Exporting to the USA

us flag.webp

      Before we can start the export process you must tell us what international airport is nearest to you or what international you wish the rifle sent to.,we cannot get an export price from our export agent without this information.

      We will then give you the export cost and this will be added to the total sale cost


                 Cost of Rifle say  £1000.00  plus the export cost say £350 so the total cost is £1,350. This cost must be paid before we can continue to export.  We only require the purchase price of the sold item,  the export fee must be paid direct to our Export Agent   

           Once you have purchased one of our Rifles including export cost to our Export Agent ,  we will issue the USA importer of your rifle a letter stating that the rifle has been in the Uk for five years. We will send the original letter to the USA importer and a dated letter stating that the firearm was stored in the UK for the "last five years". This is a BATFE USA import requirement.

 We high recommend   as your USA Importer of your rifle as they have the 'know how ' to navigate the ATF System and fill-in all the ATF  forms correctly.  We have never had any firearm arm rejected using Simpsons Ltd.

            At this point we will take your rifle to our export agent and transfer it to him, At this point the export agent takes control of the whole process.

      We will also send your USA importer a copy of the purchase receipt ( rifle purchase price only with no export cost) as this is need by the importer to get a ATF F6 IMPORT FORM ( below PDF File)


                                                     ATF F6 IMPORT FORM


     The importer into the USA will always request an invoice because the ATF F6 import permit application requires the value of the sale.  

     Once these documents in hand, the importer will type up the F6 import permit application and submit it to BATFE Imports Branch in Martinsburg, WV.

     It should be approved inside 30 days. Once approved, At this stage the importer will require payment for there services. Once the importer has been paid, The importer will supply the approved F6 permit to the exporter. He can then proceed with the export process. The new owner of the gun will be required to fill out an End User Undertaking, (EUU), for the exporter



                                         END USER UNDERTAKING FORM   EUU






Once he has it and the export license in order, he can ship to a broker in the USA who will clear it through U.S. Customs and Border Protection, (CBP), and ship it on  for processing in the USA. All export forwarding fees should be collected directly from the new owner

When the rifle arrives in the USA there will be one more invoice to pay  for broker services, Customs duty and carriage from the arriving airport to the importer and then from there to the owners FFL dealer of the new owners choosing. Once paid in full the ship the rifle to the FFL in the new owners town for pickup by the new owner

Weapons must comply with certain requirements and conditions on, or prior to, import into Australia and these are referred to as ‘tests’.

In addition to these tests, permission to import must also be issued by the relevant permit issuing body.  The permit issuing body may be the Police or Customs and Border Protection.

Some weapons are subject to the Police certification test. Weapons subject to the Police certification test do not require written permission to import from Customs and Border protection, however, they do require Police approval in the form of a B709B Form - Importation of Weapons - Police Certification under the Police certification test.  




Importing Firearms into Austraila


 Export to the Channel Islands


All firearms that do require shipping to ANY of the UK Channel Islands must have a import licence from there jurisdiction or Law Enforcement Agency prior to purchasing any firearm from the UK.. 


 No product offered for sale by us will be knowingly shipped or transferred to a person in any jurisdiction where it is unlawful to receive or possess such product.

British Customs and Boarder force will require a copy of the invoice of the firearm being Exported from the UK for taxation purposes. 

  Northern Ireland


    We do export to Northern Ireland by Parcelforce,  but only to an Northern Ireland RFD or a Northern Ireland resident and the RFD acting as his/her RFD behalf.

     We do NOT sell via Northern Ireland RFD to any resident who lives in Southern Ireland, so the paper train for us stops in Northern Ireland RFD gun register. 

      In other words as far as we are concerned the end user is a resident in Northern Ireland.

Exporting to The Republic of Ireland   (Southern  Ireland)


      The Republic of Ireland   (Southern  Ireland) is a full member of the EU and all Firearms will require an export licence as it comes under the EU Council Regulation (EU) 258/2012 and Council Directive (91/477/EEC).  
      Importing directly into 
The Republic of Ireland  (Southern  Ireland) import taxes and VAT will be applied.

Exporting to  The EU  (General rules)


        We will be able to fly the gun(S) to arrival  Airport Destination .
Subject to the airline accepting the booking once we have produced to them all documentation and they have obtained the appropriate OK’s to forward from destination.

Please note since Leaving the EU many things have changed and many European Countries including the UK require firearms be marked in accordance with article 4(1) of directive 91/477/EEC (attached)

     Please check with your local authorities to confirm if they require these new markings as each country has different rules on entry .

     You or your dealers (if you appoint one) will need to make arrangements with the airline and the local police authorities/customs to clear the goods and collect on arrival.

      If you wish to do this yourself on landing and not appoint any one to act on your behalf, please check that you are allowed to do this yourself as some airports insist that a customs broker is appointed.

     If you do decide to use a dealers please ensure they aware the goods are to arrival airport only and will then require clearance etc, some dealers do not handle this side of things.

Please also note that since Brexit UK is no longer in the EU and upon import you will be liable for the airlines local handling fees, and possibly lock-up fees, you will also be liable for duties and taxes.

     If your purchase is UK or EU origin and paperwork bears an official “origin Statement” then your goods will be duty free but VAT will still be applicable.

     The approximate price currently to fly them from London to arrival airport between £550 -£750 (excluding insurance) Insurance if required is a Min of £45 or .85% of the insured value,  I would  suggest we use this as airline T&C's are very poor.

 Please note this price is subject to final pieces and weights and the airline used and airport of destination.

In order to apply for a licence you must supply an import permit .
End User undertaking (will be supplied once you supplied the import permit)  

Please note UK export Licences are currently taking 6-12 weeks.

IF the gun you purchase or any accessories etc happen to be of USA origin or manufacture then we  also have to obtain US re-export approval this is £85.00 and can take 2-3 months to obtain

   Please note : shipments do require a UK export licence
