To bring a scope by flight from Hongkong

Post by nikitagupta2106 » Sun Oct 16, 2022 11:40 pm

Hi,

I'll be coming to India from Hongkong and planning to bring a scope (just 1 item) in my luggage.

Will this create a problem?

Regards,
Nikita

Those topics are old 7,8 years old.Time has changed i also needs current info if someone got it recently in hand bag from abroad.my niece is arriving
in India from USA so cant risk it needs to be dead sure.got a rifle from artek D.O.O Slovenia but they refused to send scope with it maybe it was not written on import permit from NRAI.NRAI is issuing permit now days and importing a Blaser or 357 magnum days are long gone. Earlier renowned shooters used to become eligible for import of Blaser after scoring mqs in 300 meters now they wont .now can only import single shot peep sight,without magazine.Many people gave their money to a old Banned member here he promised to import nor rifle arrived nor shooters money

yes check on NRAI website they have documents for importing 357 magnum pistols and Blaser rifle now they have written restricted in front of it.
even .22 is not allowed with magazine and without backplate with hook peep site etc.in simple words only weapons that are used in sport shooting
you can import those only. These match grade weapons are damn expensive around 3000 to 4000 euro for Walther kk500,grunig, bliker are much more expensive
