Ive been reading the posting for shipping. Im still a bit unclear as to what it takes to ship a 1918 Model 92 to Canada.

Any help will be appreciated.

Did you read this series of posts. I think there are 2 different post reguarding this issue. I was trying to find the way to get a rifle from Canada but I think both questions were answered.

It is very easy shipping a modern rifle to Canada Rex. I have had several shipped up to me the last couple years. In my instance, I have a dealer up here that imports from an FFL dealer in Washington State. I just have the seller mail the rifle from his FFL to my FFL with the FFL paperwork I send him, and once it arrives at my FFL, my dealer brings it up to Canada, then puts it in the mail to me up here.

On your end, just whatever it cost for your FFL to mail the gun to his FFL. On my end, there are extra costs involved which I must incur. It is a bit costly, but worth it sometimes depending on the rifle. This includes for me a $250 importing fee, 5% tax on the rifle if you can believe that, and the cost of my dealer in Alberta to ship to me once he gets the rifle.

Whats the 5 % tax for?As long as the firearm is made in the U.S.A. the free trade agreement between Canada and the United States allows goods to go tax and duty free across border.

Is the tax a Provincial sales tax?If so ,I can understand it having to be paid.

I have also used Matt's method for importing a Winchester from Leroy Merz. It is a smooth and no-worries way to go.
