SEC. 521. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States receiving appropriated funds under this Act or any other Act shall obligate or expend in any way such funds to pay administrative expenses or the compensation of any officer or employee of the United States to deny any application submitted pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 2778(b)(1)(B) and qualified pursuant to 27 CFR Sec. 478.112 or .113, for a permit to import United States origin `curios or relics' firearms, parts, or ammunition.


Can anyone tell me what this means?

Thanks

Funny, I thought I heard that US origin c&r's were ineligible for reimportation.

Does this override that?

I thought I remembered that the reimportation ban was going bye-bye. IIRC it was part of some compromise bill...but that could have been defeated.

When I began building a Garand I couldn't get any reimported receivers, but most of my other parts are reimported.  This was four years ago.

Never heard of such bill.

From a book by Joe Poyer on Amazon.com

After Congress approved the reimportation of certain military rifles for collecting purposes in 1986, it is estimated that nearly half a million of the 1.5 to 2 million M1 Garands shipped overseas to allied and friendly nations were allowed to be reimported. Collector's snapped them up eagerly and began to restore them to original condition. But the M1 Garand had undergone a such continuous process of improvement and upgrading that by the end of production in 1955, hardly a single part remained as it had originally been designed.


I'm not saying it's gospel, but I have read that they were going to be allowed. It might all be BS, because I have read a lot of BS on the internet.
