Possible to import?

Location:

I know that PTR imported quite a few of the BD 44 (PTR 44) rifles a while back, but is it still possible to import more?

I'm very interested to know, especially since the rifle has already cleared ATF inspection. Is there a minimum/ceiling for the number which could be imported?

That was a joint effort between the guy at PTR (who is no longer there) and another guy.  There were a lot of hurdles to make that deal happen.  It can potentially happen again, but the odds are slim with minimal rewards and a lot of risk.  If you imported 150, don't expect to get 19K for them from 150 people.

EDIT: I re-read what you said and that makes sense. They're going for 3,400 Euros online right now ($3,800). I imagine a similar price could be had here, though I'm not sure what the demand would be.

Either way, I'm very willing to jump through hurdles. Or, if I can, at least import ONE and see the quality of the heat treating and see if it's better than the defective ones from 10 years ago.

I re-read the responder's post and it made more sense the 2nd time.

That would be such a cool gun to own.  I've always been curious about the feasibility of one-off importation for a highly motivated buyer.  Interested to see what you find out.
