    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience ordering from Brownell's website then having the item shipped via UPS Express here to the Philippines. If so, did they ship it straight to your doorstep? Any other details to take note of or be aware of?

    I know the shipping costs an arm and a leg but just curious.

    TIA!

    They take typically 7-10 days for me to get an order from them.

    Midway, on the other hand is usually at my door in 3 days.

    They don't allow firearm parts and components, most night vision systems and some optics without an importation license.

    They don't allow Philippine based credit cards with the intent of delivering restricted orders on US addresses as well.

    If one does intend to order non restricted items I suggest emailing them first just to make sure and choosing the post office as courier. Because most often UPS and FEDEX have additional customs charges.

    Midway, Cheaper than Dirt and some other outfit don't entertain locally based credit cards as well.

    IMO, for unrestricted items best bet would be Cabelas.
     
  5. Brownells and Midway, dont typically want to accept international orders for parts unfortunately.

    You may be able to find ways through an international consolidator where they will source it for you, then consolidate it into one package. This they will do for a fee but you need to supply the appropriate import permits.

    I used to get order from Brownells, unfortunately now they would ask for an import license from the Gov't. No quick fix for this one.
     
  7. That would probably go for gun videos as well. I tried ordering a Magpul Dynamics Art of the Dynamic Shotgun DVD from Amazon.com, no dice.

    Hunting scopes? Probably.

    Wow it's that bad huh...

    How about if I ask someone who's coming home from the US to bring it in his/her check-in luggage? Will that work?

    Items like: holsters and sights
     
  9. Holsters should be okay. Not sure about sights going in PHL as that all now depends with the airport police. They have their own opinion on things....

    What are you ordering, I believe Lone Wolf has an international side, not sure if they do the Philippines.

    Im not encouraging this, but I know of someone who was able to bring home an after market barrel by mixing it with a bunch of tools.

    I really just want to order a holster and some night sights. :)

    Will Brownell's allow those items? Or will having someone bring them home be a better option?

    Thanks guys!
     
  13. Brownells unfortunately wont do international orders so you'd have to make other suitable arrangements to get it in, Im afraid

    Brownells is an international exporter who will happily work with a customer to meet whatever legal obligations exist (vis a vis gun parts exportation from the USA).

    In fact, Brownells does do international orders, happily, politely, and legally.
     
  16. I tried to have Novak sights shipped internationally but was unfortunately declined sometime last year though

    As i have said in my previous post They would require an import Permit for the Philippines.

    One issue with Surefire is the fact that the lithium batteries are included, and Brownells cannot ship the lithium batteries. If you want to order something like this, you'll have to make a special request for them to remove the lithium batteries from the package prior to shipment - which they are willing to do - to enable the order to go through.
