The US State Dept. Has rejected my request for an Export Licence for a Colt MT6400C to Italy. It seems that this gun is classified as a military weapon. As you may be aware this is actually a sport carbine, fixed pinned stock, no bayonet lug, no flash hider and has already been exported to Italy.
I went in touch with the State Dept for further information and I was told that it's not the first time that a MT6400C has been reject, but they weren't able to provide me detail about the technical feature that make this process so complicated. They also said that Colt Manufacturing is well aware about this problem, but the last time I call their customer support to seek their help nobody mentioned that.
I would be grateful if anybody could suggest how to handle this.
