocks and accessories would jeopardize their business to send me a couple of stocks, Downunder.Almost all gun parts are allowed so long as they are valued at or under $100us, anything above that requires the correct permits and paperwork.Things like bottom metals can be exported, so long as it is shipped without the magazine, i was told that the trigger guard attaches to the stock so it is exempt.
    Maybe us Aussie's should be exempt from all the restrictions:D,we are on the same team after all...even more so now as our brave soldiers will be sharing the same uniform as the U.S . Cheers fella's have a great day.
