Good memory, Brent. I built the Paraordnance .45 myself and have the receipts for at least the receiver and slide, but I don't know if those would work in place of the 4457. I would like to bring it back when I finally give up my life in Kenya because it is wonderfully accurate. It's high cap magazines are, of course, now illegal in California, unless the Supreme Court starts overturning our idiotic gun laws.

I do have a .470 that Butch Searcy built for me but will eventually sell that to a friend when I hang up the dart gun for good.

LGF,
I can't except that grade for a perfect score. I was thinking a .45 double rifle, but it was your .470 that I was remembering.

Receipts for the receiver would work. THAT is the legal "gun" part.

Come to think of it, I did inquire about this from the ATF a few years ago and was told that to bring the pistol back without the 4457, I would need to get import permission (Form 6) from them.

Please don't bite off my head.
The country I live in has the firearm registered to the owners name.
There is proof of ownership.
Hey, I did not think it up.
O.M

LGF, if the receipt for the receiver is USA, then you aren't importing at all. I don't think they could stick that on you. I can think of another work around too, but the simplest would be to insist that it's "American By Birth". smile

4457s can also be useful in proving prior ownership after traveling with expensive watches, camera equipment, etc, basically anything with a serial number. Unlike guns, you do not need to prove prior ownership to bring these items back into the US, but may need 4457s to avoid paying import duty on them.

Be aware that some countries consider the 4457 to be your US issued permit to own the gun. They cannot wrap their heads around the fact that US citizens don't need permits to own a firearm.

US Customs considers the form 4457 good for life but South Africa requires that it be dated in the same calendar year as you are traveling.

It pays to carefully check the regulations before traveling. The firearm could be confiscated and you could spend some time in a foreign jail.

I think what got off with me so bad was the guy in the blue uniform telling me we had to get all these guns going out of the country registered...Geo
