Finding a "European" deale who wishes to export is not a problem ( see the many dealer/sellers at E-gun for an example). If they are good and have the experience, they can even tell you the paper-kram involved and how much it will cost extra for this admin work and shipping to the States.

The trick is finding out how to funnel this through the proper receiving FFL dealer in USA....will he do it?....does he have/need an "import" license?...etc, etc....total cost on "our" side of the pond to be added.

1.) I didn't provide the link, if you are talking about the piece written in the Luger forum, SteveM did, however...and 2.) you then need to register and sign-in as a Luger forum member..it appears...before you can read the link that SteveM posted.

I usually open the site via a google search....the top of my page shows a "translate" button once I open it up....does yours?. If not....go to google to open this up or use "
babelfish"...

Even better....I forgot to bring this up....when you open Egun site ( http://egun.de/ )..... there are a number of "flags" on the opening page, right under the words.. "zur Startseite".

Click on the flag that shows up as a combination "British Union Jack / US flag"..... and the site will be converted to English !!

I currently live in Germany and have imported numerous handguns. The key is to find a German dealer that will work with if you are not going to travel yourself. Another important thing to keep in mind is there are several types of pistols that the ATF just plain don't like, the PPK being one of them. The reason being it must have an over-all height of 4"and the PPK only is 3.75". I am not sure if you can get it in via an importer but I doubt it.

I do know that you can bring in Lugers and P-38's but only through an importer which means extra fees and they have to engrave / stamp the gun. Simpson LTD is a good place to start for someone to receive the import. They charge $200 for up to 4 guns and $50 for each additional gun but you still need to find an exporter. On average I would say that you can expect to pay about $100 - $150 per handgun you want to import.
Something I did recently find out is that Belgium conceders WW2 weapons (not counting Machine guns and flamethrowers ) as antiques and free for the purchase of anyone over 18. This does drive the price up a bit though.

Below is a pic that Simpson LTD sent showing how they mark imported Lugers. My guess is that other guns similarly.
