    Default Exporting a 25Pdr breech to Canada

    I have been asked about the possible problems of exporting a deactivated breech for a 25pdr to Canada. What should the buyer or shipper have to do to expedite this? Any thoughts please?
    Thanks

    Some say the cup is half empty, while others say it is half full. However, in my opinion both are wrong. The real problem is the cup is too big.

    When I've sent anything like that overseas, I've quoted it as a machine part, which is essentially what it is. Ron

    I'd be highly inclined to use an agent who has experience in such things. UK deactivation may well not be the same as Canadian deactivation.

    Should be very little problem in shipping to Canada as long as the buyer/receiver has a possession and acquisition license. Simply classified by Canada Customs as a single shot rifle, have imported more than one tank cannon the same way and working on another from the UK now.
