We’ve been getting more and more inquiries about stocks from customers outside of the US, and the answer is Yes! We can ship the Versatile Biathlon Stock to international customers, however there is some extra paperwork to be done by both the customer and Lost Nation R&D. Here is a quick guide to what is required:
Our rifle stock is classified as a ‘significant firearm part’ by the United States government, which places it under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). What this means, is that for orders valued over $500 to canada, or over $100 to any other country, we must submit a DDTC export license.
When we submit an export license for approval with the US DDTC we need the following from you:
- Signed Purchase Order – This is a dated and signed document that clearly states what, and how many products you are ordering from us. You can use a template of your own, or use this template.
- Import Permit or Authorization letter – Each country has different regulations on the import of firearms parts. Some require you to obtain an import permit from the authorities, some do not. You will have to contact your local state or federal government to determine your regulation, and obtain the proper papers. Even if your country does not require a permit, we need a signed letter from your local authorities stating that you do not require a permit. Basically, The US government won’t let us send you something without proof that you can legally possess it in your country.
- End Use Letter – This is a short letter from you, the customer, addressed to Lost Nation R & D, stating your intended use of the stock. Download example letter here.
Once these items are received, we will fill out our own forms and submit the entire package to the DDTC for approval. Once submitted, the approval process can take anywhere from 3 days 1-2 weeks. As soon as we get the approved license back from DDTC, we can ship your stock!
