    Could they ship to someone in Europe you know and then get it shipped here?

    Suppose they could. Do you need an import license for Bren mags?

    Yes, you will need an import permit for them.

    I doesn't seem all that many years ago when I was selling boxes of 12 Bren mags in unissued condition for $50 per box (issued ones for $30.00 per box) after I purchased 2200 of them from the NZ Army for 30 cents each. Capt. Peter Laidler (UK) came to visit me when he was doing research for his Bren book and spent two very greasy days going through them all checking manufacturers marks. He found 7 unaltered and very rare (1937-38) Enfield Mk I magazines so I gave him 3 (himself, the Pattern Room, and the Warminster Small Arms School) which he took back to the UK. That was 90 cents very well spent! I later sold two more to UK collectors that he told. I never put a price on them but asked them to make realistic offers and got 300 Quid each for them. I have one still with my 1938 Mk I Bren.

    Unissued tins of 12 mags seem to fetch about $350 at NZ auctions these days.

    Well, this place has several boxes. Link embedded, click on the image.

    No. I'd go nuts sitting on a gun I'm not allowed to bring to a range and shoot. Must be torture.
