    I was thinking that a importer/exporter of weapons might be able to do it. But for a individual very likely not. Australia has really ramped up their gun restrictions to being really onerous.

    Unless its changed the usa end.....you will need the help of a dealer.
    Most dealers here can help you out .........if not they usually know a dealer that will do it for you.
    In Australia.
    You can do it as joe blow but the red tape needs to be appeased both ends I believe.
    Its not that hard as some make out but it will take time and proper procedures.

    A Ruger #1 may be more cost effective. Just saying...

    Yes indeed, we only let rubbish out!

    I actually imported a Martini from New Zealand which was a nice rifle for $AU 220 but it cost another $AU 875 for all the rotten permits!

    I made contact with an exporter in Australia. He said $200.00 AUS export permit and $200.00 AUS shipping to me in North California. I'd need to find some expensive rifles to make it worth while.
