    Hello guys,

    here in Italy is the same story :
    Jewell trigger - Usa prize: about 190/200 Usd.
    Jewell trigger - Italy prize: 350 euros ....

    I have purchased a lot of items from the States, for my rifles (Rem700 ), like stocks, Harris bipods, mounts/rings, Leupold optics, dies, ecc.
    ... but .... i can't find a shop who can send me a Jewell HVRTS trigger for my Remmys .

    A lot of shops, said simply: "we don't ship Out from Usa", others say they need an "import license" .... but my question is:

    If i can buy (for example): a "rifle-basix" trigger, and they will send me without any problem .... WHY ... the Jewell no ? ...


    ... really would like to live in the States ...

    Very risky to export gun parts. Big fines.

    A+! Lots of forms to fill out , decisions by bureaucrats to be made, export license to be granted, and taxes to be paid for exporting. Then there is the 'over seas' shipping. The 'dollars' must not 'add-up' for "Jewell" or they would be exporting. Bt the way,,, WELCOME LRH!
