2. The shipping bolts, barrels, or receivers without an export license.
3. An export license will require a purchase order from the customer and an import certificate from the foreign government. It will cost a minimum of US$100.00 in addition to the cost of the products and shipping/handling costs. It will take about 6 weeks to get approval (or denial) from the United States government.
