Re: Can I import Russian Lend Lease 1911?
I really wouldn't call Russian contract 1911's a "dime a dozen" (the Blue Book rates one at almost $10k), but getting one in Europe and trying to bring it back is certainly not worth the problems that could arise if a law is violated. Legal fees and court costs, plus fines and possible jail time if convicted, will make $10k seem pretty cheap. And the gun is lost to boot.
Not to mention that the gun might not even be genuine. We have all heard the stories about how "my father brought this S&W Model 29 back from WWII and he used it to shoot Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo .... "
