Hi,

I’ll be in The Netherlands later this month, and returning back to Canada. I am toying with the idea of purchasing a Weihrauch from Krale and bring it back with me. Haven’t decided between a HW95/97/98. Has anyone done this? Is it even possible or advisable?

Is that really worth to do so?!

I mean you may still need to pay the tax to get it through the customs, and paperwork and you will need to carry it with you such a long way....

I don’t know if it worth it! That’s why I’m asking :D Would save on shipping and duties, might still have to pay taxes, but would still be a couple hundred dollars less.
From what I have read, It needs to be declared when checking in, show PAL, and then locked with a copy of the declaration. On landing it again has to be declared, case opened etc. Doesn’t sound too onerous, but I could be missing something.

I've brought PAL rifles from the US into Canada many times without issues, but never by air. You may have to pay taxes according to the value of your rifle - depending on how much personal allowance you have / how long you've been away (up to $800 max).

"...Importation of newly acquired firearms

74. Residents may import newly acquired non-restricted firearms into Canada or may move them in transit through Canada if they present a valid Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) or Possession Only Licence (POL) authorizing the possession of a non-restricted firearm.
75. Those residents who arrive in Canada without a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL)...who are attempting to import a newly acquired firearm do not have the option of having the firearm held by CBSA. No 40-day holding period will be granted. The importer may choose to abandon the goods to the Crown, or to export the firearm..."

starts on page 18.

sub500fps (non regulated) airgun info is addressed in this document as well.

caveat: chk w/ CBSA for any updates. this document shows thumb-assisted opening knives as ok to bring into canada but CBSA has been barring importation/entry into canada lately of these (legal) knives.

Normally its not a problem, but the CBSA has been making things up as they go along lately.
Mail has been very delayed.

I’ll be gone long enough for the full $800 allowance.
I going to drop by the local CBSA station and check in with them for any help advice.
