As read it would not apply to minor parts,only barrels,cylinders,receivers.Yes those parts have to be inspected and registered/stamped with the ATF before importation,minor parts like most here are importing as stated in your paragraph and clearly shown as not needing any permit.

The part you are referencing applies mainly in part to rifles,ammunition and other parts that could be utilized in war only,not a small .22 target rifle

The complete laws shown in the below PDF file clearly states that these purchases are not under any monetary scrutiny,nor are they even subject as they are minor parts.

Just my opinion,believe who you want,here is the ATF form applying to weapons,ammunition etc of War

If I couldn't read a simple ATF rule correctly, I wouldn't have made it through the first semester in law-school, nor would I have been able to successfully export firearms from Germany and import them under my own FFL here repeatedly.

Let me help you understand the legal jargon:

a permit is not required for the importation of:
.....
b. Minor components and parts of Category I(a) firearms when the total value does not exceed $100 wholesale in any single transaction. Barrels, cylinders, receivers (frames) or complete breech mechanisms always need Form 6 Part 1 and 6A filed after importation.

As I stated, CBP rarely reinforces the gun export act in their German facilities but if they do they will not let you off by merely paying a small fine. You can file Form 6 Part 1 as an unlicensed individual for parts that you personally use, it is free of charge and takes usually less than four weeks.

You decide what risks you take.

Well I read it as a wholesale item that part of the law refers to,we are paying retail prices,so I'm thinking they are excluded from that process in its entirety.Who is to determine what the actual wholesale cost are,you,me.?

I would think that Waffencenter would be the only ones in that position to decide and they can simply say their wholesale cost are well below the $100 (entirely plausible) you cite at any given time to simplify matter.I highly doubt the CPB or the ATF are in a position to determine what a company in Germany's wholesale cost are at any given time,not to mention a significant amount of the cost are shipping and insurance related that would even go further to lower the cost associated with purchase's.I think you are overthinking this and maybe trying to scare off folks that would otherwise have to rely on someone who imports and resells items at much higher cost as part of a retail operation here in the states.

But thanks for helping me understand "legal jargon"

Myself, Don Blue , and Tommy have purchased parts through them on different occasions. Everything arrived as ordered. Far as I know Tommy has not been arrested or had the FBI,or ATF come knocking on his door. He is just trying to help people get parts for their suhl rifles without getting ripped off by people who jack up prices due to lack of availability.
