Hows it going everyone? So I am buying a Barrel from Lothar Walther and they are requiring that I fill out for BIS-711. Has anyone filled this form out and what exactly do I put and where. I hate the wording of things as it makes no sense to me. What do I fill out and what do I not fill out? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I want to get this dropped in the mail tomorrow for them.

Thank you,

I sure am. The great state of Oregon. Woody said the DHS just started requiring this form to be filled out. My only thought is because the barrels are imported into the US they want to make sure there is a paper trail of barrels and if they are going to be exported again and resold or staying here. I hate the wording on the forms for sure. I just wish I was easy. There aren't any examples of it filled out that I have found. I am wondering if it's just for barrels being imported from overseas originally and the DHS just wanting to make sure they stay here.

Seems like an awful lot of work for a barrel. Try a reseller here (if any).

What is this crap? To purchase a barrel? Never heard of it and seems ridiculous. Many companies offer Lothar Walther barrels, like Spike's Tactical, etc. Buy from one of them and avoid this crap, IMO.

Fuck that.

Buy one from a retailer, or buy a different barrel.

Is it because Lothar Walther is not in US? You can buy LW barrels from several retailer and avoid this.

I've never seen or heard of that, nor would I do it. There are too many quality barrel manufacturers to put up with that BS.

I would buy from somewhere else. Barrels and parts kit do not require any paperwork in the US

That looks like it's for a business, not an individual.

Why would you want a non American barrel on an AR15? The AR15 is OUR rifle! Keep it American!

He said since I was not a FFL that it had to be filled out. When asked to give an example of how it should be filled out he said:

"The main thing is to make sure your name and address is on it. Folllowed by what your use is for. It will not be perfect so just fill it out best as possible."

Apparently it's so new that they don't even know exactly how it should be filled out. As a president of the company you'd think they should know exactly.

If it wasn't for a great price on a great barrel I would be going somewhere else. If I could find that same barrel for the same price elsewhere I'd do that instead for sure. I haven't sent the check yet so if someone can point me to a place that has that exact deal I am all for it.

I imagine the form is needed by all people / resellers when buying directly from the manufacturers.... especially a foreign manufacturer.

It really isn't a big deal, it is more of a " I will not resell this product outside of the USA."

Just like when you acknowledge the same thing from the various distributors.... "Agreeing to the terms of service" etc...

Quite honestly .... I would phone them again and double check.

I really think it is more of a "Cover my keister" thing for them.

Google search....

Who Will be Required to Complete a BIS711 Form?

All Customers with Foreign “Ship-To” addresses.
Those Domestic customers we know or believe will export our product.
Information on Form is cross-checked with “Consolidated Screening List” that is accessed via the BIS web site (www.bis.doc.gov) to validate customer/end-user is not: In a Restricted Country (i.e. on the Nonproliferation Sanction list);

Who's Woody and who exactly are you buying it from?
Link Posted: 4/21/2016 3:42:48 PM EDT
Probably has to do with ITAR. I remember Woody mentioning ITAR during one of our conversations a couple years back.

However, being this is not an export, I'm not sure why they need it.

All that said, I'd fill one out if asked to buy another Lothar Walther barrel with a matched bolt.

Sure, it's a "hassle" compared to the majority of barrel purchases, but IMHO the barrel is worth the added hassle.

If you don't want to deal with it, get a Krieger.
