Need expertise:

Is it legal to ship a Pre Ban Hi Capacity Magazine overseas?

    Depends on the nation. Exporting is NOT the problem, but importation at the other end. Canada and England for example wouldn't let it in.
    Check with the country you are shipping to.

    Well, exporting could be a problem too. Under the Arms Export Control Act of 1976, the president determines exactly what articles are on the list of prohibited items. I have no idea how to find out what items are currently on the list. However, the penalty for violating this law are so onerous ($1,000,000 fine, 10 years in prison) that no one who is not in the arms business would be stupid enough to risk getting involved in this area.

    The Arms Control Export Act which Neal mentions is regulated by the Department of State (NOT THE BATF). The list is very long and involved and takes in everything from aircraft carriers down to rifle scopes. It is subject to a great deal of interpitation: Military firearms parts and components need an export license. A magazine for an M16 or Beretta 92 will probably need to be licensed while a magazine for a Ruger 10-22 will not. You can contact the Department of State at 703-875-6644.

    Keep it here anyhow, If you have ever been to some of the "flea markets' in Belgium you can get whatever there, If not let them pick up what they need at home..All I see going on overseas is the USA paying for the party with troops and equipment and everyone else busy hanging around waiting for something to happen. WE let the Russians "take" Berlin when WE made it safe enough that they could do so without getting wiped out...Patton was right

    If I have offended you Sorry that you feel offended but not sorry for my opinion but I been there done that and am a bit tired of the USA paying the bill for the world community and "investing" in our enemies

    If we are going get involved all the way in Iraq (or anywhere else) its got to be all the way, not another SE asia limited war where we are the ones limited Funny thing I havent trusted many politicians but Rumsfeld is one that I do..

    Happy new Year to All
