    Try Blue Logistics.

    I know they handle the importing of guns into SA. I'm sure they can handle the export.

    Unfortunately very true and my experience as well.

    The problem was not on the Aus side, it was on the SA side. To import rifles into Aus is easy, to export them from SA is a headache of note, with a lot of the headache involving being completely ignored by tbe relevant authorities & dealers.

    Have you done it? I have two rifles in SA that I thought I’d bring over at some point. Getting the PTA etc this side isn’t difficult, as you said.

    Even if it cost me $1000 a gun to bring over, it’s cheaper than replacing them with scopes, slings etc.
    Not all who wander are lost.

    Hi Skaaphaas

    That was back in 2007 when all sorts of nonsense was going on with firearm ownership in SA.

    Not sure what it is like now.

    In the end I ran out of time and patience and sold the rifles there.

    An old single shot Remington bolt action ln .22lr & an old Lee Enfield No.1 Mk111 so not very valuable, but they had a lot of sentimental value to me, having been my father's & having been tne first rifles I ever used.

    How have you settled in here & what State are you living in?
