The two Canadian gunsmiths mentioned on this site would be my choices for a couple of Parker restocking projects, depending on their availability. Can a pre 1898 shotgun be sent to them in Canada with less than the normal hassles or is "a gun a gun" when shipping across the borders.

Pre-1898 guns can legally be shipped across borders without an importer/exporter according to US law. I am not sure of the specifics for Canada but you still need to clear Customs on both sides and that at times requires a Customs agent which adds a fair bit of cost. You might try contacting these fine fellows and see what they would charge to clear the border, they have been very cost effective for my to use bringing guns out of Canada:

George, I have had one wait like that with a gun headed to our friend Gil a couple years ago. The other times I have used them it has been more like 60 days start to finish, which is fine. However, I spoke to someone today who just did one or two and it was under three weeks.

I don't like it when they are slow but they are the best at marking discreetly the required engraving of importer.

For what it's worth, the Fox I just received has no import mark at all. That's plus to me...Geo

George, Borderview did one that took the new owner six months to find. LOL

I think we all think it's a bonus.

I sounds like sending a pre 1899 gun to Canada and getting it back is not any more simple than if it were a modern gun. Am I mistaken?

No permits, FFL holders, back ground checks or markings required for pre-1898 guns. You still need to clear Customs though, which may or may not require a broker.
