    Remington 541T

    I am seriously looking to sell my 541T not an overly common firearm in NZ and I don't see there being a big market for them so low prices. However in the USA they usually go for $800-$1000 US. So what do you guys know about selling firearms there. Does anyone know the drama you have to go through to get a rifle out of NZ and what would a buyer have to do to import on into the USA?Is it worth trying or not?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Jeremy

    I know if it's an antique eg older than 100 years or pre-1898 you apparently don't need to have any import paperwork into the states - that's how most of the Long Lees ended up in the US when the Kiwi dollar was 50c to the US last time...

    I have an identical rifle with 2-7 Leupold in conetrol mounts. I love it to bits and will never sell it.

    @garyp I know what you mean, however all the other rifles I have I love even more and something has to give. So this one is likely to be the first one to go, I mean the third one to go. I have already sole the Remington 700 Classic in .222 and the Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in 7-08mm. Getting rid of stuff sucks. If I could convince myself to sell the boat my money problems would be over.

    I tried to sell a barrel to someone in Oz - even that was full of pitfalls. I gave up. The USA would be twice or more difficult.

    Put it in the buy sell swap section at a realistic price, you never know it might sell.
